Meet Maverick

Maverick is a wonderful little pup who has had a rough time in his short life. He was seized from a domestic abuse situation after he was beaten so badly, he suffered severe head trauma and a punctured lung and ended up in the emergency vet's office.

Maverick made a remarkable recovery only to find himself in a crowded shelter and scheduled to be euthanized. I absolutely could not stand the thought of Maverick leaving this earth only knowing pain and suffering at the hands of humans. He deserves to know what is like to be loved and to feel the gentle touch of a caring owner. He deserves to go for rides in the car, play fetch with a ball, swim in a lake and nap in the sun; all the things that dogs love to do but he hasn't had the chance to do.

Maverick is now in a foster home and has learned to get along with all medium/large dogs in it splendidly. He loves to play with other dogs and attention from his humans! He's currently crated in a wire crate for 8hrs while his foster mom goes to work and he doesn't just fine. He's had no accidents in the house! He loves chewing on bones/rawhide and knows his commands. He'll sit, down, stay, and come. We're still working on those leash skills though, and he's improving. Maverick has finally learned not to jump on people, to sit and wait at doors and he rides great in a car. Maverick is a smart, energetic boy with lots of potential; he just needs to right home to guide him. With the proper training and care, Maverick will thrive and become an exceptional companion; lots of love and patience is the key to help Maverick overcome his traumatic past and have a happy and bright future.

Maverick is approx 8 mos old, he is neutered, UTD with vaccines, micropchipped and his adoption fee is $200. If you are interested in adopting Maverick, please contact Mandy at 574-633-4611 or dogs@heartlandsmallanimalrescue.org or to access an on-line application go to http://www.heartlandsmallanimalrescue.org/Canine-Application.html
