My name is Maverick. I am a medium-sized dog, about 1 1/2 years old. Probably a lab mix.
My brother Mingus and I came all the way from Cochise County, where we lived our life tied to a small chain. We didn’t even know what the inside of a house looked like until we came to Circle L Ranch Animal Rescue. We now know how to use a doggie door. We are both a little shy but are learning to trust people, and really do love them. We are also great with other dogs.
My brother Mingus found his forever home and now I’m looking for mine.
I still don’t enjoy riding in a car, but I know if someone works with me and shows me that car rides mean we are going somewhere fun, then I will enjoy it as much as you do. I do walk really good on a leash. I might pull a little but that is just because I’m so curious about all the smells. After all, when you have spent most of your life tied up you don’t get to see or smell to many great things.
So if you have an empty space in your home and heart and have a little patience with me, as I will have with you, please call Circle L Ranch at 928-273-7005, and ask them if you can meet me, Maverick.
