Hi, I'm Archer! I'm a very friendly puppy who's ready to play with and learn from you! I also love playing with my toys, especially tug-o-war. And I love going on walks and am great on hikes. I'm learning how to walk on a leash and am getting better every day! I'm already crate-trained and will happily take a nap in there all on my own, especially when you are near. I sleep through the night without a peep or accident. During the day my foster mom takes me out several times, so I'm nearly potty trained.
I really enjoy being in the middle of the action; but I'm also very happy lying beside you, chewing on a bone, while you maybe play a boardgame or read. I'm still a puppy, so I can be pretty energetic (well, until it's time for one of my puppy naps!). And I do like to jump and tumble. When I go on walks with my foster mom, I love meeting everyone I see (runners, bikers, moms with kids) and am friendly with dogs I encounter. I'm very brave and curious, and can't wait to learn new things and snuggle up with you at the end of the day!
Archer is up-to-date on vaccinations, microchipped, neutered, and heartworm negative.
Archer was a stray who was brought to a local shelter.
