Archie has found his forever home with Priyana in Manhattan! Congratulations, Archie!
Hi, My name is Archie!
With a name like Archie and a face like mine, how can you go wrong? I am an asbsolutely adorable Pug mix with a very enchanting personality. I have great big brown eyes that look up at you with the cutest expression on earth. I have a short black coat that requires very little in the way of grooming. I live in Brooklyn, NY, but would be happy to move to a great home anywhere within a 100 mile radius – just so long as you are willing to come and meet me and my owner first.
I am just 4 years old and I weigh 22 pounds. I am neutered, up to date on my shots and very healthy. Basically, I am ready to love!
I have a very loving, gentle and playful personality. I get along great with other dogs and love kids, too. I have never met a cat, but I am sure I would be fine with the feline species, as long as they are the dog-friendly kind.
My owner loves me dearly. Sadly, our life has unexpectedly changed in the past year due to divorce. My owner is working very long hours, and I spend way too much time alone. He knows that this is not a good situation for me, and is hoping to find a wonderful new home for me where I will be cherished, kept safe, happy and healthy, and be given lots of attention and playtime.
He would dearly love to keep in touch with me, and would even be willing to be my pet sitter once in a while if needed.

Archie’s Current Home Environment
We live in a two bedroom, 3rd story walkup in Brooklyn. Our house is typically quiet with no smoking or drug use. Archie has his own doggy bed which he lies in often. He has several toys to play with. Unfortunately, Archie is home alone often due to my work schedule.
Archie’s Current Family:
My wife and I separated about 6 months ago. I have an infant daughter that spends every other weekend and 2 nights each week with Archie and I.
Archie’s Favorite Toys, Foods, Activities?
Archie loves plush squeaky toys. He will lie in his bed and chew on his plush toys for hours (I think it’s a nervous tendency). He also loves rope toys and will happily play tug of war. He typically eats Iams kibble and he loves treats such as milkbones and doggy jerky. He loves to go to the dog park and play with the other smaller dogs.
Cute Archie Story:
Archie has some weird tendencies. One of which is that he often won’t touch his food until he knows that it’s time to go out for a walk so this is when I typically feed him. I put his food out and then give him clues that we are going for a walk like asking “do you want to go for a walk?”, getting his leash out and shaking it, putting my shoes on, etc. These activities make him very excited and the more he thinks that we are going for a walk, the more likely he is to go chow down on his kibble. Sometimes when I am rushing around to get ready in the morning, I will give his leash to my 14 month old daughter. She has learned that when she shakes it, Archie gets excited and starts eating his food. This is endlessly entertaining for me to watch.
Why is Archie Being Rehomed?
When my wife and I separated, Archie had to start spending long periods of time alone at home. Already, I feel like he is being emotionally neglected due to this and unfortunately my work hours are going to get even longer in the near future. I feel that it’s only fair to him to find him a good home where he can get the attention that he deserves. He’s a great dog and I will miss him dearly. I wish that my ex-wife could take him in but she lives in a building that does not allow pets.
Archie’s Perfect Adoptive Home Will Be:
Good natured people who will give Archie the love that he deserves. He should be in a house where someone, or another dog will be with him and not leave him alone for more than a few hours at a time. He could probably use the help of a good trainer (I am not). He’s shown that he’s receptive to training and the right person might be able to leash train and/or crate train Archie if it seems appropriate.
I will be moving to a new apartment in about 30 to 45 days. I am really hoping to find Archie a good new home by then. Also, I have more cute photos of Archie to share but I am not sure how to upload more than one.
