Archie is a Cocker Spaniel who was rescued from Edinburgh Dog and Cat home 3 years ago. He was adopted by owner Liz King after the tragic and sudden loss of her husband David. Liz and David were happily married for 33 years and his loss was absolutly devastating.

Archie is an extremely sweet and very loving dog. He is every bit the definition of a faithful companion and has brought his forever home positive light in the darkest of times.

Archie’s previous history was unknown and he had some health issues which were being treated by centre however this in no way influenced Lizs decision to take him home. The first thing Archie did when he got to his new home was went to her husbands chair, curled up and went to sleep. He has had such a positive impact on her life and has also been of great comfort and company throughout the difficult impacts Covid19 has had on daily life.

Vet Mair Tyler at Westport Vets South Queensferry practice says:

“Archie is such a lovely wee dog! He truly brightens up your day when he comes into the practice. So happy and waggy tailed, an absolutely smashing wee dog! We just love having him when he comes in to see us.”

Covid19 has brought hard times for everyone but particularly to individuals who have suffered major life changes. The pandemic lockdowns, social restrictions and limitations, have made it extremely tough for people who may be on their own.

Archie literally brightens up a room, he has what the Westport Team describe as a ‘disney dog’ personna – beautiful big puppy dog eyes, a character as sweet as sugar and one who welcomes everyone he meets like his new best friend! A wonderful dog whos super happy nature is also a reflection of the love and life that Liz has given him. Archie has brought so much purpose, positive energy and love to his owner through the darkest and most difficult of times, a true hero.
