We've met some pretty awesome dogs in our many years of rescue work, but Dr. Watson has to be one of the most amazing. He has an indentation on the side of his head, where he was obviously struck or had some kind of accident in the past, had bad teeth, which have since been removed, and was on his own for a while (and a very thin fellow) as a stray in rural Virginia--absolutely none of which has affected his wonderfully kind heart. Workers at the shelter where Watson ended up recognized his gentle soul and reached out to New Rattitude, and a local veterinary clinic donated all his vetting services, including removing his rotten teeth. Now that he's put on a little weight (he's currently 16 lbs.) and healed from his dental work, this sweet senior fellow, thought to be about 10 years old, is eagerly looking forward to a new chapter in his life--one in which he can love his people with abandon and be loved in return. A healthy and happy guy, Watson will lavish his affection on anyone who lets him, and he gets along with dogs, cats, and respectful children. He is completely housebroken and listens to basic commands. Calm enough to chill out on the weekend but with enough energy to take a long, daily walk, he wants nothing more than to be your faithful companion. If you're feeling like you might be just what Dr. Watson ordered, check out more pictures in his online album at http://imageevent.com/newrattitude/drwatson and then welcome him into your home to enjoy the life he so richly deserves.
