Romeo's Story...

 

Fostered in Baltimore, MD
5/11- Hi All-My name is Romeo. I was named this because I truly am a lover boy. I am 10 months old, and about 25lbs. I am still growing. The vet thinks I have some Shar Pei in me too.  I came from a high kill shelter in SC. MMR rescued me right before my time was up. Once I was brought to MD, they vetted me and found out I am heartworm positive-a very treatable problem. Heartworm is caused by flees, and their larvae. The eggs hatch and worms form on the heart muscle. With simple heartworm preventative, this could have been avoided. So I just had my first HW treatment, and will be neutered shortly after that last treatment is done. I am sweet, great with other dogs, and love to lay in your lap. I hope you'll consider me as your next couch companion, and will still consider me even with my heartworm. HW is NOT contagious and very treatable. 
My adoption fee includes the cost of routine vetting, my neuter,  HW treatment, and microchip.

My adoption fee is $325

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Romeo, a Rockville Rhodesian Ridgeback dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Rhodesian Ridgeback for sale in Rockville, or seeking a Rhodesian Ridgeback dog from a breeder in Rockville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Rockville already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Rockville breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Rhodesian Ridgeback breeders who help with Rhodesian Ridgeback rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Rockville paves the way for another one to be saved.
