But now, after 125 performances, he's finally ready to move on, according to the ballet's artistic director, Misha Djuric.
So the ballet is looking for a new dog to replace Archie and will be holding auditions on Dec. 2 at its studios in Providence, Rhode Island.
Interested? The company wants a pup with an "elegant prance," a "regal coat of fur" and a "charming smile," the press release states.
As for Archie, he's looking forward to "settling down to a life of luxury and long naps on pillows," his owner said.
