MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 11/8/16
During his initial medical exam Romeo was slow moving and allowed all handling.
ENERGY LEVEL: Romeo displays a low activity level in the care center.
Romeo has shown no signs of aggression toward humans in the care center, but does best with a slow approach and time to warm up to his caretakers. We recommend experienced adopters who will provide that time and will allow Romeo to initiate interaction with new people.
