Hi, I'm Maverick. I've had a pretty rough time recently, I was dumped at the shelter for being an escape artist. My foster mom says I'm a good boy that just wants to be loved. I am about 2 years old.
Here's a little bit about myself;
I am a goofball and a little clumsy, so I may not be a good fit for small children. I love to snuggle up next to you or just lay on the floor by your feet. I like to be by my foster mom always, sometimes I whine if she leaves me alone, it's just because I'm not sure if she will be back. I'm working on that. Mom always tells me she'll be right back.
I love playing with my foster brothers all the time. Sometimes I forget I need to settle. I am still young so I have lots of energy to play. I also love my humans brothers and sisters, they are older (12-16) and a lot of fun to play with. I love playing fetch although I don't always bring my toy back. Hehe
Foster mom says I'm doing well with my potty training, she brings me out every two hours. It's going great so far. No accidents!
Guess what I don't counter surf either! Mom says that's the best way to get treats. I know how to sit and stay too. I will get in my kennel with a treat. I don't whine or bark and I sleep all night with no accidents. I do prefer a bed in my kennel to lay on, I don't care for the hard floor so much. I take my treats gently and I prefer to free feed, I have gained most of my weight back now. Mom says I was a little skinny when I got here. I'm not food aggressive at all, my foster brothers and I switch bowls all the time while eating, you know, in case they get something better.
Foster mom says I walk okay on a leash, but I need a little more work. I get distracted sometimes, I love to smell all the smells. And I haven't met anyone I didn't like. I do love meeting new people, except the garbage men, they scare me a little. But, I'm not bothered by thunderstorms.
I have had a full checkup and all my vaccinations. I was neutered recently. I'm very excited about finding my forever family, who will be loving and patient with me, while I'm learning my new routines and expectations. I would enjoy a playmate, but as long as you like to take walks, play and let me lay at your feet, I can be your new BFFF.
