Pet of the Week: Maverick

Maverick is an 8-year-old bull terrier mix who is a complete goofball with a one-of-a-kind smile! He likes to run and have a good time. He particularly likes to play with his toys! He loves having his butt scratched and will support you to ask for more. He would make a wonderful walking or running partner. He would really like to go on long hikes and explore the outdoors. In fact, he does very well in car rides and walking on a leash!

The Humane Society for Tacoma & Pierce County Adoption Center is open Tuesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. See all adoptable animals at Anyone interested in adopting can stop by the shelter at 2608 Center St., Tacoma. Don’t forget the busy kitten season!
