Maverick is a very handsome Australian Shepherd who is back in our program through absolutely no fault of his own and he is ready to join his forever family! He is 7 years old, he is about 10 pounds overweight at 70 pounds, and he has a fabulous blue merle coat with lots of copper accents. Maverick is housebroken, crate-trained and he is learning his basic obedience commands. He walks wonderfully on leash and he is a great passenger in the car.
Maverick loves people of all ages! He has such a gentle demeanor. This medium Velcro, lower energy guy is happiest when he is hanging out with his foster family, getting plenty of belly rubs and head scratches. Maverick also gets along great with other dogs! He is not really playful with other dogs, he is what we call a “peaceful coexister”. Maverick enjoys the company of other dogs and he will happily join his foster dog pals for daily patrols of the yard, short walks in the neighborhood and evenings of naps and TV on the sofa, but he is not going to play with them. Maverick has not been tested with cats.
The ideal home for Maverick is shared with a family who is happy, easy-going, and ready for a great best friend. A fenced yard is important, another “peaceful coexister” dog is fine but not required, and children over the age of 10 are welcome. Maverick is an amazing dog and he is ready for his amazing home, maybe yours? Apply today! Maverick is fostered in Chesapeake, VA.
Maverick's adoption donation is $275.
