Adoptable Dog of the Week – Romulus

Smart, energetic, and driven- this dashing doggo is looking to be someone’s most loyal companion! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Romulus, a 3 years old German Shepherd from Washoe Valley, Nevada. This young and energetic pooch is neutered and up to date on his shots. Romulus gets along with other well-behaved dogs but needs to go into an adult-only, feline-free home.

Romulus’ Tale

Romulus is a smart, driven pooch that makes an ideal match for an experienced adopter. He requires an environment that could provide him structure and someone who is calm yet has a firm hand. Romulus wants a leader and someone he can be a companion to, a fellow adventurer that will keep up with him. In return, he’ll show you loyalty that knows no bounds- he’s not big on snuggling, but he is affectionate.

As a working breed, Romulus has the drive to be on the job and perform tasks, but he also has a silly, playful side to him. He adores playing ball, digging in the snow, and being in the water- in fact, splashing around might just be his favorite thing in the world. If you have a kiddie pool or even just a garden hose, you’re in a good position to become Romulus’ new bestie.

Romulus is a friendly, well-behaved dog but he’s not a social butterfly: he’ll prefer being in a family and a home where he has enough space and he’s away from the crowds and congested city neighborhoods. He gets along with other dogs just fine, but he’s not that good with cats. His rescuers recommend that he go to an adult-only home, due to his size and energy levels. He is leash trained and knows basic commands – with the right person, he could learn so much more.

In case that Romulus sounds like the perfect dog for your family, contact Canine Rehabilitation Center and Sanctuary for more information about the adoption process.
