Meet Maverick aka Mav! Mav is a 6-year-old, neutered male, cattle dog husky mix. Maverick has been with his family for 5.5 years. Due to tensions rising with the senior dog in the home, it is making it a stressful environment for both dogs and Maverick isn't thriving. As difficult as it is, we know Mav would be so much more comfortable and successful as the only pet in a home. Maverick is a goofy guy that is excited to greet you when you come home. He will grab one of his many favorite toys, parade around with it and throw it up in the air as you arrive. He loves going for walks and is an excellent walker! He doesn't pull on the leash and ignores other dogs when passing. He has been a great hiking companion and would love a family that has a similar interest. Mav also enjoys swimming and having some down time with his people while on the couch.
Maverick can be an anxious guy when there is a lot of commotion going on and would prefer a home with adults only. When he is anxious, he has a history of being sensitive to handling and resource guarding items. This has resulted in bites towards people. Mav's family has been working with a trainer to help with some of his challenges and has been making great progress in several areas!
If Mav seems like a potential good fit for your home, please message us and we can provide you more details about his bite incidents, what we have been working on with his trainer and all the amazing qualities he has!
