Rescues in Action: Maverick

Maverick came into the Golden Retriever Rescue of Mid Florida when his "Mom" became seriously ill and could no longer care for him.
This 11-year-old cuddle bug is the social butterfly of the doggie park. Everyone that meets him falls instantly in love. There is not a person, place or thing that he doesn't like. Even the 13 year old cats that he lives with love him. They will snuggle up to him and Maverick lets them lick his face.
Maverick's foster Mom has put him on the green bean diet and he is proud of his new slim and trim body. Good food and exercise is all it takes to make this teddy bear feel good about himself.
Maverick has no bad habits - he is a tad afraid of thunder storms - but if he is near his humans he settles down and goes to sleep.  He doesn't get up on furniture and will sleep by the side of your bed. If you are looking for the perfect companion this gentle boy is the one for you. He knows nothing about distance - he only lives to be close.
