Meet adorable Romeo. Romeo was born around July 23, 2016. Although size is just a guess, we believe he will grow to be in the medium range as an adult, but on the smaller side of medium. We do not feel he will get over 30 or 35 pounds. Mom was a long haired Pekingese mix about 18 pounds, but we do not know who dad was. He came from a shelter in Kentucky along with mom and siblings. Mom and 5 siblings went to another group and we took these two as it was too much for mom.
Romeo is a super sweet puppy, and very friendly. Very happy with tail wagging. He loves to snuggle and is happy laying on the couch with you while napping. He and his brother Milo are very good pups and super smart. They are in an xpen at night and don't bark or cry during the night. They are really good about using the pee pads indoors, but if taken outside right after they wake up they will pee right away. They generally will come when asked, which given they are so young is really good. He is fabulous with other dogs, loves other dogs, fine with cats. They are fabulous with kids, and enjoy running around the back yard. We feel a home without small children would be best given how small he is unless your children have grown up with dogs.
A home where someone isn't not gone all day would be best for this puppy. Puppies need a family who will have time to continue with house training and socialization. Keeping a puppy crated all day while your at work is not good for a puppy.
At night when dogs sleep, their body systems and elimination slow down. This is why they can go all night without eliminating once they’re old enough to have sufficient bladder and bowel control. But during the day, neither puppies nor adult dogs should be crated for more than four or five hours at a time. When crating a puppy for more than two hours, it’s best to provide water by attaching a water bottle dispenser to the crate. (Using a bowl can create a mess.) Follow these daytime duration guidelines to avoid compromising your dog’s well-being or causing behavior problems:
Age Maximum time in crate
8-10 weeks 1-2 hours
11-14 weeks 1-3 hours
15-16 weeks 1-4 hours
17+ weeks 415 hours
Romeo is being fostered in a North Aurora, IL home, with his brother Milo which is where you and your family would go to meet her. All family members, including 4-legged, must be present at the meet and greet to adopt. In order to schedule a meet and greet, please submit and adoption application which can be found on-line at http://angelsonwheels.org/canine-adoption-application/ Once we receive the application we will process. It does take some time, so please be patient. Thank you. For additional information about our adoption process, please go to our website at angelsonwheels.org and click on the "adoptable" tab.
Submitting an application does not commit you to any animal, but is required prior to making arrangements for a meet and greet as all of our animals are cared for in homes. We can't schedule meet and greets until the application is submitted and approved. We don't have a building so there are no viewing hours. All of our animals are cared for in foster homes by wonderful families who volunteer their time to save these precious souls. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
The adoption fee of $350.00 includes:
Spaying when he's old enough through one of our participating vets
Dewormed with panacur, repeated about 2 weeks later
Monthly Heartworm Preventative while in our care
Monthly Flea Prevenative while in our care
Up to date with DHPP puppy vaccination
Rabies Vaccination if over 4 months
This puppy is too young to be fixed. So you will receive a spay/neuter coupon to one of our participating vets to have that procedure done when old enough. There is fully refundable $100.00 spay/neuter deposit. We hold the check, and do not cash it. Once the puppy is fixed, you email us and we will void your check. The foster will explain that in more detail at the meet and greet.
You will also receive a free health exam visit to either Crest Hill Cat and Dog Clinic, Yorkville Animal Hospital, Midwest Animal Hospital in Orland Park, Springbrook Animal Hospital,Countryside Animal Clinic of Carol Streatm or Naperville Animal Hospital.
Although we make the best guess on the breed and size of our dogs, because they come from shelters or are strays, we can never be completely certain of the genetic makeup of the dog. Breed and weight at maturity are only guesses. All we can tell you for sure is that they are 100% RESCUED! If an animal is still posted for adoption, he/she is still available. If you see this this post, this puppy is available for adoption so there is no need to email asking about availability.
Thank you for looking at our rescued animals!
