A 12-year-old German shepherd is expected to make a full recovery after being buried in a sinkhole for three days.

Maverick was reported missing by his family after he wandered from his home in Parkville, Missouri.

After looking for three days, the owners herd a noise coming from under the ground near a road. Their dog was stuck in a drain pipe.

A rescue crew spent almost two hours carefully digging Maverick out. When he finally surfaced, he was weak and severely dehydrated.

Thankfully, his veterinarian was able to stabilize Maverick and he’s now recovering at home.
