I’m in foster. Submit an application to start the online adoption counseling process.

Please read the info below before applying to adopt!

  • Animal ID#: A307374
  • Dog Name: Maverick
  • Dog Sex: Male
  • Approximate Age: 10 years
  • This guy is fabulous! He’s so mannerly, easy-breezy, walks great on leash and is ready to be a couch potato. He always gives his side or butt for some scratches! We suspect he would be OK with mannerly children. He’s absolutely thriving in a foster home, as you can see in the images below, and he’s ready to make a forever family smile!

Submit an application to start the online adoption counseling process or to find out more about Maverick.

Meeting Dogs at the Shelter

The shelter’s kennels are loud, stressful places for dogs. Some dogs express that stress by exhibiting behavior inside a kennel that they will not show otherwise. Please ask to take the dog you are interested into a play yard and spend some time getting to know him or her in that more relaxed environment. For more information on meeting dogs at the shelter, please read this article.
