This is Archie. He is about 1-2 year old Pit bull, who weighs about 40 pounds. He is a very social guy that loves to cuddle. He loves everyone he meets and sometimes forgets his manners about jumping but he is working that. He loves to play with dogs. In the limited experience he has with small dogs, he was good but he didn’t comprehend the size difference and was a little rough, so he will need some work on gentleness around them. He does well with the dog savvy cats in his foster home, after a proper introduction. He doesn’t seem to have any prey drive and just wants to play with everything. He is a very eager to please and sensitive boy. He is smart and learns quick but still puppy in his attention span sometimes. He knows his obedience commands and he will come with a lesson to go over the training. He is a higher energy boy, who loves to run, that will need more than a walk. He is very agile and fast, so he would be good in agility if that was an interest. He is learning how to run with a bike too. Overall, he is a very good, social boy. The one issue that has disappeared at this foster home but could make an appearance, while he is settling in to his new home, is some food guarding issues. He was pulled out of Lorain County Kennel and fell ill with Parvo. During his treatment, he lost a lot of weight. When he felt better, he was starving and guarding his food. This is not uncommon in dogs that had parvo. Once he realized he was getting food and no one was taking it, he has been fine. His foster will go over what to do, if it does appear again. However, he may never show the behavior again. He is crate trained, UTD on shots, neutered, and ready for a new home. show less
