Romeo stuck around for six years, playing with the dogs and humans in the area.
During those six years, Romeo’s love for Nick and his pooch remained as strong as ever. They never could have realized that such a chance encounter would lead to such a lasting bond, friendship, or even family. All they ever expected was for the two animals to see one another and hopefully not get themselves into a scrappy brawl.
The animals could sense kindness out of one another, though, and that was the important take away from all of it. Nick realized that it was extremely important not to judge a book by its cover, even if it’s the easy thing to do.
