Maverick is one handsome young guy who is ready for his forever home! He is a Border Collie/Shepherd mix who has a beautiful black coat, white-tipped feet and a splash of white on his chest. He is a little thin at 48 pounds and should probably gain another 5 or so – such a nice size! Maverick is housebroken, crate-trained and is just starting to learn his basic commands. He LOVES to ride in the car and walks pretty well on leash – he is ready to ride!
Maverick is a bit shy when he first meets a new person, but he warms up as soon as he sees that you are his friend. He is the same way with children; initially reserved but then he becomes a friendly boy. We would describe Maverick as a medium Velcro dog – he is a little more independent at home and he stays closer to you when in public. He also has a medium energy level – he loves long walks, a good romp in the yard – but then he settles nicely. Maverick is good with other dogs. He is not really playful with other dogs, but he enjoys hanging out, walking side by side and sharing a car ride. He is also fine with cats.
The ideal home for Maverick is with a family who is “on the go” and who is ready to share their adventures with a happy, car-ride-loving, walk-loving partner. A commitment to continued training and socialization will help to make Maverick the most amazing guy ever. A fenced yard is required, children over the age of 10 are fine, and another laid back dog pal would be welcome. If Maverick is the happy, ready-to-ride guy you have been looking for, apply today! Maverick is fostered in Atlantic Beach, FL.
