Romeo is a truly beautiful purebred All-American Mutt! That is to say, he’s a complete mixed breed - made up of Collie, Chow Chow, and German Shepherd, along with a splash of other mutts! Romeo lives with his doting owner, Becca, where he is a beloved family pet and spoiled to the moon and back. Romeo loves to relax with his owner, and keep an eye out as things are done around the house, like decorating for Christmas!
Romeo’s life may sound like the one every dog dreams of, full of love and joy, but his life wasn’t always that way. In fact, the start of Romeo’s life was rather sad and depressing. During his first few years, Romeo found himself abandoned and left to fight for his life. He spent a year struggling to survive on the streets.
With nowhere to call home and no end in sight for his torturous time on the street, he began to give up hope. His health began to decline, and he was beginning to have a difficult time scrounging together enough food as his time on the streets wore on. Luckily for him, that would all change one day when The Dog Liberator found Romeo and rescued him.
When Romeo was saved, he was suffering from a severe case of mange, eye and ear infections, and he was severely underweight. It was a long fight to get him healthy again, but finally, he was robust enough to start the search for a forever home. For two years, Romeo languished in a foster home. He was an outsider, beloved by his foster family, but not truly one of the family.
Two years after entering foster care, Becca came across Romeo. She decided to adopt him, knowing that he needed her. It wasn’t love at first sight, and she wasn’t sure what would happen, but she knew that he needed someone to take a chance on him. On his first day home, she took him to the park where they played for hours. When they returned home, he fell asleep on the sofa with his head in her lap, and she knew right then and there that she had made the right decision.
Ever since Romeo went home with Becca, his life has been full of love and trust; he’s completely lost any reason to fear. This stray dog who had suffered so severely on the streets, just needed someone to take a chance on him. When someone did, his life went from a sad tale of neglect to the joyful tale of a dog who got the rescue he so greatly deserved.
