This dog's fosterhome is located in: ****Arkadelphia, AR****

This sweet boy named himself.  Upon meeting him, his foster mom said…”This little boy is a real lover, a Romeo.”  He is super sweet and affectionate, and soaks up love like a big sponge.  He is a bi-color boy with beautiful erect ears and a full tail that he wags constantly.  He is housebroken with a doggie door, and so far hasn’t shown any bad habits that need to be corrected.  When you pet him he closes his eyes and enjoys every minute of it.  He plays with the other young dogs in his foster home, and sometimes enjoys waking the humans up with a squeakly toy at 6 a.m.  (assuming you don’t get up ready to play!)  He came from a shelter in Jonesboro, Arkansas, and the volunteers went the extra mile to transport him to safety.  He is a young dog, probably between 1 and 2 years old, and weighs only 12 pounds.  He loves to play with toys, and go for fun rides in the car.  We haven’t tested him with kids, but he has such a docile, loving nature, we think he would be fine with children.  We would be happy to test him if we need to.  It’s always hard to understand why such a good dog can end up homeless, but you can change that, if you have just a little extra lap room for a boy named Romeo.  For more photos of him in his foster home,  click here:
