Maverick is a double dilute, meaning someone bred a blue merle Aussie to another blue merle Aussie. This results in some puppies from every litter having major health concerns.  Maverick is totally deaf and about 90% blind (it’s felt he can possibly see shadows but nothing else).

Many double dilute dogs (or double merles) have varying degrees of neurological issues. Maverick is…well, different, for sure.

He cannot live safely in a normal home environment. He needs a place where he is contained safely 24/7. He will NOT stop when obstacles are in his way and will attempt to climb whatever he comes across. He will climb your fence, your oven, people sometimes, book shelves….anything.

He is now safe in his current foster home where he has everything he needs, and is so very, very loved!

Maverick’s monthly costs include a special raw food diet for his very sensitive stomach. His foster home very kindly covers his toys (he needs toys that will keep his brain active and engaged), and his bones (he loves, loves, loves to chew).  If you can help cover Maverick’s food bill each month he would very much appreciate it!

Monthly costs:  Approx.$100
