Affectionate loving boy needs lots of time and understanding
Romeo is an eight year old Jack Russell crossed with an American Cocker Spaniel, a handsome and affectionate boy who is desperate for a kind human to call his own. Every now and then we have the heart breaking task of having to take in pets when their owners have been taken ill and can no longer care their loved animals. On these occasions we often have to enter a property without the owners being present and it can be tricky getting in the house when a dog inside sees you as an intruder. When we arrived to collect Romeo we found him sitting right behind the front door. A little daunting but we need not have worried as we were met with a bundle of joyous tail wagging, kisses and a toy.
Romeo has clearly been dearly loved. He is house trained and friendly although a little boisterous when excited. He generally ignores other animals but has not been well socialised so although we do not feel that he will have any issues with either dogs cats or children we are looking for a home with no cats and older children only. Romeo has been used to visiting children as young as three years so a couple with grandchildren may work.
He is a terrier cross spaniel so will need lots of exercise to keep his figure in trim. As Romeo has always been walked on a lead he will need further training with his recall and great care should be taken before allowing him off lead. Sadly this boy is missing his former owner greatly and needs a family who will give him lots of time and understanding as he tends to bond with one person and pines if that person is out of sight. We can give lots of advice on how to settle him into his new home and avoid the potential for separation anxiety.
