Pet of the Week- Romeo

Published 9:50 pm Thursday, June 29, 2023

“I am an 8.5-month-old micro Frenchie named Romeo. I belong to Kenneth and Mickie Messick of Goshen. So far, I have been a very healthy boy with absolutely no health problems. I love playing in the yard with my fur friends Crazy the Cat and Gixer. Playing in the water is my very favorite thing to do. I love to eat blueberries, bananas, strawberries and Ruffles potato chips.”

Romeo’s owners explained that he is an extremely affectionate companion that has to be close to his humans at all times. He loves to give kisses and has learned how to sit, jump, and fetch. The Messicks said he has a very unique personality, is very easy to love and is a precious part of their family. Romeo is an interesting and entertaining pup, often getting the “zoomies” and always sleeping on his back with all four legs in the air. Romeo cannot stand the sound of power tools and tries to bite any that are fired up in his presence.
