Maverick went to his first show and won a 4 point major from the 12-18 month class.  Maverick went to his second show February 10, 2007 and won a 3 point major.  Maverick  finished August 18, 2007.  He won the points at the majority of the shows he was at.  He was always owner handled by KC.   

First weekend out as a special, Maverick won Best Opposite Sex, over 31 males, at the Midwest Borzoi Club Specialty November 17, 2007, owner handled.  During 2008, 2009 and 2010, we competed in performance events, finishing the AKC and ASFA field championships, two rally titles, and the obedience Beginners-Novice (BN) title. I enjoyed taking Maverick to the BCOA National specialties in 2009 & 2010, competing in conformation Best of Breed, lure coursing, obedience and in the triathlon.

At the 2011 BCOA National Specialty, Maverick, won 4th place in the triathlon, and made 2 cuts in the Best of Breed conformation class.  August 12, 2011, Maverick won Select Dog for 3 Grand Champion points.  The next day, he won Best of Breed at the Midwest Borzoi Club Specialty and a Group IV, plus 5 GCH points.   On 9-24-2011, Maverick earned his CD.  At the January 2012 MBC Specialty, Maverick won an Award of Merit, owner handled.  On February 19, 2012 Maverick earned his Rally Excellent title with 3 good scores in 3 trials.   Maverick finished his Grand Champion (GCH) title with 4 majors, in June 2012.  This is Maverick's 12th title.  At the 2013 BCOA National Specialty, Maverick placed 4th in a large Veterans class and competed in the 2013 triathlon where he finished 6th out of 14 dogs.  I retired Maverick from competition.  We enjoyed three more years of his companionship, taking walks together, having him in the house with us.  Maverick was our super dog - he did everything exceptionally well.

Maverick passed away suddenly, August 28, 2016.  What a wonderful journey of nearly eleven years, we had together.
