Romeo – Chocolate Male, 3 years old, 85lbs

“Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?” Why I am right here, waiting for you! I am a hunky chocolate Labrador sweetie in search of a forever family to love with all my heart. My life was not always so sweet…banished to the backyard, always on the outside looking in, the loneliness got so bad I did not think it could get worse, but then they took me for a ride and left me a local high-kill shelter. Oh boy was I sad, but little did I know my story was about to take a turn for the better. A really nice lady walked over to me in my sad little prison, opened the door, gave me soft pet, and together, we left that awful place and my real life began! I am loving life in my foster home. My tail wags all the time, I can’t stop smiling, my paws won’t stop dancing – could it be a dream? And my foster mom tells me it will only get better once I find my forever family – wow!

“My bounty is as boundless as the sea, My love as deep; the more I give to thee, The more I have, for both are infinite.” As my first few years of life were quite lonely and sad, I have a lot of pent-up love to give – after all, the more love you give, the more love you get! I crave affection, touch, and absolutely love to be right by your side. Tennis balls – pfffft who needs them.  Chewy toys – no thank you, I would rather snuggle. My favorite thing to do is sit next to you and get my ears rubbed. Treats – nah…oh wait a minute, I do really love a doggie biscuit! In fact, I do the cutest little dance with my front paws when the doggie cookie jar comes out – my foster mom calls me “Happy Feet”! I am a well-mannered gentleman; house-trained, crate-trained, friendly with all dogs big or small, good with kids, and all-around super sweet manners!

Oh how sweet Romeo simply longs for a family to call his own! This darling hunk of chocolate is a perfect match for someone who is home frequently and who is looking for an affectionate companion to share their days (and nights!) with. Romeo is great with other dogs and kids, but he has not met a cat yet, so we are not sure about his feline-compatibility. Romeo is a total lover boy who wants nothing more than to love and be loved – the perfect Valentine today and everyday of the year <3 If you are interested in making Romeo a member of your family forever, apply today at!
