Dog Was Treated So Badly Before That He’s Terrified To Step Into His New Home

The dog looked as if he were dead on the side of the road. But Watson was alive, just severely neglected and mistreated. Rescuers were about to find out he had no idea how to even act like a normal dog. You’re about to see how the dog was finally able to take comfort in his new surroundings.

Watson was found on the side of the road, and they thought he was dead. But when they approached, they saw that he was still breathing.

A local rescuer arrived and immediately rushed the dog to get help. Watson was in such bad shape he barely acknowledged the people around him.

The vet noticed that Watson had all kinds of problems: mange, missing teeth, heartworms, heart disease, and he was also severely emaciated. But the dog started to show signs of life just being in a safe place.

Watson was then taken in by Houston K-911 Rescue which found him a foster mom. But when he first arrived at his new home, he was very hesitant and had no idea what to do.

He acted like he’d never been inside a house before. He wouldn’t even lie in his doggy bed the first day. But just a few days later, he started to come around and make himself at home.

They decided to throw Watson a party to pamper the dog who’d never been pampered before in his life. And it looks like he really enjoyed it!

And there were plenty of dog treats to be eaten. 🙂

His condition must improve before being put up for adoption, but he is well on his way. In the meantime, he’s enjoying the life he was always meant to have.

It just goes to show that it’s never too late to help a dog in need.
