Archie had served his statutory 7 day period at a local stray kennels who asked AfG if we could take him into our care. Luckily we had a suitable foster home available for him and were able to take him in.
He was very underweight and very depressed and infested with external and internal parasites. The kennels estimated him to be about 8 years old. But under inspection at our vets, she, as we did, believed him to be far younger, but because of his neglected condition with his teeth coated in tartar and muscle wastage etc, he appeared to look elderly.
After being treated for parasites he arrived in his foster home and instantly made himself comfortable with his experienced foster mum, her 2 young boys and a young rescued Rottweiler. Archie steadily improved and soon blossomed into the young healthy hound he should be.
After a few months in his foster home, Archie found himself an amazing forever home with 2 Italian Spinoni and a trial hound and enjoys his life to the full.
The family also own a property in France and all spend half their time there. So a life full of fun and adventure for Archie and his carers and canine housemates.
