Meet Maverick

Name: Maverick
Nicknames: Mav. Mavy. Garbage Baby.
Breed: Pitty Mix
Sex: Male
Age: 8 months
Current weight: 45 pounds
Before OMD: Found his way to us through the city shelter.
Key descriptors: Spunky. Smart. Sassy. Social. Funny. Affectionate.
Energy level: Higher.
Affection level: Also, high. He enjoys being near you, touching you, snuggling you, sitting next to you, sitting on you, and being held.
If he had a quote in his Instagram bio: Live. Laugh. Toys.
What makes us laugh: His mismatched ears. His toddler attitude. How he grumbles at you when you tell him the fun is over or to stop his fresh puppy shenanigans. How he play wrestles his toys to occupy himself.
What he loves: Treats of all flavors. Toys of all kinds. Kongs of all shapes. Bones of all sizes.
His one high maintenance request: He enjoys sleeping with a box fan on. If you know, you know.
Stranger danger: Nah. Large and loud humans can be scary for a hot second. Warms up after approximately 15 seconds but you can cut that down to 5 seconds with a treat.
What he knows: Sit. “In your bed”.
What he’s working on: Stay/wait (hellllllo 2 second puppy attention span). Four on the floor. Being a confident boy in the car. Walking on the leash without simultaneously chewing it and zigzagging like a crazy man! Getting more comfortable facing the stairs and getting confident walking up and down them.
Dogs: We’re going to have to insist. They are his favorite thing. They bring out the best in him. He’s done well with every dog he’s met and lives to play.
Cats: Sure! He’s been fostered with two cats and leaves them be.
Kids: He’s been great with them!
House-trained: Getting there and working on it really hard!
Crate-trained: Yes, and does stellar! Exception: he will bark if he is in his crate but you are home. Exception to the exception: The barking does not apply to bed time.
Ideal home: An active bunch. He’s a social butterfly so people who will let him tag along! People who are dedicated to keep up with socialization and training so he can continue to be a breed ambassador. A home with another playful pup.
