Hi my name is Romulus and I am a 2 year old Staffordshire Terrier. I am a big gorgeous boy that loves to be with my humans! I weigh about 70 pounds and am strong and athletic. I love to go for walks and to run around in the back yard. I am great at playing fetch and I also love other dogs. I am big but I am goofy and submissive. Every time my foster mom brings me my breakfast or dinner I do a happy dance! I also like to play with the puppy next door through the fence because he is so sweet! I am full of love and I can't wait to find the perfect family for me!

My foster mom thinks I should go to a cat-free house because it is just too tempting to chase them! I can be tested further if someone is interested who already has kitties! I absolutely adore children! My foster mom has an 8 year old niece and a 10 year old nephew and I could play with them all day! I have been around small children and I love them but my foster mom thinks I might knock small children down on accident... I lack a bit of confidence so I am looking for a confident family to adopt me. I would do best in a home with another confident dog. I love to play with my foster siblings both male and female! I have a bit of separation anxiety so it would be great to have a companion while my people are gone.

When I first arrived at my foster home I was a bit nervous but over time I have come a long way. My profile is constantly changing for the better as I gain more confidence and meet more people!

Before FCHS took me in I was tied to a tree my whole life. I was heartworm positive but luckily I had a wonderful family sponsor my treatment so today I am heartworm free! I am neutered and up to date on vaccinations. I am also micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $225! If you have any questions about me please contact my foster mom at

About Franklin County Humane Society

About Our Rescue Group...

FCHS is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization comprised entirely of volunteers from Franklin County and throughout the state and country. It was formed in 2002 to help solve the problem of unwanted dogs and cats in this region. Its long-term goal is to build an animal shelter where area pets can find safe refuge until they can be adopted to permanent homes. Its immediate goals are to develop a strong foster program to remove adoptable animals from the Franklin County Animal Control facility and to decrease the number of unwanted dogs and cats in Franklin/North Wake counties through spay/neuter public education programs

Our Adoption Process...

1.After you find A Dog or Cat, review the description of the foster you are interested in to make sure that the information we have fits with your particular needs and desires. In most cases, the information on the website is current and gives the information that we have about the particular foster. The picture of the foster does not tell the whole story.

2.Complete the adoption application. Please make sure that you give us as much information about yourself as you can. List all animals currently living with you including other dogs, cats, birds, reptiles and rodents. The application needs to be complete in order to help us determine if the foster you have chosen is a good match for your home. has the applications. This is step one.

3.Once the application is submitted you will usually receive an email letting you know if the foster would be a good match for you and making arrangements for you to meet the dog at one of our adoption events. Sometimes a foster is best shown at the foster home due to his or her personality. We will let you know where the foster home is and arrange a time that works both for you and the foster home.We do require that everyone who will live with the foster to come and meet them. There is a chance we may tell you that the foster you are interested in is not a good match and may suggest another foster.

4.If, after meeting the foster you decide you would like to adopt him or her, a home visit will be scheduled. Someone from the Franklin County Humane Society will call and do the visit. The foster does not come on the home visit. Home visits are required before any foster leaves our program.

5.If more than one person applies and meets the same foster, all things being equal, we go in the order the applications were received.

6.Once the home visit has been completed, you will be asked to complete an adoption agreement. Please read the agreement carefully to make sure that you understand what you will be agreeing to.

7.An adoption fee of $250 for dogs under 6 months $225 for 6 months and older and $95 for cats, Senior Cats $50. This fee helps us to provide the necessary medical care and other needs for the fosters while in foster care. All FCHS fosters are altered, current on shots, micro chipped, and to our knowledge, in good health before they are adopted out. We are all volunteers and as such receive no monetary compensation for our work with the fosters. The adoption fee is used to help defray costs in the rescue and care of the fosters.

8.Congratulations! You are on your way to having you new furry companion. We hope that you and your new companion share a life of love and happiness. We welcome any comments you may wish to give us about your foster at any time.
