Watson is and 11 month, blue nose pitbull, and about 50 lbs. He loves people when he gets to know them, but gets nervous with other dogs when he is out and about. It is best if he goes to a home where he can be by himself or one with adult, female dogs. He is full of energy, and we are working with a trainer to work on impulse control and walking. Since we took him in for fostering about 2 months ago, he has turned into a completely different dog. He is very trainable and learns quickly, especially when there is consistent training. Sam Basso, our trainer, is willing to give free training to whoever is fostering him or to whoever gives him a home, provided they are local. This is Sam's information if anyone should want to contact him:
It would be best to contact him first if you are interested.
Watson was an emergency situation. A young girl could not take care of him, and had to leave him with her parents. He pretty much spent all of his time in a room, and was barely potty trained. When the parents told her to get rid of him, another foster took him in but was unable to take care of him for very long. When he was taken out of the first home, he started barking at the grass because he had NEVER seen it before. This is the kind of life he was leading. Since the former owner could not take him back, he was at risk of going to a shelter and we all know what happens when poor pitbulls get stuck in a shelter. He is a total lover, a cuddle bug, and he's super goofy. I have all kinds of wonderful pictures on his page. He is very partial to puzzle games, "go find it," which is where we hide toys and treats for him to sniff out, and a little bit of tug o' war. If you are active, and love a dog with spirit, Watson would be perfect for you.
He is neutered (we can provide those documents), and I am fairly certain he is up to date in his vaccinations. His owner emailed me a picture of them, so I hope that would be enough. Thank you, thank you so much for helping out, and taking the time to give this dog a chance.

Rescue Group Info...
We are a pending non-profit, no-kill rescue organization dedicated to rescuing and rehoming adoptable cats and dogs. We have over 40 years of combined rescue experience and knowledge.
We do not have a kennel / shelter type of facility. We believe the most effective and successful way to match families and pets is to foster them in our own homes. Ultimately fostering our rescue animals in homes rather than a kennel environment allows us to give you complete information on the pet's behavior and how well he / she will fit with your family and lifestyle.
At Valley Dogs we make every effort to place the right animal in the right home. To aid in this goal, we use trained Adoption Consultants to help you select the best match for your lifestyle. You will meet with an Adoption Consultant and discuss your lifestyle, activity level, expectations, likes/dislikes, and past experiences with animals. Your consultant will then recommend the best match for your family and your lifestyle.
