Roma's Story...
Hi there! My name is Roma and I’m an amazing 1 and a half year old, 45-pound, boxer cross. I’m already so excited to meet you, because I’m always pretty excited about everything. But my foster mom says that if you make me lay down, I calm down pretty quickly. Distracting me with toys is also a good trick. I love to fetch balls and carry around my hedgehog stuffed animal. I won’t take treats from strangers, even if they’re trying to give me French fries. But, once I warm up to you, you can give me all the treats in the world. Please give me lots of treats! For the first week in my new house I was really embarrassed because I kept peeing on the floor. But I had just been spayed and was still unsure where the back door was. I’m proud to say, it’s been two weeks accident free now. I swear I am house trained! I love belly rubs, ear scratches, walks and giving kisses. I really hope you pick me to come live with you forever. I’ve had lots of different homes, and I’m ready to stop moving. Can’t wait to meet you!

Roma really is an amazing dog. For being so young, she’s incredibly smart and attentive. Being a boxer she sure does have energy to burn. But she knows when its play time and time to settle down. If she gets too worked up, she can get a little rough in her play, but if you make her lie down and stay she almost instantly calms down. Tug of war isn’t a game that’s good for her, as it gets her worked up and rough. She does love to play fetch and even just running around the backyard in circles is a favourite pastime of hers. She walks pretty well with her harness. It won’t take long for her to learn to heel though because she’s one smart cookie. She will sit at every sidewalk and doesn’t pull unless a new friend is coming near her. She’s the friendliest dog in the world so all dogs and people are her friends. It hasn’t been tested since coming to her foster home, but her surrender form says she does well with children and cats also. Roma loves everybody and likes to show it with a big kiss. She knows how to sit, lie down, stay, come and shake a paw. She listens very well if there is food involved. She will also sit and wait to eat her food until you tell her its okay. Just don’t make her wait too long or she may drool a bit. Roma loves to snuggle in bed, but also knows to go to her bed to sleep and will only jump up once to let me know she needs to go out. If I put her in her crate overnight she sleeps without making a peep. She goes in to her crate on command, although she isn’t destructive when left out of the crate while I do errands. Roma needs owners who understand her breed and are willing to work with her. She has amazing potential and is already such a good dog. Some love and obedience training will go a long way to help her grow from a bouncy pup to the perfect companion.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Roma, a Cambridge Boxer dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Boxer for sale in Cambridge, or seeking a Boxer dog from a breeder in Cambridge.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Cambridge already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Cambridge breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Boxer breeders who help with Boxer rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Cambridge paves the way for another one to be saved.
