FOSTER or ADOPT! A big baby! Romeo is 9 months old and already 80 pounds. This magnificent pup was incredibly abandoned by his owner at his groomer. Romeo is very smart, knows commands, is housetrained, energetic and cuddly, loves to be close. He is quiet, has reportedly barked a few times when a stranger approached the front door, but he happily greets everyone on his walks and loves to be pet. He is fine with cats--- cowers in their presence, and gets along well with other dogs...just wants to play! We suggest older kids since his size and enthusiasm can overwhelm small ones and small ones can leave a door or gate open and Romeo will bolt. We are looking for an experienced big dog adopter who has a fenced yard where Romeo can romp. We will REDUCE his adoption fee with enrollment and graduation from a training course (like Petco). Home visit and vet references required. Ask for more pics. Pls fill out a foster or adoption form on www.crisisdogsnc.or This is an extraordinary pup. We will transport to an approved home. This is a 'gun shy' hound who is scared of loud noise, not a hunting dog.
