Pet of the Week: Maverick

Maverick is an young guy who loves affection. According to Cheyenne Animal Shelter staffers, he thinks of himself as a “macho man.”

He is a tan, white, and black German Shepard mix that is only three years old. Maverick is a neutered male in need of a forever home.

He is a fun, outgoing dog that is sure to keep you on your toes. He has a big personality and would also make a good watchdog.


He is particular with his dog friends, so it might take some time for him to get used to other dogs in the household. He would also best be paired with with older children, as he has sensitive ears and he is cautious when people want to touch them.

He will definitely need lots of room to run and play, but his favorite pastime is lounging around the house. Staffers say that he has a keen nose and enjoys walks that allow him to explore the land.

This handsome boy is sure to bring much love into your home. To learn more about Maverick and other adoptable pets nearby, contact the Cheyenne Animal Shelter or visit the Petfinder page.
