PURINA Pound Pups To Dog Stars


Romeo - Black Labrador Cross Puppy (Ham)

Purina Pound Pups To Dog Stars on TV ONE and TVNZ Ondemand

Puppy – male black labrador cross


Romeo is a 5 month old male Black Labrador Cross Puppy. After a not-so-great start to life, Romeo is currently on medication for demodex mange. He is responding very well to his medication and he will need to be on it for another month or so. Romeo is very loving, all he wants to do is please you. He always checks in to make sure he is doing the right thing and will do absolutely anything for a pat.  He is crate-trained and sleeps in his crate every night. As we are unsure of his breed it is hard to say how big he will grow, however he is already at the 20kg mark and has very big feet so he will be quite large!

Romeo is very intelligent and catches on very quickly to training – within a few days he was house trained, knew how to ‘sit’, ‘stay’, ‘come here’, ‘leave it’, ‘go inside/outside’ and ‘go in your crate’. He does have a lot of energy so will need regular exercise and play. Some further lead training will be required, as he loves to go for walks.He has met many dogs, cats, rabbits, and been great with all of them. As he is very big and full of love he probably won’t be very good with small children. Romeo is just an all-round awesome puppy and any family would be lucky to have him!

Romeo is now available for adoption for $180.00 to an approved family. Romeo has been vet checked, desexed, received his first vaccination, flea and worm treatment, microchipped, NZCAR registered and council registered.
