ID #: 3041 Age: 3 yrs Gender: male Status: Adopted

Howdy…my name is Maverick and I’m three years old.  I’m a big boy…not overweight but as Elvis says: “I’m just tall that’s all”.  As big as I am, I’m actually very gentle and loving.  My only foible (and you may never have heard this one before 😊) is that I don’t like things going fast past me like skateboards or cyclists.  I tend to lunge after them and I do the same thing if I see a critter.  Because I’m big and strong, you need to be even stronger to hold me back…or I could be taking you for a nasty ride.  Other than that, I’m actually pretty good on the leash.  My lovely foster dad describes me as very easy-going with a calm, relaxed nature.  As much as I love my walks, I also love chilling and just lazing outside.  I love people and other dogs but if a dog is barking or aggressive with me, then I’ll will retaliate…I’m obviously no push-over (ha-ha).  I am not a big barker otherwise.  I am gentle with my treats and not afraid of loud noises.  You can leave me alone if you have to go out without me and you can touch me anywhere.  Well, that’s about it for me.  I’m heading outside now to laze around and watch this wonderful world go by.

Maverick is currently being fostered in the Newmarket, ON area. If you would like more information about Maverick please call our hot-line toll free at 1-866-712-8444 or email and one of our volunteers will be happy to return your call.
