Maverick won't even look into his rescuers eyes because he is so scared.
I am in tears. Just look into his eyes. The tiny puppy’s skin is literally cracking open and tough like stone. With every move he feels pain. His body is covered in sores from months of abuse and neglect. You can see in the photos that his feet are so swollen it's hard for him to walk. His skin is infected from head to toe. He has no fur whatsoever.
Today he has a name for the first time in his life, Maverick. Dallas Dog RRR immediately stepped in to save his tiny life. Maverick is extremely scared and timid. Since he only know humans to hurt him Maverick won’t even look into his rescuers eyes. He avoids eye contact and huddles in fear. But this all changes today!
As I am sure you know he will not only have to heal physically but emotionally as well. This will take time and funds. His demodex mange is one of the worst I have personally seen.
UPDATE 2/20/20: The fact that he won't look rescuers in the eyes tells me that we are dealing with prolonged abuse and neglect here.Maverick's skin is starting to heal. The cracks and scabs are closing. This is incredible news. Dallas Dog RRR will have to show Maverick that humans can be trusted and show him love. This will take time.
UPDATE 3/3/20: Well look how amazing this sweet boy doing. I know it may not look like much but this is a huge improvement from where he started. And he now can look rescuers and his foster in the eyes! He is leaning to trust humans again. But his care will continue.
