Meet ARCHIE!

Meet Archie!! He is a 2 year old Catahoula with beautiful blue eyes. He weighs 35 pounds. This guy is very smart and obedient. Archie is good with kids and other dogs. He doesn't appreciate dogs that don't respect his personal space and would prefer mellow canine companions. Archie is a herding dog through and through and would love a home that can give him a job. He knows basic commands, is great on a leash and is house trained. He wants to be your best friend, snuggle on the couch and then get up and go on an adventure!
