Arlington Pet of the Week: Romeo

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Romeo, a 10-year-old Havanese who is “a true gentleman,” except to Capulets.

Here’s what Romeo’s owner, Amy had to say about her star-crossed critter:

Romeo, a 10-year-old Havanese, has lived with his family in Arlington since he was just a puppy. His name was chosen by one of his owners, who was studying “Romeo and Juliet” in her high school English class at the time.

Romeo is a fun-loving dog who is well-loved by his neighbors (dog and human) and is friendly to all. Romeo is almost always happy, especially when on long walks or chewing the ears off his stuffed animals (once the ears are destroyed, he generally loses interest in the toy). The only times you’ll catch Romeo distressed are during thunderstorms, when he usually takes refuge under a bed or chair, and after his summer trim, when he feels embarrassed of his shorter cut. He sulks around for an hour or so before he remembers that we love him regardless.

Overall, Romeo is quite the family man and a true gentleman. When there was a new addition to the family, Romeo often brought the baby his toys and left them as an offering at her crib. He also regularly brings his food to the foot of the table and eats with the family. We couldn’t ask for a better pup.
