Animal Aid photo of Arhcie’s wounds
Archie once featured on Animal Aid’s website as an abused dog in need of a special owner who would help him regain his confidence for life and trust in humans. When he arrived at Animal Aid he had a large cyst on his shoulder that required surgery as well as several other wounds on his back. It was suspected that they had been inflicted by an uncaring, intolerant and cruel human being. He was fearful of people, especially men, and reluctant to seek affection. Men in baseball caps and empty bottles still freak him out.
Through the match making program run by Animal Aid, Archie was given a second chance of finding a happy new life in a safe family home with loving new parents Roxanne and Sean. Interestingly Roxanne was also given a second chance at life in 1994 when she was the recipient of a double lung and heart transplant. In June she will represent Australia in athletics at the World Transplant Games in Sweden. Pet Shots Photography wish her all the best in her endeavours.
Archie is one of the many pets who are helping other dogs and cats in need of emergency care and rehoming. He will feature in the limited edition coffee table book Pet Shots Photography is publishing to help raise funds for Animal Aid rescues, rehoming and veterinary care.
