Pet of the Week Dog and Cat print

Stu News Newport is delighted to be working with the Newport Beach Animal Shelter to help get the word out in search of loving homes for pets that deserve a warm, nurturing environment and a place to call “home.

Ok, who’s the cutest? If you make us pick, we’ll pick Romeo. As an 8-year-old chihuahua mix, he’s totally got the art of Cupid down. If this sweet pup could recite any poem, it definitely would be “Roses are red…” A totally happy guy that will follow you through every season of your heart, he’s great with everyone, but he probably shouldn’t live in a home with rabbits or other small mammals. Romeo really is the kind of guy that brightens up a room. He always looks forward to seeing you and makes sure that you know that you are, absolutely, the most important one to him. If you’ve been looking for a really happy relationship, Romeo would love to meet you.
