After 5.5 months of looking for his forever home to no avail, handsome Romeo finally got ADOPTED!! 🍕🎉😍 Romeo is now called Rusty by his adoring family. He was with @cawsanimals rescue in Utah and had been featured on SSD three different times. We couldn't figure out why he wasn't getting scooped up! Rusty had been found all alone as a stray, an especially heartbreaking sight for seniors. But finally, after a few posts on SSD Jenna realized it was she who was meant to adopt Rusty! It hasn't taken Rusty long at all to settle in with his new family. And everyone is smitten! 😍
Jenna wrote, "Rusty (who was Romeo when you posted about him) is fitting in just great! He has been settling in and exploring as much as possible. I saw him when you posted about him earlier in the summer, and when he came up again I knew we had to get him!
We were a little worried about how Rusty would get along with our other dog, Jack, but the two of them haven't had any issues. We often see Rusty following him around and licking Jack's nose when he lets him. We think Jack is 5- 6 years old. We adopted him from @bestfriendsanimalsociety a few years ago (and he hadn't been chipped yet so they guessed his age at that time). He is a border collie mix so he definitely has more energy for walks/runs with us, but otherwise he loves just lounging around the house! Everything has gone well with the two of them so far and hopefully will continue that way. ☺️ Rusty hobbles around since he has elbow displaysia, but it really doesn't seem to keep him down! I also keep finding him staring at himself in the mirror in my closet like he is a puppy just discovering mirrors for the first time. He is so cute and sweet!" ❤️ #seniordog #adopted #adoptdontshop
