Named by the “village” that helped to save him our Romeo was a total mess. The people of the community watched him day in and day out scavenging for food, but staying distant. He had an embedded collar and it was badly infected. Our vet said this was one of the worst embedded collars they had seen. This poor dog was so sick from infection that finally capturing him was a matter of him no longer having the strength to run. But, once captured, it was as if he was thankful they had him!
Romeo has been treated and is currently on the mend. He’s learning how much love and attention humans can give and he’s responding in thankful kindness. He’s been fully brought Current on vaccines, neutered, microchipped and fully treated in preparing for a home. Still with our vet in North Carolina he’s being posted so that we can find his family and have him sent home once mended.
It’s beautiful, loving, sweet and still a bit shy….but warms up quickly to love and patience. This is a dog that was likely in a home before being left on his own. He’s still young, maybe between 1-2 years old and so handsome. Once his beautiful coat comes back in around his neck he will be even more good looking!
