We had gone to a "meet and greet" to meet another dog, but returned with this furry little imp, a charming, smart, and lively combination of joy and mischief who was hard to resist. When the rescue group found him, he was just a puppy, miserable, hungry, and covered with mange. As if that weren't enough, he had been born missing a bone in his right leg - the Vet's advice was to let Mother Nature compensate for it, which she has done. A completely recovered and well fed Archie chases, rolls, and romps with dogs of all sizes as though he weighed a hundred pounds and loves every minute of it. He can be stubborn, bull-headed, and an incorrigible scamp, but he's so happy and such a charmer, that when we should be upset with him, we end up laughing. He and Lucy, our other rescue dog, are like brother and sister and having them in our lives is a real joy.
