About me & Home Requirements 

Archie is a 2 year old lurcher that was rescued with 4 of his siblings from awful conditions, he is now vaccinated, chipped, neutered and in good physical health and is looking for a very special home.

Archie is very sensitive and will need a very patient home.  He is crate trained and this is his safe place but he is not currently toilet trained so basic puppy training will be needed.

He walks nicely on the lead when he is feeling confident but he does suffer with his anxiety when nervous so he must be walked on a well fitted harness with 2 leads (one attached to harness and one attached to his collar).  He is very food motivated and food must be used at all times to help distract him in difficult situations. 

Archie is very loving once he get to know you but does not like to be feel trapped so he is a dog that  needs to be touched and stroked on his terms and is not a dog for cuddles and kisses.




Archie is looking for a very quiet home with no or very few visitors.

He needs a safe enclosed garden with a 6ft fence height as a minimum.

Archie does not trust strangers so his humans need to understand that he will cower and hide rather than greet new people and they need to be patient and work at Archies pace.

Archie needs a home with No cats or small furries, No children or visiting children, he needs company so needs someone home most of the day with lots of time to give him.

Archie is not suitable for a first time dog owner and this special boy needs 100% commitment to help him gain more confidence.
