Puppy meets Lover Boy

Romeo is the perfect name for this young German Shepherd Lab mix. He is quite outgoing and affectionate, and a true charmer. So far he has brought a ton of joy and affection to his new foster home.

This sweetheart is crate trained in all respects, as he sleeps through the night and while his foster mom is out working. He walks great on a leash, and has learned to sit, lay on his bed, and lay down. His manners at crosswalks has also improved and he is now able to sit despite being at a distracting intersection. 

With regard to his cat friendiness, he is a little too excited for the cat in his foster home, so foster mom is taking her time introducing them to each other. So far there is no prey drive towards the cat. In fact when the cat walks into the room, Romeo gets behind his foster mom's legs immediately with tail wagging and a play stance. The resident cat and Romeo have come to within a foot of each other, and it went very well. Foster mom has no hesitation about introducing them as the time is right. At present he is considered cat friendly.

Romeo's rating is unique in that he still has some puppy power in him to liven things up, and he is also a couch potato and eager to please his owner. He will find ways to entertain himelf with toys and his kong while you are busy. Though it should be noted, the puppy power has gotten him into some curious situations with treats left out, a wooden ruler he decided to use as a stick, and some other goofy things like kleenex boxes...

Thus far, all interactions with other dogs have been great. He takes correction and is appropriately playful. He is on the excited side in his interactions with people and is in the refining process now that he has learned some commands. He prefers to jump up and lick faces, which he is learning is not the best way to introduce himself ;-)

He will make a lovely addition to the right furever home!For recent pictures of Romeo, click here
