||Romi sheds some fine hair. He gets brushed twice daily and has had a bath. I am giving him a shed defense supplement. I think the shedding is better. His coat is becoming very shiny and healthy. He is still timid in new situations. He does not bark much, not really timid around loud noises, but timid when initially meeting new people.
||Romi was timid but is now becoming playful. He likes walks (2x 30 minutes and 2 short daily), treats, and is learning how to sit. He sleeps well through the night and does not need a lot of exercise. He has gained some weight and his coat is more healthy in just a week. He eats morning and evening (kibble and wet dog food mixed). His bowel movements are solid. The vet said he is thin but he is eating more and will gain more weight with time. He is happy and now smiles when the leash comes out and in the morning when he wakes up. Pretty cute. Romi will make a great addition to a family. I believe he would be fine with other small non-aggressive dogs.
