BIO:
Hi Friends! My name is Archie and I'm almost 3 1/2 years old and all beautiful Golden. I love to play outside in a fenced in area. Outside, I am fun and silly! Very friendly and affectionate - that's me! Actually, I've been learning that can also mean a little clingy, a little pushy, and OK, maybe a little possessive. I love to walk and I'm great on a leash. I have no issues with other dogs when walking. I am told I am a classic "resource guarder". Well, I really LOVE my food, toys, and some people in my life! Things that are of high value to me, I tend to guard. So, no kids in my home. It's possible (because I'm so cute), that they may forget I also have special needs. Speaking of forgetting things, sometimes I forget to give a signal and I get snippy. So, I need someone who knows how to react if that happens. I realize now that I am a poor decision maker and I'm working on that. I have learned to respond well to guidance from an experienced handler and how to build a relationship in a structured environment. I have learned stronger social skills and I am a great follower. I think my leader should be someone very experienced with dogs like me. Maybe that's a retired K9 officer, military personnel who trains dogs, or maybe even someone who trains dogs for their job! Please ask to meet me! - Archie
