How APA! describes Romeo:

He's happy, exuberant and "a smart cookie."

What APA! says about Romeo:

While Romeo is a big dog, he walks around easily with his Easy Walk harness. He is also a quick learner, having mastered the "sit" command after only three three tries.

Romeo can be excitable and may jump on people when he sees them. To help with this, he has started attending a play group, and will need someone to continue working on his manners and take him out for exercise. Also, all APA! adoptions come with free behavior assistance through APA!'s behavior team.

Why APA! says Romeo deserves your love:

If you have an active lifestyle and want to share it with a special four-legged partner, Romeo will steal your heart and be your friend until the end.
