There are a couple of older dogs over at TAS West who have been waiting for a while now for someone to notice them and take them home. So, Ashley - expectant mother and dog rescuer extraordinaire with T.E.A.M. dog rescue - and I decided to head over there and spend some time with them.
Here's Maverick, a handsome ten year German Shepherd who still has the energy of a dog half his age. He got his tail chopped off at some point so now he's got a stubby. He's extremely alert and likes to have something to do and you can tell he's always thinking about stuff being the smart GSD that he is. Maverick is an older dog who will definitely be able to learn new tricks.
Here he is walking with Ashley. He's walking ahead of her but keeping pace and not pulling. Not bad for no formal training on his part:
And here he is chillin':
The best way to check on the adoption status of this dog (and other dogs and cats and other small domestic animals) is to visit Toronto Animal Services adoption website or call 416 338-6271 for the Toronto Animal Services West shelter. If the dog is no longer on the TAS adoption website, it's probably because it's been adopted already.
