Pet Profile Romeo:
My mother rescued Romeo from the shelter.
When my mother adopted him he weighed only five pounds and his coat was extremely matted, and long.
His fur hung way over his little eyes.
He was named Romeo because from the moment she picked him up and held him he snuggled into her, and full of love.
My mother could tell that Romeo had lived a hard life and appreciated being loved.
My mother has always loved dogs and has rescued all of her pets from shelters.
She has never had more than two at a time, usually just one so that she can give them the best lives possible, and plenty of love and attention.
Here is Romeo’s story:
My mother found Romeo at our local humane shelter six and a half years ago.
They both feel very fortunate having found each other and feel they are a perfect match.
My mother had always had large dogs however the little dogs were kept in the pen closest to the door at the humane shelter.
As soon as my mother entered, she locked eyes him immediately.
It was love at first sight so they visited in a separate room to get to know each other.
Romeo Going Home:
Romeo could not be taken home that day because he had a kennel cough.
He was put on medicine for 10 days and then was finally able to go to his forever home.
My mother immediately took Romeo to be groomed.
Romeo and his brother Benvolio are loved beyond words.
Incredibly spoiled, as all furbabies should be.
They sleep with my mother in a comfy warm bed every night.
If only all animals could be so fortunate to have a blessed life.
20 Facts About Romeo:
1. He weighs 12 pounds and is very squishy and wonderful to cuddle with.
5. Romeo likes to lay in the hallway at the top of the steps where he can watch all the action.
6. He keeps a close eye on the cat, Toonces, and will gently headbutt him to show him who’s boss.
7. He has to “make his bed” and have his blankets just right before he lays on them. He was taught this by his mama, Scout, my mother’s Boston Terrier who sadly passed away after eating a mushroom.
8. He loves massages and coos with approval and gratitude.
9. Romeo is the watchdog of the household and much of the time is looking out the windows, watching for questionable humans and animals.
10. Romeo has issues with the postal carrier.
He waits for him to come and he must be let outside to run alongside the entire length of the fenced yard so he can chase and bark at him. He watches for him every day and knows when he is coming.
15. Romeo has two black dots on his tiny, little brown nose.
19. He is highly protective of his treats. He looks around to be sure his brother is not watching, then he runs up the stairs to the bedroom so that he can savor it alone.
20. He is very jealous of the cats, especially Preston, whom he torments regularly. The cats spend most of their time downstairs in the finished basement as that is their domain. Given the chance, Romeo races down there to stir things up.
