Nick Jans and his dog’s home is located in the mountains, and there is no better place to unwind and rest than on their lovely porch. This place never fails to provide both of them with a serene time as they watch the picturesque mountains around them. But one day, the peace they were enjoying on their porch was suddenly shattered by a very alarming sight. A ferocious animal came out from the woods and was approaching their house.
Before any unwanted situations might happen, Jans’ dog immediately ran towards the animal, a wolf, to protect his owner from any possible danger. Jans felt a sudden chill in his bones because the wolf could possibly attack and kill his beloved dog. His heart was pounding at that time because he knows that his dog is no match for a wolf. But the next thing that happened totally surprised, and yes, delighted him: both of the furry animals decided to play together!
Jans breathed a sigh of relief, and since that day, the wolf kept coming back every day at their place to play with his dog. Jans’ dog not only found a new playmate but a new friend that he could treasure forever.
Eventually, Jans decided to name the wolf Romeo.
His dog and the wolf’s friendship were so delightful that these two animals became famous in their village called Juneau. The duo’s friendship spread so quickly that their town even became a tourist spot because everybody was so curious about the pair.
Everyone who visits their village brings their dog to play with the wolf. At first, all of them felt intimidated by Romeo, but the wolf showed how friendly he could be and cheerfully played with the dog. Jans’ dog was only too thrilled to see that he can now play with more dogs together with his new friend!
The photos of Romeo, Jans’ dog, and the visitors’ dogs received so many positive comments and delighted to see that a wolf can be that friendly.
One more surprising thing about Romeo is that, even if he was not domesticated, it appears that he can deeply understand what people say and asks to do. That is why he never finds it hard to interact with humans and the domesticated dogs around him. But Jans, his neighborhood, the visitors, and people in various parts of the world wouldn’t possibly discover the wolf’s wonderful side if not for the first creature who saw his heart, Jans’ dog.
