2824 ~ Romeo

ID #: 2824 Age: 13 yrs Gender: male Status: available

O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?

Hey, I’m over here laying on the couch.  I didn’t hear you at first because I’m going a little deaf but I can still hear enough to know you were quoting Shakespeare.   Keep doing it…I love that play.  Oh, hi everyone, I was just having some fun with my fabulous foster mom.  Let me introduce myself!  My name is Romeo, as you might have guessed by now, and I’m 13 years young.  My foster mom says I act like a six-year-old and that may be.  I really don’t know from age ~ I just live in the moment and the moment is good, particularly since I met the good folks at Golden Rescue.  Apart from my poor hearing, I’m just a typical goofy Golden albeit a senior statesman goofy Golden.  I’m pretty healthy for my age ~ a little stiff in the morning and jumping in the car is getting hard, but hey, I’m still a good walker, runner…loving my exercise.  I also love playing with my ball and I have this proud prancing move I do up and down the hall like a well-trained pony.  Speaking of training, I know my stuff.  After all, I’ve been around the block a time or two.  I love people and kids.  I’m okay with some dogs but with some dogs, I can be aggressive, so you just have to be aware.  If I take on that stalking pose, then you know I might not like the dog I’m looking at and therefore you should divert me.  It’s not a huge problem because many dogs are fine but some just get my hackles up and I don’t know why.  Other than that, my needs are small.  You can leave me alone if you have to go out without me.  Loud noises don’t bother me and I don’t need any special medical attention.  My lovely foster family describe me as a sweet, loving, happy, and gentle boy.  Pretty nice, eh?  Well, I’m off to find Juliet… What light in yonder window breaks.  It is the east and Juliet is the sun.

That Shakespeare guy sure had a way with words.

Romeo is currently being fostered in the Toronto, ON area.  If you would like more information about Romeo please call our hot-line toll free at 1-866-712-8444 or email and one of our volunteers will be happy to return your call.
