ROMEO- pending

Golden Retriever, Mix

An adotable dog in West Milford, NJ

  • Young
  • Large
  • Male

Housebroken and crate trained Romeo arrived on November 9th. This 2 year old, 48 pound, handsome boy just loves people. That is why his name with us is Romeo. The adopter can change the name, he does not know it. He is white with golden highlights though his upper back and ears. He also has gold around his eyes. Romeo is very friendly and craves affection. He has good manners – not too pushy. He is a very sweet lovable boy. He knows sit and lay down commands but has a hard time with stay which probably has to do with being excited and adjusting to new surroundings. You can pet his head and sides of his face while he eats – I saw no food aggression. He just gets excited when he knows it is meal time. He gets so happy to see his bowl coming. If you look at the video, you can see how Romeo responded when meeting a 12 year old boy, he is good with kids. The leash was between his legs and he was still as sweet with his new friend. He is a sweet friendly boy. He loves to be outside in the fenced in yard and comes right away when called. Romeo has been fully vetted. He was neutered, heart-worm tested, parvo distemper shot, rabies shot, bordatella shot, dewormed etc. He is a great boy who is only missing a great home to call his own.

UPDATE: Romeo continues to earn my trust. He has free run of the house – he has not had any accidents and has not destroyed anything! He continues to be a sweet mush! He seems to understand the concept of things that ARE ok to chew, like his toys. With people he is just fine – he likes everyone and likes to play ball. He is a fun, sweet companion dog that will fit into a great family. He comes every time I call him and he sits right away. Still working on stay. I have asked him to wait patiently for his food, rather than all that excitement and he has already improved in just a couple of days. He is so very smart. This is a lovable guy that will melt your heart!

UPDATE: Romeo sleeps quietly in his crate at night (has done so since day one) he doesn't bark at all – he wiggles and wags when I come to let him out – he doesn't even bark when my son walks past to take his shower (about 20 minutes before I get up). I think that is impressive. He is very playful and this side of him is coming out more and more. He can play drop the ball and run for it by himself for hours while I work at my desk. He is warming up to my dogs, but can't handle them in a group yet. One at a time he is doing better. He is interested in our ferrets – he wants to play with them but is quite gentle when you hold one out to him to smell. He has also become desensitized to the many birds he shares a bedroom with. He was a little startled by their noises at first, but now takes it all in stride. He is not at all destructive – he has earned my trust and has the run of the house – even if I am in the shower or otherwise busy. Still living up to his name and giving lots of kisses. When meeting new dogs, Romeo needs a proper and gradual introduction. He is capable of getting along with others, as he is fostered with a couple of dogs, he just needs to trust them first.
