Watson and his four siblings hail from the town of San Juan del Obispo, just south of Antigua. Their mother lives with several other dogs on a rented property. The caretakers of the property told rescuer Francesca that the dogs were left by previous tenants. The dogs were all in extremely poor condition when Francesca began helping the family. All the adults have now been spayed, vaccinated, and wormed. Francesca brings the family dog food, as well.
We took this litter as they were very young and not yet fearful of people. Additionally, two of the puppies had severe eye problems, and it seemed likely that they would each lose at least one eye.
We brought Watson in at about 6 weeks of age. Watson was one of the pups with a severe eye issue. His eye had to be temporarily sutured shut and eye drops applied every two hours. He had to wear a miniature cone to prevent him from scratching the eye. The eye healed poorly, and Watson unfortunately lost his sight in the affected eye. Watson was first fostered with his brother Griffin and another pup, Noah. His second foster family has three young children and he loves to play with them. He has been socialized well, and is learning basic behaviors with treats and positive reinforcement. He is a sweet, friendly and affectionate puppy.
On June 8th the eye was removed and stitched shut. He is healing well and is almost ready for adoption. Watson is neutered, finished his puppy vaccines, and will be ready for adoption at the end of June.
