January 02, 2019: Meet adoptable deaf 2.5 year old Archie who is looking for a loving home with someone who will cherish him, be 100% committed to him and always keep him safe.

From his rescue: Archie is 2 yrs old rescued from the ACC in NYC. He is a very smart deaf dog who is a real big softie. He has been professionally trained and would be great with a teenager or an adult. He looks to please and loves belly rubs and balls. Archie is not food aggressive at all. He responses very well to signing commands.


The ACC was going to euthanize him for his birth defect, but instead, Furbridge rescued him. He was adopted twice but was returned to no fault of him, but the humans didn’t know how to properly communicate with him. He’s friendly with humans and is also good with small dogs with a proper introduction and watchful eye of the smaller dog’s attitude.


He is currently with a Furbrigde foster who has 3 small and older dogs and 1 cat and Archie is a very good boy with his foster parents and foster siblings. He thinks he’s a lap dog, but the reality is another.
