Maroma is a very sweet but shy little guy who is working hard to acclimate to life in Canada since leaving the shelter in Mexico where he’d spent his entire life.
Maroma can generally be found hanging out in his crate, and he entertains his foster mom every day as he gently and lovingly gathers up the toys he wants 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. Living in a home is all new for Maroma, but he is learning what it means to be a beloved indoor dog and responds well to correction and redirection when his curiosity gets the better of him and he starts investigating what’s on the counter!
On the whole, Maroma is very quiet, and his exercise needs are minimal, but we expect that he will become more energetic as he continues to settle in (and as the weather warms up). The sights, sounds, and smells of the neighbourhood he lives in now are a little overwhelming for a timid dog like him, but he’s slowly coming around and manages to walk a little farther each time he ventures out. At the moment, Maroma is very satisfied with quick trips outside to relieve himself before he heads back inside to seek refuge in his favourite place — his cosy crate!
Maroma is currently being fostered with another calm dog his size, and he would likely do well living with another gentle dog his size or smaller as bigger dogs seem to scare him a bit.
Maroma is looking for a patient adult home that can look past his shyness to see his true potential. Although he desires affection, he is nervous to receive it, but with time and space, he will settle in and open up. Even if progress might be slow, it will be worth it in the end. As Maroma gains more confidence, he will undoubtedly blossom into a loving, faithful companion!
