Archer was part of a litter that was born at an animal shelter, and he was rescued the first day he was old enough to be adopted. Archer was in his new home for only a few days when he suddenly seemed very sick. He was brought to the vet immediately and was diagnosed with parvo, and given a 50/50 chance of surviving. He spent 9 days in the hospital fighting for his life, and weighed only 2 pounds at his most ill. Being the little fighter that he is, he pulled through and is now a happy, healthy dog at just over a year old. He loves sitting on laptops, running around the house at top speed, and eating ice cubes!
