Archie is a 4 year old male neutered Whippet. Archie came in to the rescue as he was returned to his breeder as he has developed auto immune disease. His breeder is fantastic and is aware with his condition he is going to need as much promotion as possible to find his forever home, she would keep him herself but Archie needs a quieter home.
Archie is clean in house and sleeps in a crate at night, he is good with other dogs, however he is a talker and a lot of people miss judge this as him being grumpy, but he just has a lot to say for himself!! lol
He is great on the lead and loves a good cuddle!
He would suit a quieter household that wants a friend to keep them company on gentle strolls. Archie does have auto immune disease, this affects his joints, he is on 1 5mg steriod a day and for a two month supply it costs £9, on a day to day basis this is not an expensive condition.
However if he has a flare up, he could need hospitalization to bring this under control. This has only happened once, two years ago when his condition was first discovered and it cost his owner £500.
Sadly with this condition we can’t say how likely it is to happen again, he may never have a flare up again and may only need his steriods. So he will need a super special owner who is willing to take this amazing little chap on, as you will not be able to insure him for this condition.
Archie is neutered, micro chipped, up to date with all flea treatment and wormer and comes with 5 weeks free insurance (for any other condition and accidents). If you feel you could offer the gorgeous Archie a home, either call 02380 893188 or e-mail [email protected]
