Goose and Maverick were found eating out of a trash can in a remote area of northern AZ. These boys were shy and friendly, clearly not used to much human interaction but very much craving it. From the moment we welcomed them into the Paw Placement family, they were nothing but sweet and loving. They were also unfamiliar with the world and many things our own pet dogs find normal - such as a leash, tile floors, cozy blankets, nutritious food. But these boys quickly learned what the good life looks like, and they are blossoming in their foster homes.
Maverick is loving and affectionate, goofy and eager to please, playful and energetic. He adores his doggy foster siblings, and we'd be hard pressed to find a home without another dog that we'd be willing to place him in. For the first 5 months of his life, Maverick knew nothing but life with his brother Goose and, while it would be unhealthy to keep the brothers together (google Sibling Syndrome if you're not sure why), it would be best to place both boys in a home with another dog as they rely so heavily on other dogs for comfort and security.
Goose and Maverick are working on their crate and house training in their foster homes, and are picking up quickly. They are also mastering their leash skills and basic house manners and, depending on how quickly they are adopted, will likely need to continue with this training in their forever homes as they are still puppies (LARGE puppies) at this point.
Though their breed is a mystery, they look like they might have some retriever, some chow chow, along with a mix of likely many other breeds. Their coats are similar to retriever coats, smoother and shorter than you'd expect from a chow. They will be large adults, they're about 50 pounds at 5-6 months old.
