Someone to love: Maverick

Maverick, a 6-year-old Shih Tzu mix looks like a tough guy, but is actually just a shy guy looking for love. His life in a puppy mill before coming to Arizona Animal Welfare League & SPCA was not very nice, so he’s still trying to figure out how wonderful life and people can be. Maverick is learning to like affection, even though he flinches when people reach down to pet him. His favorite things are toys, especially squeaky toys. He should do well with most other dogs and maybe even cats.

Maverick is currently in the Homeward Bound Foster program so if you would like to meet him contact his foster mom, Sharon, at (480) 540-6031 or at His adoption fee is $60.
