Hi everyone! My name is Archie and I’m seven years old. I’d like to start by thanking everyone at Golden Rescue, particularly my amazing foster family, for taking me in. Before I met all you wonderful people, life was not very kind to me and it left me a bit of a nervous wreck. When I first arrived in my foster home, I was really scared and shut down. I couldn’t eat or drink and I basically hid tight in a dark corner of the room. It took a while, but I soon started to trust again because I could feel love. As I started to get comfortable in my safe surroundings, my personality started to come out. I heard my foster mom describe me as “an amazing, sweet, loving, gentle boy who deserves another chance at a good life”. I almost cried when I heard her say that. Yes, with all of your help, I have come a long way and I am very grateful. As I get back to myself, here is a bit of who I am. I am a quiet boy. I never bark. I am very gentle with my treats and with children. You can touch me anywhere. I can be left on my own if you have to go out without me. I don’t need much exercise. I like sleeping more than running. I’m not a fan of loud noises, particularly thunder, so a quiet home would be best for me. I haven’t had a lot of exposure to other dogs but I’m friendly with them on my walks. The doc says I’m healthy except I have a thing called hip dysplasia and a wonky back paw, which affects my gait a bit, but I get around fine and can even jump into the car on my own. That’s pretty good, eh? Well, that’s my story. Life has sure dealt me a few bad cards but OMG, lately all I keep getting are aces. Thank you all. I am one grateful Golden.

Archie is currently being fostered in Kitchener, ON. If you would like more information about Archie please call our hotline toll-free at 1-866-712-8444 or email and one of our volunteers will be happy to return your call.
