It is not known how Maverick got his painful, disfiguring injuries. He could have been attacked on the street or involved in dog fighting.
Regardless of how it happened, veterinarians believe Maverick has been missing big pieces of his mouth and nose for a long time. Some of his teeth are missing, and part of his nasal cavity is exposed.
Program director for Long Way Home Pit Bull Rescue, Amanda Dowell, said they are glad that he is no longer in any pain from his injury.
But they are also sad because Maverick didn’t have anyone to help him while it was healing. Maverick has a hard time eating because of his injuries.
