What kind of home would be best for me: We are seeking a home with an experienced dog owner and someone who is home more than they're away. Maverick is incredibly shy and cautious about people. He is also a known resource guarder who will snap if he is surprised. Given this, he needs a very experienced owner where there are no children in the home.
What is my personality like: Maverick is a quiet boy for an 18 month old labradoodle. He enjoys going on walks, but is never interested in being far from his people. Maverick is slow to trust. When he trusts you, he trusts you completely. But earning this level of trust takes a while. Maverick is very cautious about new people. He is not a dog that a stranger can walk up to and pet. He is also unpredictable with children.
We believe that Maverick has a lot of positive personality to show. He is working on overcoming his fears, but it is a process. Maverick needs a very patient and experienced owner who will work with him. He also needs a home where there are few visitors and where he can live an active lifestyle.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Very timid. Maverick is working on building confidence, but is very shy when he meets new people.
Tips and Tidbits: Maverick can be a great dog in the right home. He needs a patient, experienced owner who will give him a chance.
House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
