The awful things that humans do to dogs is unbelievable to us. Maverick is a sweet dog in the terrier mix family. This darling dog has severe health issues and has overcome more in his short life than any dog should ever have to overcome in any life it lives. When Maverick was a bit younger, he was found mostly dead and almost completely paralyzed. With a broken back, it’s assumed that he was hit by a car wandering the streets. However, his rescuers do have to admit that his injuries are consistent with not only a car accident but a severe beating and a life of abuse. While no one is sure what really did happen to Maverick, we all want to assume it was a terrible accident with a car. No one wants to assume this dog was beaten and left for dead.
On that note, this leaves us to assume he was hit by a car and left for dead. It just shows that people are cruel in so many instances. Fortunately, Maverick was found and he was saved. What’s even more awful, though, is that this sweet dog’s spinal cord was completely severed at least a month before he was rescued. He was suffering from old injuries and was then hit by a car a second time, this time breaking his legs. A wonderful person found this dog dying on the side of the road and had to do something. Taking the dog to the vet, he knew he had to save the dog’s life. Maverick has serious injuries he will never recover from, but he has wonderful spirits and he is just so grateful to be alive these days.
