Romeo stayed by Juliet's side after she was hit by a carA maltese terrier mix named Romeo, who was found caring for his dying friend by a roadside last week, has been adopted. Romeo found his forever home within a few day of the release of a video highlighting the little dog's love and loyalty. 

Romeo stayed by his "Juliet" - another maltese terrier - after she was run over by a car. "He stayed with her the whole time," said Isha Willits, a caregiver at Baldwin Park Animal Care Center in Los Angeles, California. "She was injured and probably dying, and he stayed by her side," said Willits. "Unfortunately, Juliet died on the way to the vet, [but] he lived."

Of Romeo, Willits said "He'd cuddle with you all night,".
