Romeo is a 3-year-old, neutered male pitbull mix. He knows how to sit, come and likes to play in water. He was returned to the Maui Humane Society's Puunene shelter on June 12 because his former owner didn't have enough time for him. According to shelter staffers, Romeo is eager to please and enjoys attention, soaking up the center stage when he was in the Makawao 4th of July parade.
