A volunteer writes: Adopted from us in May, and returned due to a heightened level of activity, Romeo is a gorgeous, playful, affectionate and smart little boy. We’re told he’s good with strangers, loves to go hiking and to the beach (gets car sick), likes to play with flip flops and paper such as tissues, has been good with kids, and takes a bath while getting some treats. Romeo’s adorable pink nose was looking up at me, his tail was wagging so how could I
resist this adorable guy? His leash manners are good, he chases birds and squirrels in the park, showed off his ‘sit’ and ‘paw’, takes treats gently, and stood up to drink some water from the water fountain. Ignoring dogs of all sizes that we passed, Romeo joined me on the park bench for some kisses and hugs, his long tongue giving my face a good washing! Romeo is still a puppy needing structure and positive reinforcement training to improve his manners. He’s shown he’s a smart boy, and since he likes treats should be easy to teach “good dog” behavior. It’s recommended that Romeo be adopted by an experienced person or family so that he learn to be everything he can be. The raw material is there, he just needs you to shape him. Love, training, and structure will make him the best companion ever.
Romeo is coming back to our shelter he was adopted here at ACC. He looks healthy and is easy going.
Romeo is good with strangers when entered the home, he is pretty relaxed when in his home, he follows you around in the house and he is very playful. He loves bones and you can actually grab the bone and play with him with it, you can also touch his food he doesn’t show any signs of aggression. Romeo picks and chooses on who he wants to play with when greeting Romeo goes straight to the nose not the back area. The previous owner has gotten him neutered, and he states after the surgery he has seen a lot of changes in him. He states that Romeo became a little bit more active. He became a little destructive in the home like grabbing toilet paper, tissue, or paper, flip flops. One main reason for bringing back is that Romeo had gotten a little
aggressive with the owners parents smaller dog. They were really good with one another for a few months and then they saw a little bit of changes in him like aggression with the small dog he has lunged at the small dog but wasn’t able to actually grab him because the owner grabbed him at the right time. Romeo has been really good with children and showed no signs of aggression. Romeo is used to taking baths, with treats he is calm. He also gets car sick. Romeo has also been on trips, hiking, beach etc and loves it. He behaves really well.
Romeo came in with treats, bones and toys. Commands: Sit, Paw, lay down. Responds to treats, Affectionate. Currently eating science diet Adult. Feedings twice a day
Recommendations: Merrick, wellness, Blue Buffalo, Natural Balance
Romeo came to the shelter as an owner surrender on 8/16/16. Owner stated that Romeo allows his food and bones to be touched and that Romeo can be destructive with household items. It is reported he knows the cues sit, paw, and lay down. Upon intake, Romeo was easy going and very sweet. On his relief walk, he pulled a bit. In the assessment room he appeared friendly and social. He jumped up on the assessor during Look, body loose and wiggly. For Sensitivity his body was soft, tail wagging, and he attempted to get closer to the assessor. He jumped up on the assessor high and hard during Tag. He did not pull back his paw on either Squeeze attempt. He kept a firm grip on the Toy, body not stiff, but required a treat to trade up. When off leash with other dogs, Romeo greets politely. He shows interest and displays some playful behavior (becomes a bit bouncy), but has the ultimate goal to mount. Romeo displays strong dog
reactivity on-leash (barking, pulling, vocalizes loudly). Due to his hard jumping and potential for guarding, The Behavior Team recommends that Romeo be placed in an Experienced home with no young children. He would benefit from an in depth interaction with any older children
in the home and from positive reinforcement training. Romeo will need daily physical exercise, such as walks and runs, and mental stimulation, such as Kongs and other puzzle toys.
Look: 1. Dog leans forward or jumps up to lick the Assessor’s face with tail wagging, ears back and eyes averted.
Sensitivity: 2. Dog displays high energy and movement, but it is directed toward getting closer to the Assessor. His body is soft, tail wagging.
Tag: 3. Dog is playful, jumps up on the assessor high and hard.
Squeeze 1/2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds.
Toy 1: 2. Dog takes toy away, keeps a firm hold. His body is between you and the toy, and he is loose and wiggly. He does require a treat to trade for the toy.
Dog to Dog: When off leash with other dogs, Romeo greets politely. He shows interest and displays some playful behavior (becomes a bit bouncy), but has the ultimate goal to mount.

A volunteer writes, Romeo oh Romeo indeed! This handsome head turner is hard to miss at the care center. Sporting mischevous eyes and a luxurious, speckled catahoula coat, puppy Romeo is front and center at his kennel door awaiting his turn to go out. Impossible to resist, this happy-go-lucky youngster does not disappoint!Energetic, silly and fun, Romeo is game for whatever you want to do. Ball? Toy? Walk? Doggy play date? Yes please! Surrendered with his equally lovely canine housemate Goddess, Romeo comes with the highest recommendations from his former owner. Friendly (indeed), house trained (yep!), affectionate (the BEST hugger!) and playful (did I mention ball?), lived with and was friendly with both a dog AND a cat (he’s amazing!), Romeo already has a long line of admirers at the care center and we all hope he has an equally long line
