Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Maverick is currently in residence at our holding facility and has quickly become a favorite of the volunteers who care for him. He is a gentle sweet soul who seems to have received little attention in his life and now soaks up attention like a "sponge". Our kennel volunteers report that he loves to roam freely when they are on duty and has discovered a treasure trove of dog toys--the storage bin where extras are kept! Maverick enthusiastically started emptying the toy chest like a little kid on Christmas morning. Speaking of Christmas, check out his video where he enjoyed opening gifts Chritsmas morning. Maverick is a mature pittie or mix. Although, he looks like senior boy because of his grey muzzle, some vet records indicate his age somewhere around 6. Family members estimated his age to be a bit older. He was relinquished to us from a life spent mostly outside, but quickly adjusted to the warmth and attention he receives from our volunteers. He enjoys walks with his kennel mates Bekka and Fletcher. And does well with other dogs when properly introduced. Mavericks favorite things include tennis balls, toys (by the bin full), and peanut butter. He knows basic obedience and will work for tasty little hot dog bites too. He likes car rides, even to the vet, where he is a well-behaved gentleman. He is waiting for a forever family that he can give his love and devotion too. Applications also being accepted for a foster home or forever home. IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ Click here for the ADOPTION APPLICATION if you are interested in adopting this pet.
