If you follow my Instagram or Twitter, you might have noticed my new addition to the family. But today I want to officially introduce everybody to my new puppy Maverick. I love all of our family pets, but Mav is my new obsession!
So as some of you might know, I have been helping a woman in Santa Monica by fostering puppies for her. In January she called me and asked me if I would mind taking another puppy that was just 4 weeks old and found under the freeway in South Central. Obviously, I said yes and when I got little Maverick, I was feeding him out of a syringe. He ended up getting Parvo, which is really dangerous for puppies and he after being in the hospital for a week he came back and we got him nice and healthy.
I ended up fostering him for longer than I usually do, but then realized that he was a little miracle pup I couldn’t let go! So now Maverick is officially a member of our family and I love the little guy! I’m not totally sure what breed he is, but his brindle coat seems to be quite the topic of conversation so let me know if you have any thoughts as to what his breed might be. :)
During his first few days at the house, I was a little nervous about how he would get along with Champ and Sarge, but they’ve grown to love and play with each other all day. Even though he’s the youngest of the bunch (and the least fluffy, LOL) I think Maverick keeps his older brothers on their paws! :)
