Romo the dog captures Washington's social media scene

Walking along a busy street in the Washington DC neighbourhood of Adams Morgan one can't help but notice a big face - and big paws - looking down onto the street from its window perch.

It is Romo, the "King of Adams Morgan" as he has been called, and a social media rockstar in the US capital.

Ever since his owners Tiffany Bacon and Peter Scourby put a nameplate under the window, the 150-pound animal has seen his mentions on Instagram and Twitter skyrocket.

Now the couple is moving to the suburbs and neighbours are voicing their opinion on social media about Romo's departure.
