Maverick, a gorgeous grey, five-year-old Weimaraner was once kept in a crate where he was malnourished and chewed his tail raw in frustration.
Then Dan Stallings found him on craigslist, and Dan ran a Weimaraner rescue so he adopted Maverick.
"[He] was a rescue that was abused and neglected and in terrible shape."
So he nursed Maverick back to health and started taking him to dog shows.
And eventually Maverick competed in the Westminster dog show!!
He didn't win any awards but at least he was there! His rags to riches story is an amazing one.
We're so proud of you, Maverick and so glad you're happy and safe now!
