My Story

Romeo is sure to live up to his name and he will quickly melt your heart with his stunning good looks and pensive eyes. Romeo is a loveable, handsome, young Pyr boy who is loving the good life in his wonderful foster home. He loves to go for walks (he currently walks with two other dogs at a time), he is house trained, and crate trained. Romeo loves to cuddle up with his humans once he’s given time to warm up and get to know them. He loves to play with his toys and playing in the backyard with his canine companions. He loves cats and they really love him - they all enjoy rubbing on him :) Romeo does well meeting new people. We don’t know if he’s ever lived with children, but we think his sweet temperament would do just fine with older, more gentle kids. Romeo takes a bit of time to warm up to new environments but he’s doing so well overcoming his past fears. He can be protective of his food around other dogs, so he should be fed separately, but that's not an issue since Romeo runs to his crate when he knows it's meal time :) He does love his dog pals though, so another dog to play with in his home would be a must! Romeo is easy going, happy to be inside with you working, or hanging outside with his dog friends. He is looking for a loving and patient family to make very happy...if Romeo sounds like your kind of guy, apply today!

NYS Registered Rescue # RR102

Our goal is to assess every application on its own merits. Key considerations are: 1) the experience of the applicant with large breed dogs 2) children in the household or regularly visiting the household are ready for a large-breed dog who is a guardian by nature and 3) the sex of other dogs currently residing in the household to avoid same-sex aggression issues. For puppies under six months old, the applicant’s ability to socialize the puppy with older dogs is a priority.
