Maverick, and his littermate Archie, were surrendered to North Shore Animal League America when they were seven months old because their previous owner didn’t have the time to dedicate to the dogs. Both pups showed signs of lameness and their orthopedic radiographs revealed hip dysplasia.

The two brothers will likely need surgical intervention and/or physical therapy in their future to mitigate further damage and pain. They will certainly require joint supplements for the rest of their lives. Nevertheless, Maverick and Archie are fun-loving, big dogs with giant hearts of gold. If he could, Maverick would give you an affectionate smooch as a thank you for sponsoring him.

Maverick is not showing any signs of discomfort from his hip dysplasia, according to dad Anthony, and doesn’t have any trouble keeping up with his two canine siblings. They all enjoy long walks together and frequent visits to the dog park, and Maverick appreciates always having a playmate around. We are so pleased he continues to be his sweet self, as Anthony added, “Maverick’s high energy, and also very loving.”

Maverick has made a wonderful transition to his new home, reports dad, Anthony. Happily, Maverick has two dog siblings whom he adores, and who help him expend his boundless energy. He enjoys toys too, though he is capable of quickly stripping a heavy duty rope toy down to strands of yarn! Maverick is still growing into his bigger body, and his family is highly entertained by his sometimes clumsy antics. Says Anthony, “Having a one-year-old dog in the house has been very therapeutic. Maverick loves giving kisses, craves attention, and always brings a smile to everyone!”
