Fenced acreage / fenced rural home only. Another playful dog in the home. No small dogs. His play style is very physical and rough. No kids. No cats. Maverick is Smart. Active. Athletic. Alert. Loves balls and squeaks and water. Has a huge play drive. He's also Nervous. Mouthy. Cautious. Unpredictable. Can be a resource guarder. He's interested in people but not partiicularly bonded to us even after 5 months. If you meet him, there will be no instant connection. He'll be curious, but you won't be able to pet him for a bit. (hours) Not until he feels safe and decides to approach you. He will probably never have a close bond with a person. Maverick needs someone who's experienced with dog handling and dog body language. Someone willing and able to put in the time to gain his trust and understand his triggers and manage his behaviours. Maverick absolutely must have another dog in an adoptive home. The dog needs to be playful, energetic, easy going. Willing to show Mav the ropes and put up with physical play. Maverick lives on a fenced acreage now and that life seems to suit. He is around horses but always on a leash as he wants to jump at them and would chase them if he could, He needs a secure yard or he will go off on adventures.
