Maverick is just about 3 yrs old here. He had a terrible lower leg injury last winter. He slipped thru a pile of pallets, tore all the skin off and bruised the leg bone something terrible. Vet said it would have been better and less painful if he had broken it. He is recovered, after many, many months, has a bad scar there now. He is doing well and getting lighter in color. Maverick is a very pleasant dog, happy, loving and loyal. Maverick isn't the best guard dog, he thinks everyone is his friend.
