Romeo is now 12 human years old and still looks like a puppy! He was rescued at the age of 5 and came with a host of emotional issues. He had previously been the companion to an elderly woman who suffered from Alzheimer's Disease and could no longer care for him. He refused to eat or drink anything when he came to his new home and had to be hand fed and force fed water via a syringe for the first several months with his new family.
He eventually came around and now is very friendly with people. He especially loves children who are gentle with him as he is very tiny and can get hurt if someone is too rough with him. He still has some anxiety and does not like to be left alone for too long but he is definitely living a much healthier and happier life.
Toby is a two year old Yorkshire Terrier. He was found scared and roaming the streets after obviously escaping from his owner's home. When he was first picked up, he was so scared and wouldn't let anyone touch him without trying to bite them. Once he realized the humans were not trying to hurt him, but help him, he stopped being so defensive. The family who originally found him tried very hard to find his owners but no one ever claimed him so he came to be a part of the DCTC team. Toby is a handful and still very much a puppy at heart. He lives in his own world and isn't concerned with what other people think of him. We could all stand to be a little more like Toby.
