Meet Maverick, Blue Ribbon News Pet of the Week

Maverick is gentle, intelligent and very handsome. After he gets on a proper diet to put some meat on his bones, he’s going to be one sharp-looking dog.

Maverick is looking for an extra-special home for the holidays. He’s heartworm positive, so he needs to get some treatments to restore him to full health. His heartworm treatments are being paid for by Rockwall Pets, plus his adoption fee has been waived.

You won’t find a more handsome dog for free!

He’s been in the Rockwall shelter for so long, he’s desperate to get outside and live like the real macho dog he is.

Make this holiday season one to remember by adopting Maverick from the Rockwall Animal Adoption Center at 1825 Airport Road. For more information, visit, e-mail or call 972-771-7750.
