About Maroma

Maroma is a very sweet and handsome little guy who can dress up or down, depending on the occasion. He has an adorable underbite that makes for a great picture and his foster mom has even caught a smile or two when he gets very excited. He is working hard to acclimate to life in Canada since leaving the shelter in Mexico where he’d spent his entire life and has come a long way in the few months he has been here.

Maroma is coming out of his shell more each day and his puppy personality provides plenty of entertainment for his foster mom. He is just as happy cuddling on the couch as he is hanging out in his crate where he gently and lovingly gathers up toys, socks, mittens, or slippers to cuddle with and carries them into his little den.

As he has gradually become more comfortable in his foster home, his inquisitive and playful sides have really started to show – he’s even getting a little bit naughty, sometimes acting just like a toddler! He is learning what it means to be a beloved indoor dog and responds well to correction and redirection. He walks well on a harness and leash but can get overwhelmed with too much stimulation and needs to be calmed down with a loving voice or quick cuddle.

On the whole, Maroma is fairly low maintenance, and his exercise needs are minimal.  He adores people watching from the kitchen window and has become the newest member of the neighbourhood watch in his foster mom's area. He loves being outside in warm weather and would be a wonderful companion to someone with a backyard or front porch to join them in watching the world go by.

Maroma would likely do well living with another dog who can help guide him on his path to adulthood and unleash his playful side. He adores other dogs and will freeze in place on walks so he can give his full attention to them as they walk by.

Maroma is very playful with his foster mom but will take some time warming up to new people, as he is skittish around those who haven't yet earned his trust; however, to those who have, he is incredibly loving and quirky and tries very hard to please. As Maroma gains more confidence, he will undoubtedly blossom into a loving, faithful companion!
