Romeo in Carlisle, PA


You will never have to ask, “Where for art thou, my Romeo,” because this cute boy will never be far from your side! Romeo is a 1 1/2 year old, Black and Tan Cavalier who was surrendered to rescue when a family member developed an allergy. He was well cared for, and exhibits no health or behavioral issues.

Romeo is at his ideal weight of 12 pounds. He loves toys, and sometimes will take every toy out of the box before deciding which toy to play with. In his foster home, Romeo plays nicely with his similar age Cavalier brother, so he probably would be happiest in a home with a canine playmate.

Romeo enjoys his daily walks and walks well on a leash. He does have some mild separation anxiety and does not like to be left alone. He often barks if you leave the room. He is getting better with this, especially when he realizes that you will be returning. Romeo is fine around other dogs and children. He has not been tested around cats.

Crate training is a work in progress for Romeo. Despite having treats and toys in his crate, Romeo has not warmed up to spending time in there. He sleeps in his own little bed next to the big bed, but sometimes.ends up in the big bed by morning. Romeo is fully house trained and is dependable through the night.

Romeo is very good at letting you know what he wants. He might tap you with his paw if he wants to be pet or jump into your lap if he wants to be held. He has a special little bark that lets you know if you’re not giving him enough attention!

Because he does not like being left along, Romeo’s ideal family would have someone who is home most of the time. Also, someone who would spend time playing with him and walking him every day would be ideal. One or more canine companions would be perfect.

If you are looking for a Cavalier who wants nothing more than to sit in your lap, play with you or snuggle by your side, then Romeo would be a perfect match.
