Archie is a 2 year old, 17 pound Jack Russell-Shih Tzu mix. A very handsome black and white dog that we found hiding in a corner at the animal shelter. Once we got him home, he relaxed and became a different dog. Very playful, happy and confident.
He is a dog that is not real big, but has plenty of endurance. A great option for someone who enjoys hiking or jogging, but doesn't necessarily want a large breed dog. Even though we believe Archie can keep up with the best of them, he also isn't the type that needs a ton of exercise to be happy. He is happy to chill in his crate while his foster family is away.
We have not had Archie around children, but feel that kids of at least teen age should be fine.
He has a great time playing with another dog "Rio" in his foster home, so seems to be very dog social.
