Pets of the Week!


 Maverick Collage

Maverick is a 1 year old male Heeler mix. Maverick has a tendency to be fearful of new people and places. As long as you let him go at his own pace and don't rush him, he overcomes these fears quickly. We are recommending Maverick go to a home with no small children, as going slow and understanding boundaries are not concepts young children easily grasp. Maverick is extremely intellegent and intuitive. He learns very quickly and knows what you want almost before you do! Maverick would be easy to train, especially with the help of a professional. Wind River Tails and Trails is offering 50% off of an in-home consultation this week to the lucky person who adopts Maverick.
