Maverick's Story...
Hi! I am an energetic, fun-loving 2 year old boxer weighing 58 lbs. My name is Maverick. Probably I was so named because I have to admit that I am a bit of an independent thinker! I was found as a stray by a kind woman who brought me to MaxFund so I would be safe until my family came to claim me. However, no one has come to claim me so I am now looking for a family to call my own forever.
I seem to like men, women, and children. I get on with some other friendly dogs and I tend not to mind cats. I love going for walks and I walk calmly on a leash. However, I am easily scared (I try to duck and run) if you raise the end of the leash or shake it suddenly so I need my family to understand that such leash movements can bring back bad memories. Positive reinforcement techniques can help me overcome these fears.

I am not sure if I have had “formal training” but I am a smart dog who already understands how to sit and I behave well. However, I am still young and I know I would benefit from further reward-based training classes since I enjoy learning new things. Also training would help my family and me get to know each other better.

I do need to be in a setting where I'm not exposed to strangers. You see, my shyness and fears can make me react unpredictably when confronted by a stranger, even a well-meaning one. So for everyone's safety, please avoid having me interact with anyone I don't know well, whether at home or on walks.

Playtime is very fun and it would be great to have a backyard to run in - however I will need a 6 foot high fence to keep me safe since I am quite an athlete!

Please come by to meet me if you are in the MaxFund neighborhood. I am always ready for a walk and it is interesting having visitors. Maybe you will even want to take me home!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Denver 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 Denver 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 Denver paves the way for another one to be saved.
