Archie was found wandering the streets with a chain embedded in his neck. He probably had it on as a puppy and as he grew, it slowly strangled him, creating a deep wound that threatened his life.
Fortunately a vet found him and saved his life. He was taken in by Howl of A Dog.
His physical wounds healed, but his emotional ones needed more time. He kept hiding and avoiding eye contact because he couldn’t decide whether to trust his rescuers or not.
“He was scared of pretty much everything: people, noises…Only he knows what life he had before! It took time for him to understand that not all people are mean,” Howl of A Dog explained.
However, Archie’s recovery is now complete and what he’s wishing for most now is an adoptive family!
“Now Archie is a healthy, happy dog and he needs an adoptive family to offer him the loving home he has most probably never had,” his rescuers write.
“Archie is very sweet-natured, affectionate and loving with everyone, He’s playful and friendly with other dogs, loves squeaky toys and car rides, likes to be taken out for walks and he’s good on leash.”
“He is a young dog, less than 2 years old, medium sized, 16 kg (35lbs), neutered, microchipped and fully vaccinated.”
