Westminster Kennel Club Dog show is known, for its
purebred dogs. Dog’s are hand fed
filet mignon, given the best shampoos,
spa treatments and ultimate pampering.
Maverick is one of those rags to riches stories.
He was found on Craigslist of all places. He
was in very bad shape.
Maverick hit the big time when
he was entered in the Westminster
Kennel Club Dog Show.
“[He] was a rescue that was abused and neglected and in terrible shape,” Maverick’s owner, Dan Stallings, told ABC News.
Maverick’s previous owners kept him in a crate for years.
He was so thin you could see his ribs. His nose was infected and he’d chewed his own tail raw, but Stallings nursed him back to health and their bond is now palpable.
Five months after rescuing Maverick, Stallings started entering him in shows, and Maverick started winning, making it to the biggest stage of all.
“I can’t even imagine [if he wins],” said Stallings. “That would really tear me up. I’d be so happy for him.”
As Stallings watched nervously, Maverick and his trainer paraded before the judge today. But in the end, the judge picked another dog.
Congratulations Maverick your a true
winner in my book.A new life
a new owner and the start of
a beautiful bond.
