My mother rescued Romeo from the shelter. When my mother adopted Romeo he weighed only five pounds and his coat was extremely matted, and long. His fur hung way over his little eyes. 

He was named Romeo because from the moment she picked him up and held him he snuggled into her, and full of love. My mother could tell that Romeo had lived a hard life and appreciated being loved. 

My mother has always loved dogs, and has rescued all of her pets from shelters, never having more than two at a time, usually just one, so that she can give them the best lives possible, and plenty of love and attention.

Here is Romeo’s story:

I was found at my local humane shelter by my current owner six and a half years
ago.  We both feel very fortunate having found each other and feel we
are a perfect match for each other.  My owner feels she has found a
perfect companion and I feel the same.   

I know my owner previously had
always favored big dogs, such as golden retrievers but fortunately for
me, she decided to look for a little dog.  

The “little” dogs at the
humane shelter were kept in the pen closest to the door so that when my
owner entered, we locked eyes on each other immediately. It was love at
first sight and my owner took me to a separate room so we could get to
know each other.  
I couldn’t leave with her that day because I had
kennel cough but after being seen by the veterinarian and put on
medicine for 10 days, my owner was finally able to come and get me. She
took me immediately to be groomed, something I needed desperately having
been “on the streets” on my own for many, many days.    

I have now had my forever home and get almost daily
walks, good food and a lot of love. I have a very good soft place to
sleep since I sleep with my owner.  I feel we were meant to be together,
even though I started out with someone else.  If only all animals could
be so fortunate to have a blessed life.
