Meet Romeo! (petfinder page here… http://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/20504399 )
Romeo is a 6lb, 7 year old Chihuahua in search of a home to call his very own. He was rescued by the Sadie Mae Foundation, from a local kill shelter and is currently residing in a foster home.
Romeo’s foster mom thinks he is just wonderful. He loves to sleep under the covers at night (he isn’t enjoying the cold weather — brrr!). He loves to go for walks and car rides and also play with this tiny stuffed animals.
Romeo is fearful of new people and sometime objects (i.e. very afraid of dog crates). He will shake and try to retreat. If he is cornered, he will bite. Luckily he is small and can’t do much damage!
Romeo’s foster mom has been working with him for months now and he has come a long way. She recommends Romeo go to a dog experienced home with a lot of patience. Romeo needs you to build up trust with him.
Romeo gets along great with kitties and other dogs.
Romeo is 99% housetrained. On occasion he will have an accident in the house. You just need to make sure he goes out frequently (he won’t tell you when he needs to go, and he has a tiny, tiny bladder!) and everything will be just fine. If he does have an accident, he’s tiny and so there isn’t all that much to clean up.
Romeo is one of those rescue dogs that just steals your heart when you meet him. His foster mom has had many visitors over to the house and even those that say they aren’t ‘small dog people’ fall in love with him. There is something about him that just tugs at your heartstrings.
Fill-out an online adoption application via www.sadiemaefoundation.org. $300 adoption donation, reference check and home visit are required prior to adoption.
While in the care of the Sadie Mae Foundation, all animals are fully vaccinated, heart worm tested and spayed or neutered. Other medical treatments may be provided to our animals, depending upon their specific needs.
Info. about Sadie Mae Foundation’s adoption process Please note that we do not ship animals or do same-day adoptions. Additionally, we ordinarily limit adoptions to homes within CT or no more than an hour or so drive from Hartford, CT in order to be able to conduct a home visit and provide follow-up assistance when necessary. Exceptions are considered on a case-by-case basis.
We try to make our adoption process as easy and painless as possible, but please understand where we are coming from and all of the work that goes into rescuing and rehoming homeless animals. We don’t want them to go through this again. Visit www.sadiemaefoundation.org to learn about the adoption process in detail.
