Meet Maverick!  This fun-loving boy is a 6 year old, neutered male.  He is approximately 80 lbs.  His surrendering owners were told he was a Newf/Border Collie mix, although he could be Newf/retriever or who knows what!  One thing for sure, he's cute!
Maverick was surrendered when changes in his family's life made it impossible to meet his needs. 


Maverick always has a smile on his face!

Maverick is used to being a well-loved dog, and has nice house manners and nice training.  He is house trained, non-destructive, and a really good boy!


He is living in a foster home with a male Newf, and although they get along just fine, Maverick has been most interested in playing with his humans. He would be perfectly happy as an only dog, or with a canine pal (male or female).  He is also reported to be just fine with cats and small breed dogs.

He has lived with children in the past and was a good boy.  

Wanna play??

Maverick is an energetic boy who LOVES his walks.  His foster family is working of teaching him loose leash walking skills, and is also working on his recall.  He absolutely loves to play with his people! His favourite games are fetch & tug.  Look at him go!




After a nice game of fetch, Maverick is ready to curl up for a cuddle and a belly rub.  He also really enjoys being brushed!

He is fine when left home alone, but sooo excited to see you when you return! You can't help but feel loved coming home to his big tail wags and lots of "talking" as he happily spins in circles! Arroooo!

Aug 28--Maverick's routine bloodwork came back showing that he is lyme positive.  He is now starting a 6 week treatment.  His kidney values are also elevated so we are investigating the cause of this.  Updates will follow.

Maverick is located in the GTA.  His approved adopters will be required to pick him up in person.  An adoption donation will apply.
