I'm Romeo, No. 79, a black pitbull mix approximately 15 months old. I weigh at least 47 pounds, and I'm neutered, tattooed and micro-chipped. I was taken to the Maui Humane Society's Puunene shelter because I kept myself hidden under a bed in a house with loud, young children. Still, I'm a friendly, very gentle guy looking for a loyal, devoted person with a big heart and in need of a loyal companion. I am very well behaved and love to earn treats for my good behavior. I will stay right by your side on or off leash. I will lie patiently at your feet waiting for a kind word or a pat on the head.
