Jan (and Dave) Booth here. I thought you’d like to hear about how well Maverick is doing. He has settled in wonderfully and we appreciate and love him more every day. He’s the whole package – smart, inquisitive, energetic (but not manic), affectionate and handsome, to boot. He’s learning how to play in a variety of ways and is enjoying agility classes. He likes to use his body and his brain; what a joy!

I’ve attached a couple of recent pix of him with two of our other dogs to show that we’re making good progress in blending the new group into a peaceable pack of four. (Sydney, our older female, has been showing him the ropes since day one.) We’re so happy to have him as part of our family!
