ARCHIMEDES – German Shepherd/Irish Wolfhound/Border Collie – Female – 2-1/2 Y



Archimedes was named after a Greek mathematician, engineer and inventor because she is so very smart. Her family is moving away this summer and she unfortunately cannot go along. She will stay with her loving family while the Rimrock Humane Society searches for her new forever home.

Archimedes is very active and would love a large yard to play in and an attentive family who would want to keep her occupied. She loves to run, play chase, keep away, tug of war, and going after thrown balls or frisbees. (Not so great at bringing them back but, hey, she isn’t a retriever!) Although active, she can also be lazy and very lovey. Adores snuggling under her owner’s legs while they sit on the couch and watch TV. Archimedes has been an only dog but would LOVE to have a buddy to play with. Large dogs are great .. small dogs, cats & young children she would need to be supervised as she can play pretty rough. Also has a high prey drive as well. Her current family gives her long walks several times a week and also plays fetch with her daily.

Archimedes is all about the chase (hello Wolfhound) and if you were hiking and she saw a deer or some form of wildlife, she would go and not look back. Her owner says he believes she would run herself to death if she could. Archimedes spent a few weeks at Big Sky Dog Training and she learned sit, stay, heel, place, come, wait at doors, down (OFF), leave it and no. Also trained to an e-collar so the owner could have her off leash. Big Sky Dog Training says she was very smart and very athletic.

This girl will alarm bark at strange, non-normal noises and has an unhealthy obsession with reflected light and laser pointers which they have been working through and discouraging. Has been to the dog park and does just fine but does have some barrier aggression when on the other side of the fence. Has also shown that she will protect her food and chew toys from other dogs.
