A few months ago, Maverick, the Golden Retriever touched the hearts of millions after workers at a Lowe's store helped Maverick's family find a wagon to help them take their dog on one final walk around the neighborhood. The nine-year-old retriever suffered from lymphoma as well as a nerve issue that prevented him from using his hind legs in his final months.
Maverick's rides through DeLand, a city outside of Orlando, was covered by his Facebook page 'Everybody Loves Maverick', which is liked by over 14,000 people.
His owner, Joey Maxwell, confirmed Maverick's passing in a post on Sunday morning.
People posted condolences for Maxwell's loss on Maverick's page.
