My story

If you’re into classic punk rock, then you know The Ramones, the first true punk rock group. Well, not only is our Ramone such a big fan that he named himself after the band, but he’s a bit of trailblazer himself. Well, I guess what I mean by that is that he’s blazing a trail all around PACC, stealing hearts and gaining as many fans as The Ramones themselves!

Ramone is a shelter long timer and not one of his staff and volunteer friends can understand why. This big baby wants nothing more than to snuggle, cuddle and climb in your lap for love if you’ll let him. He prefers affection over anything else and will be the best snuggler in his forever home! He calls little spoon!

When meeting other dogs in playgroup, Ramone was appropriate and tolerant with greetings, and was social and happy to see the other pups. He’d like to meet any resident dogs before moving in to make sure it’s a good fit and that they have compatible musical tastes. What if they hate punk rock?? He also seems to prefer calmer, gentler playmates.

“Ramone is showing so much of his personality - all good! He loves to run after the ball and loves to sit on my lap. He thinks he is a lap dog for sure and gives kisses too. He enjoys sniffing and taking his time on walks. This boy is a wonderful dog.”- PACC volunteer



“Ramone is a favorite of mine. I look forward to walking him and spending time sitting on a bench giving him some love. Ramone is easy to leash and walks calmly. He has great eye contact and checks in with you often. He likes to take different paths for his walk. I vary our routes for him, and he enjoys sniffing around. In the yard, he likes to get lots of affection and enjoys the freedom of not having a leash on. This boy is a very kind and loving dog.”- PACC volunteer



“This special boy has really grown on me. He’s such a gentle, kind, and sensitive soul. Ramone thrives on cuddles and is happiest just sitting down in the grass and getting lots of pets and just being as close to you as possible. He is very housebroken and can barely get outside to take care of business. Ramone is sensitive and the shelter is pretty overwhelming to him. Ramone shares a kennel politely with a young, rowdy female and has had other kennelmates and has attended playgroup. Ramone has soulful eyes that will melt your heart and make you fall in love. He leashes up beautifully and walks gently on leash. He enjoys treats but probably loves cu
