Maverick is roughly 1.5 years old. He is very sweet and very high energy. He is great with our 2 year old daughter and our other dog (german shepherd). We took him in when a colleague could no longer care for him. Unfortunately, he has some behavior issues that were not disclosed to us. He has separation anxiety and needs to be crated in a heavy duty crate as he has broken out of the standard crates. If he is left alone, he will chew and/or dig. He is fully house trained, he has no food aggression and has never shown an ounce of aggression toward any adults, children or other animals. We unfortunately cannot give him the time and attention that he needs in order for him to learn and be trained properly. It breaks our hearts to have to do this but he deserves better than what we can give him at this time.
