Sooky Romeo loves the attention

By Jacklyn Yeong

Romeo is a popular Maltese-Shih Tzu often attracting attention with his independent off-leash walks.

He was strictly trained for two months to stay in sight of his owner and away from dangerous areas. However, he might be caught cheekily trying to edge closer to the wharf to sniff out fishing or ducks.

His owner, Ron, revealed that starting young and identifying Romeo’s weakness helped speed up the off-leash training process.

“Off-leash training is very hard,” Ron said. “Although I found out whenever you use boiled chicken to train him, he will listen to you.”

Ron said he took Romeo for at least five walks a day as Romeo was very attached to him. He also prone to be jealous of Ron’s other pets.

“I used to have a rabbit and he just got jealous,” Ron said. “He started getting sick and stopped eating food. You can’t ignore him.”

If Ron left home for too long, Romeo would cry until he knew for sure that Ron came back.

The love is not a one-way street, with Ron eager to return home to see Romeo after work.
