Weight:11 lbs.


Archie aka Jughead aka Shadow.  Archie was found shopping alone at a very heavily trafficked retail area.  Luckily a volunteer for the group snatched him up before tragedy could occur.  No tags, no collar, no microchip. After due diligence in trying to locate his owners, he is now officially part of the Forgotten Friends program and is searching for permanent new digs.

If you like a dog who:

Needs to be your shadow 24/7.

Is housetrained and readily uses a doggie door.

Gets along great with the four dogs in his foster home that are his size.

Will kill a stuffed animal in true rat terrier fashion in record time.

Does good on a leash and great in the car.

Is smart and responds well to positive correction.

Is an excellent squirrel hunter, though he has yet to catch one.

Will go for a walk or snuggle for hours.

Then Archie might be the dog for you!

If you don’t’ like:

Someone who is a shadow 24/7

Someone who loves to snuggle up next to you in bed under the covers. (but will grudgingly settle for a doggie bed or a crate near you).

Someone who can be a little mouthy when he plays but doesn’t bite, and responds to positive commands to stop.

Someone who can be very vocal when he spots a squirrel.

Someone who play growls when playing with other dogs.

Someone who does have anxiety when left alone.

Then Archie is definitely not the dog for you!


His ideal home will be one where his humans are home all day and want a constant companion. He would love a fur sibling to play with, but if his human

Is prepared to give him lots of attention and play time, the sibling is negotiable.  Toys are an absolute necessity and be prepared to pick up some stuffing. LOL

Due to his being mouthy when he plays, no children under ten please.

Archie’s adoption fee is $387.87 which includes tax. It includes vet exam, vaccinations, fecal and heart worm test, preventative, flea and tick treatment, neuter, and microchip.

Please be aware that we rarely have information on our dogs being good with cats as most of our foster homes don’t have them.

Adoption decisions are based on the best overall match and not done on a first-come-first-serve basis.
