Maverick is mixed breed dog (DNA test results in photo’s) that originally joined the PB & Chi Pack back in 2016, after he was saved from a shelter in Arizona. He is around 6 years old and working on slimming down his 70lb frame.
We will let the handsome Maverick tell you about himself:
Hello! I’m Maverick, also know as “Mavy or Mavy too Snavvy”. I’ma strange duck, who will make you laugh or smile everyday! I lived with my mom alone for a long time, and really liked that, but then she got married and had a baby and that was just too much for me. The little baby started crawling and it made me nervous, so mom reached out to the rescue to find me a home without kids where I could be calm and happy.
I am a bit nervous sometimes around new people, but if you let me come to you and give me treats, I will be pudding in your hands in no time! Like previously said, I’m not a fan of kids, so my forever home should not have them. My ideal home would be one person wanting to shower all their love on me, or maybe a couple, because 4 hands rubbing my belly is better than just two!
When it comes to other dogs, I’m a bit of a quagmire. When I see them out on the street and I haven’t met them, I can make a bit of a production, BUT with my new face halti I am easily redirected to pay attention to other things until I calm down. I’m also totally muzzle trained, so when it comes time to meet new doggies, that’s always a safe option to make everyone feel safe. While most dogs don’t like meeting other dogs in their home, that’s where I feel safest! I know you wouldn’t let a bad dog in the house, so it makes me feel better meeting them inside my home, or even car, and then going for a walk after and I’m perfect! I am currently living with the Pack Dog Training and have been living with 12 other dogs for the last month! We go for walks together and even play in the backyard! I still don’t know how to totally speak dog, so someone should always watch when I play so I don’t get too rambunctious or listen when the other doggie says they have enough for now. I am NOT a fan of kitties.
I LOVE walks and hikes! Don’t let my stature fool you, or the fact that I had double hip surgery years ago, I can WALK! Me and my foster mom walk at least 2 miles everyday and I love going into the woods with my doggie buddies and exploring or rolling in dead things or eating grass.
When I am at home, I am a big ham! I love carrying my stuffies around – my Canadian beaver is my favorite, and bringing them to you in return for snuggles or belly rubs. I LOVE my crate, I feel safe there and have no issue hanging out and chewing a bone or watching Netflix while everyone does their stuff. I am totally housebroken, never ONCE have had an accident.
I know that I am not the “easy dog” or the most adoptable, but I promise if you give me a chance, I will make you smile everyday and appreciate you giving me a second chance at life!
My former mom made me a cute instagram account @maverickneedsahome” but you can also see me daily in The Pack Dog Training Instagram or Facebook stories as I help her working with dogs, or exploring the trails.
