Regal-looking and loyal, this handsome guy will be your faithful companion! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Romulus, a 4 years old German Shepherd from Washoe Valley, Nevada. This pooch is neutered, up to date on his shots, and knows basic commands. Romulus gets along with other dogs but needs a home without cats or young children in the family.

Romulus’ Tale

If your idea of a perfect dog is a social butterfly and a cuddle bug, Romulus is not your guy. He doesn’t thrive in crowds and isn’t going to be asking for belly rubs every five minutes or so. However, if you want an intelligent, alert, driven companion that will respond to your calm and assertive energy, you and Romulus will hit it off from the start. A definition of a working Shepherd, Romulus has the drive to work and use his brain productively and will need an experienced adopter who will know how to help him spend all of his energy productively. He has gone through foundation layer training and knows basic commands which he can build upon with the right person. When he’s not “on the job”, this doggo shows his silly and goofy side: he loves playing with balls, digging in the dirt, and most of all- splashing around in the water (kiddie pools are his favorite thing in the world).

Romulus can get along with other dogs as long as they are a match for his personality, but needs a family without kitties (sorry felines!) and would do best in a household without children. His ideal home would be with a single active owner or a couple dedicated to their energetic and smart pet. If you think you fit the bill and Romulus could blossom by your side, contact Canine Rehabilitation Center and Sanctuary for more information about him and the adoption process.
