Update on Amazing Archie- he is feeling much better now!
2nd UPDATE OF ARCHIE :
After spending 1 week at the animal hospital, Archie was brought to Animal Clinic Jakarta. We decided to shave off his hair because the inside of his fur was all tangled, dirty and sticky.As you can see in the pictures Archie is very skinny and he also needs treatment for his skin.He is making progress daily though so we are very happy about that!
He has settled very fast at ACJ and loves to interact with the other dogs!

first day after rescue day 2 after rescue
This is the story of Archie, a young male terrier who fought very hard for 7 weeks to stay alive. JAAN received a report on Sept 2, 2012 about a dog that was roaming around 7 Eleven in Tebet with his back legs tied tightly. The report came
with pictures and information since the person who reported took the initiative to ask around and to take pictures of the location and surroundings. He told us that Archie had been there for about 6 weeks hiding in the gutter and that he would come out after 11 PM. So our first attempt was last Thursday night. Our team went out there and waited from 10.00 till 01.00 , but no dog. Then 1 of our team members searched in the gutter with a flashlight, but no dog. Then at 01.30 after searching the whole area we decided to go home and try again the following day. After several rescue attempt our team finally managed to rescue Archie Monday morning at 02.00 !! Archie was thoroughly checked this morning, and of course the rope was removed from his legs (he started wagging his tail ones the rope was off!!) . He is severely dehydrated, malnourished and weak. Looks like he is just so exhausted of fighting hard to stay alive.He is full of fleas, ticks, has a bad skin and his back legs have been cut to the bone by the tight rope. The skin is starting to rot and it is hard to describe the bad smell…maybe the best way to describe it is that it smells like dead rats…..We have high hopes that Archie will pull through and that we can give him a second chance in life!! Archie has lived in the gutter for weeks next to a very busy road not being able to move around properly because his back legs were tied….It is shocking what this poor boy has been through and AMAZING that he survived! JAAN is going to give it their all to put Archie back on his feed and to eventually find him a loving home!
