No Big Surprise Here!

5 Mar

Well, as we predicted, it didn’t take us very long to get Archer adopted. With his cute mug and winning personality, we knew it would only be a matter of days before he found his new home. And he has!

When we rescued Archer, he had kennel cough and what we thought was ringworm, so he went straight into quarantine boarding at our vet’s office for treatment. All of our foster homes have resident dogs, so we didn’t want to risk him infecting any other pups. While he was living at the vet, we had them do thorough tests to see what this round, hairless, mass-looking-thing on his hind leg was and to make sure everything else was working normally.

Well, the diagnosis was better that we thought: the mass is a histiocytoma. Basically, it’s a benign mass that will dissipate over the course of 6-8 weeks. Nothing to worry about there, and he was quickly getting over his kennel cough, too. He’d be ready for a home soon! So when we knew he was okay to be around other dogs, we brought him up to our event at Furry Fiends in Inwood this past week, and had made an appointment for a potential adopter to meet us there as well.

Well, at first glace, they knew he was the one for them and they were the adopters for him. Archer, who’s new name is Robert Archer aka Bob, showed off all his best traits: his overt friendliness with people and dogs, his ability to calm down and settle quickly, his lack of desire to bark. He was great and won over his new dads with ease! Congrats Bob! Have a wonderful life!

Many thanks to West Village Veterinary Hospital for taking such great care of Archer while he was there. Also, thanks to the Deja Foundation for helping Bully Project cover the costs of Archer’s medical bills.

Adoptable Pittie of the Week: Archer

We found Archer chilling out in his crate at the public shelter one night while we were doing some “window shopping.” We couldn’t resist his stunning green eyes and calm demeanor in the crate, so we asked to meet him. The next day, we were making arrangements to pick him up from the shelter and he is now already available for adoption through Bully Project.

Archer is approximately 8 months old, and definitely still has the puppy personality to match! He loves to hop around like a bunny, and give a big, “Hello,” to anyone he passes on the street. Any dog he sees on the street, he greets with a pleasant play bow. But the best part about this boy is that he’s already got some basic obedience under his belt collar.

He knows how to sit all on his own, without being asked or shown a treat. He is already housebroken, not have any accidents inside so far whatsoever. Archer is well behaved inside his crate, and comes in and out of it very easily. With all of this in mind, we’re under the impression that he was previously owned and cared for, too, especially since he was already neutered and microchipped upon intake at the shelter. (And before you ask: yes, the microchip was scanned and the owners contacted – no response.)

Despite his youth, and puppy playfulness, Archer is also great at settling down and relaxing – even when there are people around to play with. It’s like he knows exactly what we want from him. Regardless, we will still impress onto whoever adopts him that further training is going to be necessary to ensure that this boy develops into a well-adjusted adult. He may even be appropriate for Canine Good Citizen certification and therapy dog work later on down the line.
