When Romo's person passed away, he was left behind with no place to go.

Romo is selective about his human friends and sometimes takes a little extra time to get to know you. But once he does, he will latch onto you as though he's afraid you might disappear like his mom did.

Romo was born in 2005, and he really loves people, though he needs a little work on his manners. His favorite activities include playing with toys and going to the dog park to play with more toys. He's very affectionate, and craves attention and excitement.

Romo does need to be an only dog and hopes you don't mind. He also has serious back leg issues, having cruciate surgery on both legs, and they are painful and not in great shape.

His memories take him back to the days of having a home sometimes. He wishes he could be there again. Do you think he could be yours?

Romo is part of our Single Pets* program! That means that he is eligible for a free flight home and waived adoption fee!

*Single pets do best as the only dog or cat in the home.
