Maverick was born on Sept 11, 2009 and came from a military family that moved a lot. He lived with a Boxer, so he's OK with other dogs, and he loves children, car rides, and since he came from Germany, he's even flown on a plane. He's very energetic for his size, but is very sad right now as his sibling was adopted. Meet Maverick in person at the Huron County Humane Society located at 246 Woodlawn Ave (Rt. 18), Norwalk. Open Tuesday 1-6, Wednesday-Saturday 1-5; Closed Sunday Monday & Holidays.

RIP ELWOOD, WORLD'S UGLIEST DOG
Elwood, the New Jersey Chinese crested / Chihuahua mix has died at the age of 8. Elwood was crowned the world's ugliest dog in 2007 and later became the topic of a children's book preaching acceptance. His owner, Karen Quigley, says he died unexpectedly Thanksgiving morning. Elwood was dark colored and hairless — save for a puff of white fur resembling a Mohawk on his head. He was often referred to by fans as Yoda, or E.T., for his resemblance to those famous science-fiction characters. Quigley had rescued Elwood in 2005, when he was about nine months old. "The breeder was going to euthanize him because she thought he was too ugly to sell," Quigley has said. During his life, he appeared at more than 200 events that helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for animal rescue groups and nonprofit animal organizations.
RIP GIANT GEORGE
Giant George died peacefully on Thursday, October 17, surrounded by loved ones, one month before his eighth birthday. Giant George was officially verified by Guinness World Records as the World's Biggest Dog and the World's Tallest Dog. It wasn't long before George had made larger-than-life appearances on the Oprah Winfrey Show & Live with Regis & Kelly and started working on his first book. George measured 42 5/8 inches high at the midpoint of the neck and he weighed 250 pounds, which is about 100 pounds more than an average Great Dane.
At home he slept in a queen-sized bed, and one of his hobbies was to ride around his family's neighborhood in a golf cart. While traveling to Chicago for his 2010 appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show, George was given a row of three airline seats to himself. He caused a commotion with fellow passengers visiting him to take photographs, and there were so many people coming to the front of the plane, the pilot ended up illuminating the 'fasten seat-belt' sign to get everyone to sit down.
2013 UGLIEST DOG ISN’T THAT UGLY
The World’s Ugliest Dog ® for 2013 is a four-year-old mutt mix, part beagle, basset and boxer named Walle who stole the title with his huge head, short thick stature which includes a hump back and duck waddle. A judge noted that, "This dog looked like he's been photo shopped with pieces from various dogs and maybe a few other animals." Walle waddled away with $1,500 and he’ll be making the talk show rounds this week. Some people are complaining that this year's World's Ugliest Dog title went to a dog that was far from the ugliest.
