Facts about Roma

  • Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier Mix
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Female
I’m Roma, a 75 lb very beautiful female American Staffordshire Terrier. Although I’m already 3 years old, I still have the exuberance of a puppy at times. I have a medium to high energy level and need at least 30 minutes of walking and 30 minutes of fetch/playtime (preferably in the yard) before I’m good to relax and sleep for the remainder of the day (preferably on the bed). I wouldn’t mind more activity though, and would love an active home where I can join my family on hikes and other adventures. I may not be friendly with other dogs, kids, or strangers, but I am super loving and affectionate with my family. In fact, I’ve even won over my owner’s mom who, before me, has never had dogs and never liked dogs. Because of my sweet and silly personality, she has fallen completely in love with me and has been known to get down on the ground to play and cuddle with me. She has even asked HALDR to provide her personal email address to anyone wanting to hear her “Roma Story” to help them understand what an amazing dog I am. Not bad for a “bully” breed and a non-dog lover, eh?
Much as it breaks her heart to give me up, my owner needs to do it due to a number of reasons. I have some socialization, anxiety and protectiveness issues that she has not been able to correct on her own. To make things even harder, my owner is 8 months pregnant and I am showing even more protectiveness around her right now. My owner has been tirelessly working to re-socialize me and deal with my issues and I have been improving daily as a result. But she will not be able to give me the time and attention I need as a single mother with a newborn. I need someone who has the knowledge, patience and time to help me learn to be an even better dog.
I grew up in a household where I am much loved and well cared for. I am hoping some kind soul will recognize how great I am and give me the second chance I need at a loving home. My adoption fee is $200.

About Home at Last Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Home at Last Dog Rescue is a small group of volunteer animal lovers whose goal is to help homeless, neglected and abused dogs find caring and responsible homes.

Our volunteers are dedicated individuals who have joined together to form a new rescue group. We are commited to helping dogs in need and to provide them a second chance at a happy life.

Our dogs are not kept in a shelter. We depend on the support of caring and compassionate people to care for our dogs until we can find them permanent, loving homes. We provide vet care and rehabilitation to all of our dogs.

Our Adoption Process...

If you are interested in adopting a rescue dog, the first step is to search through the list of our dogs currently available for adoption. All dogs remain on Adoptapet and our website ( until an adoption is finalized so all dogs listed may be applied for.

Our job is to find the right home for each of our dogs. We will contact you to arrange for a home check at your convenience. Unfortunately, many of our applications are rejected, not necessarily because there is anything wrong with the home, but because it is not the right match for the dog. Following a successful home visit, we will arrange for you to meet the dog, usually in their foster home. At that time, you will decide if you would like to adopt the dog.

Before an adoption can be finalized, we will ask you to sign an adoption contract. Depending on the dog’s personality you may be asked to visit the dog once or twice before taking him or her home. This will be most common with shy, timid dogs. Outgoing and confident dogs can most often be taken home after the first meeting. Documentation for each dog will be provided upon adoption. Adopters must be ready to pick up their adopted dog home as soon as they have been approved and have agreed to adopt the dog. Home At Last Dog Rescue BC cannot hold dogs for people who have applied but are not yet ready to accept the dog into their home.

Please note: an adoption fee is required for successful applications. The adoption fee is non-refundable, even if the dog is subsequently returned. Home At Last Dog Rescue BC will always take back one of our dogs for any reason, and without question. Adoption fees for our dogs vary. The price varies based on the age and medical needs of the dog being adopted; costs are judged on a case by case basis.
