Romeo is one super dog. He is such a
lover and so sweet. He loves to play in his doggie pool and play with
his doggie room-mate in foster care. He was picked up as a stray in
Little Rock and rescued from Animal Services where he waited and waited
but no one came for him. He is about 1-2 years old, about 50-60 pounds
but a little underweight. He will most likely be about 60-70 pounds
when he fills out. He has been completely vetted and is now all ready
for his new home. He has the gorgeous lion mane like a Leonberger and
wonderful personality. He is just smaller than what you would see in
a full blooded Leo. He was extremely matted when he was rescued so
unfortunately, we had to shave his beautiful locks on his rear skirt
down to his skin. He feels much better but looks a little naked from
behind :0) His coat was so neglected, it could not be saved. Romeo
loves to play and is a fairly active boy. He is crate trained and uses
a doggie door at his foster home. He does not bark alot and responds
well to NO when he needs correction. He could easily knock over a smaller
child or toddler so he would do best in a home with older children.
He does seem to like canine company. We have not exposed him to cats
so it would be our best guess. He would most likely be ok with cats
if he was properly and slowly introduced. He does fairly well on a
leash but needs some one who can manage a larger dog.
The adoption fee is $125 and covers all necessary vet care to include: spay or neuter (mandatory - no exceptions), rabies, microchipping and registration, all vaccinations (including all puppy shots, rabies, adult boosters and Bordatella), grooming, Frontline for flea/tick preventative, heartworm check if age appropriate and preventative, collar and 50% of basic training classes.

All of our young and adult dogs require a 2 week home visit before finalizing the adoption process. This is to help ensure it is a good match for all involved without making a final commitment. Puppies are not available to go on home visits. All of our rescues are in private homes and not available to be visited outside of showing times. All of our foster homes work with our rescues to ensure they are crate trained and most are also housetrained. None of our foster homes have cats, so we can only make our best guess as to how our rescues would do with cats.
We rescue from high kill shelters and once accepted into our program, none of our rescues are euthanized. We provide for all their vet care, socialization and training until an appropriate home can be found. We rely solely on donations and are a 501(c)3 Humane Society. The only support we receive is from donations from the general public.
Thank you for your interest in rescue and in saving the life of a dog. Every day in the United States, 11,000 dogs die.
