My mom's friend gave her dog back to resccue, and since I've met him and can vouch for the wonderfully sweet boy he is, I thought I'd post him here to get a little more exposure. Romeo is probably almost three years old, neutered, up to date on shots, great with kids (my mom's friend has a 3 year old), and he lived with a toy poodle with no problems, and he's also fine with cats. Romeo and the poodle were crated separately during the day while my mom's friend was at work. She used to take him to a dog park (arg) but stopped when his method of play turned to grabbing other dogs by the neck and throwing them on the ground. My mom's friend's reason for giving Romeo back to the rescue is because Romeo is a very active boy and needs way more exercise and mental stimulation than she can give him. Romeo is very smart, and has been known to escape his crate at times, and get into things. Once he chewed up some Christmas decorations. He is well-behaved while people are home, although once he did thieve some pumpkin cake from the counter (the only thing he's ever counter-surfed for). Romeo LOVES pumpkin cake!
Here's his posting on Craigslist from the rescue he's with: http://washingtondc.craigslist.org/nva/ ... 08355.html
Pics! This is me with Romeo. He's very cuddly.
