Maverick has been in our holding kennel for a year. Waiting. Hoping for a forever or even a foster home. He is a 70 pound, 6-8 year old Pibble Mix. He has a golden tan coat with white on his chest, feet, and face. Maverick spent years tied outside where he could see other dogs, but could never get close enough to interact with them. Because of that, he continues to learn proper interaction with other dogs, but he now can enjoy multiple daily walks with his canine friends at the kennel, both male and female. Maverick has excelled at basic obedience and enjoys the mental activity of doing it daily.
He has quite the joy for life. He loves toys. Lots of them. And he’ll literally love them to pieces. He loves blankets! After years of living outside, he now loves to burrow into a pile a blankets and cover himself up until he is completely hidden. He loves walks, meeting new people, cuddling and affection. He adores car rides, even to the vet, and he is always a well-behaved gentleman there. He has really thrived in the routine of the kennel environment with the love and care of the volunteers there.
We think he is OK with cats although he is not around them in our care. A home with older, dog savvy, or no kids would be best for Maverick. His ideal would have a fenced yard. It would also require someone willing to provide a steady supply of chewies and be able to keep Maverick safe from trash can raids or counter surfing. Yes, he is an opportunist. His forever home should enjoy Mav’s unique, somewhat quirky, personality and be able to provide guidance, mental stimulation, and exercise in addition to loving this big goofball.
