Romeo, 2, is a neutered male, chocolate and white, Chihuahua mix.
Romeo arrived at the shelter as a transfer from an overcrowded shelter in Idaho Falls. This little guy weights just 9-1/2 pounds. Hes a bright, happy, wiggly ray of sunshine.
He has a congenital defect that makes his front legs bowed and a bit funny looking. But it doesnt cause him any distress and doesnt impede him from doing his favorite thing sitting in your lap and receiving lots of attention. Romeo is a gentle guy and his whole body seems to wag when hes happy.
He does well with other dogs, but will require a home with older children.
Romeo can be found in kennel 305 (#18990704) at the Idaho Humane Society at 4775 Dorman St. in Boise. The shelter is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Sunday
