aka “I Drooled Right on my Head??”

Maverick is a South African Boerboel (poss crossed with a Neo?) who is currently available for adoption. He was a real risk…he did horribly in the shelter, and would not allow me to touch him. I ignored my head and went with my heart…I didn’t see anything that made me feel that he was unsound, despite how it’s just not done, to take a dog that assesses this way. He has turned out to be a pussycat, excellent with dogs, cats and kids, and a puddin pop with his people and strangers alike. He was lost without his pack, not unusual for the breed. Maverick is a clown, boohooing for attention and with a 100% record of flopping a huge paw on you when asked. He’s going to make someone very happy.

UPDATE – Maverick went on a trial adoption on August 30 to his new family in Buffalo, NY. :)

    Oh he’s divine! Despite the drooly head LOL….. Thank goodness you followed your heart! Best wishes he finds his forever home real soon!

  • How funny you picked Maverick to comment on. He just went to his forever home in Buffalo NY yesterday. :) I took a few photos, will see if any are worth posting. Also got some of today’s rescues, am just about to review them. I hope that looking at some faces that got second chances at life (most of my dog pics are rescues) might help you through a rough day.

    Great capture Sam. I’m glad Maverick has found a trial adoption. I’m sure they will love him. Welcome to the APBT Lovers Group!

  • Thanks Ginny! So far they really do. He’s such a neat dog, if I were in a house of my own he wouldn’t have gone anywhere. :)
