About Romeo (west)

Pit Bull mix
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

ROMEO - A4164795 My name is ROMEO. I am a neutered male, tan and white American Pit Bull Terrier. The shelter staff think I am about 5 years old, and I have been at the shelter since Nov 04, 2018. Romeo is a fun pup who really, really enjoys booty scratches and belly rubs. Playing fetch is one of his favorite activities when outside. Romeo is CRATE TRAINED! He went in the volunteer room kennel with the kennel command and a hot dog thrown in. He laid down immediately and didn't make any noise. I left the room, and there was no one else in there. He remained laying down and quiet. We went to a quiet room with a rug and couch, and he played with a tennis ball, sought affection, and laid down and took a short nap. It seems he has lived in a house before. He didn't mark (pee) on anything inside the building. KIDS: He has good body control, and he didn't run into handler when playing and running in the yard. He may be a good family dog! He is big and goofy, so kids may get knocked over. Bring all the kids in to meet him. Other dogs his size: He was assessed prior to being neutered. He was overbearing and invasive with the other dogs (aka: He is rude and needs manners). He may do best with a tolerant dog that can teach him how to 'dog'. Bring your dog in for a safe meet and greet. Small dogs/cats: unknown. 'URGENT' If you have no breed restrictions, please call ASAP = 520-800-4633
