Dog of the Week: Romeo

Julia D Dog of the Week

Romeo is going to be THAT dog that just captures your heart! Romeo came to Last Hope from some pretty horrible conditions. He is a 12-year-old Doxiepoo (Dachshund/Poodle). Romeo has had to be introduced to being loved and seems to be taking to it very well. He does very well with other dogs in the home, he likes to follow and do as they do. He has also been around cats and does very well with them too. When Romeo came to us, he did not know how to be held, how to come to you, or how to play. He is warming up to being held but loves to snuggle with you in a chair. He is learning something every day and it is so fun to watch him, his eyes just sparkle. Romeo is happy to sleep with you in bed or go to a kennel that is soft and comfy. He does not go potty in his kennel or overnight. He is good to go outside and potty but is best with a band around him, he obviously was never taught to be potty trained and therefore needs to have someone willing to work with him or use the band. He is such a sweet dog and will make someone a great lap dog; whoever gets to call this dog theirs will fall in love with this sweet boy.

Romeo’s adoption fee is $200 which includes neuter surgery, being up to date on vaccinations, a microchip with lifetime registration, and a free obedience class.
