Archie / 3.5 Years old / Male (Archie is in Foster Care in Victoria)

Image Three and a half year old Archie was surrendered to GRR because of changes in his family circumstances. Archie was very loved in his previous home but he did not have many opportunities to be walked or socialised with other dogs. However, Archie behaves well around other dogs as Archie is currently in foster care with two other Goldies and this lovely boy has always lived with another dog. Happily, Archie is cat friendly and has previously lived with a cat.
Archie’s foster carer is working on his loose lead walking as Archie tends to either pull quite hard on lead or drop to the ground refusing to move. Archie needs a family that is willing to continue with his training and behavioural plan currently being used by his foster carers.
Archie was diagnosed with mild epilepsy prior to entering GRR’s care. Whilst in foster care Archie has had one mild seizure. GRR’s vet has advised that this boy should not be medicated at this stage but advises that as Archie grows older, medication will need to be considered. Whilst in foster care Archie has had one mild seizure so information on warning signs or triggers at this time are not available. However, after the epilepsy episode Archie recovered well with no side-affects. Archie is otherwise in great health.
Image Archie comes microchipped, desexed, vaccinated, heartworm tested and treated for heart worm, intestinal worms and fleas.
Archie requires a home where:
- someone is at home much of the time to keep him company;
- his family can provide the necessary veterinary care/natural therapy to manage Archie’s epilepsy;
- there is another laid back, well socialised, medium to large size dog aged between 4 – 9 years in the home;
- the general atmosphere of the home is not chaotic or noisy so that Archie lives in a calm environment;
If you would like to open your heart and home to Archie and meet the criteria listed please complete the Questionnaire on either the Contact page or the Current Rescues page of GRR’s website.
To assist GRR in finding the perfect fit for Archie only applicants who meet ALL of the criteria listed on this poster will be considered for adoption. Applicants who do not meet all the criteria listed will not receive a reply.

We look forward to hearing from you.
