Hello, I’m Archie!

Weight: 49 lbs

Have you been dreaming of having an Australian Cattle Dog? I fit that profile to a T!

Not only do I have that handsome, traditional Cattle Dog look, but I am also super smart and eager to learn.

I absolutely love to play tug-o-war and am really good at fetch. I know “sit” for sure and it wouldn’t be hard for me to learn more with some time and patience from my new family. I get a huge smile and my little nubby tail wiggles when I get praise for my awesome skills.

Since I am a herding dog to the core, I would do best in an active home with older children!

A farm is not required but my friends here at FWACC think I would LOVE to have lots of space to live my best life.

I am a little picky about my dog friends, but I do coexist pretty well with mellow dogs and when I feel like it, I do like to play with certain friends. Make sure you bring your other dogs in to meet me!

FWACC has the right to place this dog in the best-fit home.

Please know that we are only guessing at a predominant breed or breed mix for the dogs in our Adoption Center. Visual breed identification is very unreliable, and we have no way of guaranteeing the breed mix of any dog. Here at our shelter, we get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each dog based on personality, not by breed label. Ask to meet me so you can get to know my personality.
