It was just about the end of the road for him when we first met. He wouldn't bond with anyone and was terrified and growled at everyone and everything. He had no idea how to be a dog and couldn't let himself relax. I don't know what it was, but I was drawn to him. With little information and very low expectations, I volunteered to read to him at FOT where he was in boarding, waiting to learn if he would ever be part of a family again.

We connected instantly. I think he knew that I came with no objective, no judgement, no alterior motive other then to give him comfort and be a friend. There was no way I was leaving him. He gave me his paw with eyes begging for help. I called Emma, put him in my car and crossed my fingers that Vince, Levi, or my home wouldn't make his situation worse. It only took a few days before we knew he was never leaving us.

Fast forward about 10 months later and he is a completely different dog. Maverick loves laying on the couch, chewing on bones, playing with toys- all things he was far too scared to even attempt when we brought him home. He loves getting spoiled by grandma and grandpa when we visit NJ. He isn't afraid to investigate strange objects and cautiously approaches new people who visit. He is a definite mama's boy and his favorite place is cuddled up with me under the covers in bed. He can't contain his excitement when I come home each day and there's nothing better then seeing him sprint to me from across the yard. He has taught me so much and he continues to grow and surprise me everyday!
