The Romeo we are highlighting in this week’s Tuesday’s Tails doesn’t know that his namesake is one of the most beloved characters William Shakespeare ever created. What concerns this Romeo most, is finding the one special person who will make him a cherished pet and give him a home of his own.
Romeo is a handsome 9 month-old Border Collie/Lab mix who is as high energy as he is smart. Romeo was rescued by Heaven Can Wait Animal Society in Las Vegas and is currently enrolled in our Pups on Parole program. His inmate handler says he is quickly learning all of his basic obedience commands.
Like all of the dogs in Pups on Parole, Romeo gets two 30 minute walks each day and another 45 minutes of playtime with the other dogs in the program. Since Romeo still has energy at the end of the day, his handler taught him how to run on a treadmill to burn off extra fuel. A pretty smart trick for a puppy to learn…right?
Romeo loves everyone and would make a good addition for an active family. If you’re a runner, Romeo would love to be by your side helping you train. He would also be a great candidate for a dog agility team, if your interests lie in that hobby.
Romeo has learned clicker training and his eagerness to please could lead him toward advanced training and maybe even a service dog.
If you’d like to meet Romeo you can find him with a bright yellow tennis ball in his mouth at Heaven Can Wait adoptions each Saturday or on the website: www.hcws.org. For more details please contact the dog coordinator at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please share Romeo’s story so this happy, intelligent puppy can find the home he deserves.
