ROMIE 9 month old male black Lab mix 82 lbs not neutered

Background:Romie started his life in Shingle Springs when sadly his owner passed. He was in a house where he played with 3 large dogs. He is in a temporary home until we find the right foster or adopter for this nice boy.

From Romie's Rescue Rep: Romie is a big puppy and will continue to fill out. He gets spooked by new noises and would benefit by a calm household. He is very calm for his age but cautious of new people and new situations yet he does quickly warm up to you. Does not show any signs of aggression.

When entering his home, he had licks for us and took treats from our hands. He has a very soft mouth, is treat motivated and knows sit and down. He wants to please. He has recently learned how to fetch. Loves his belly rubs! Romie has good house manners and does not chew on inappropriate items. He does well riding in the car. His mannerism is very Lab like.

Romie jumped the owner’s 6’ fence once when left in the yard alone after he first arrived. Once he feels he belongs, this should not be an issue. In the meantime, he should not be left in the yard alone. He needs consistency to build his confidence. Romie is house broken. He is not crate trained but the owner is working on it.

No cats or young kids in the home please. Older kids (teenagers) might be okay but only if they and the adults in the household are calm.

Medical: Romie has seen a vet and is healthy and up to date on vax. He will need to be neutered (Lab Rescue will arrange), chipped and Heartworm tested.

Located in: San Mateo

If you are interested in fostering or adopting Romie, please email Sandy at and tell me why he would be a good fit for your home. Please leave your callback number.

Please note our service area: GGLRR adopts to the greater San Francisco Bay Area.

Our volunteers donate their personal time phones so please only call during reasonable hours (8am - 8pm). The Rescue Rep identified in the dog posting is the only person with information about the dog - please only contact the designated volunteer. We do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient. We work very hard to make the right matches for the dogs and for the new owners. We get 3-5 dogs per week; we do not have a facility where the dogs are housed, they are in foster homes throughout the Bay Area.
