At three years of age, "Archie," has spent half of his life impounded at the facility and the time has taken its toll.

Archie wants a friend - be it human or canine - he wants someone to spend his time with.

This handsome boy has been at the facility since July 2012 - an incredibly long period of time to be without a family and without one-on-one companionship.

Archie is described as friendly and playful - he loves belly rubs and does not mind being handled. Archie needs to be adopted - he needs a family and he needs to be loved.

Please take a moment to network Archie's information and help him leave this facility...a year and a half is long enough.
