Romeo lives up to his name. He'll win you over with his loving nature. He loves meeting new people and other dogs. He’s quiet and even tempered. He looks so statuesque when he calmly sits observing what goes on around him. He knows a few commands and is eager to please for a treat, which he takes very politely from your hand. Once he warms up to you he likes to cuddle in your lap and try and sneak a kiss.

He was most likely never leash trained and will need some patience to get him there.

Romeo was given up by his owner and ended up in a southwestern Virginia shelter.
