Watson Wants a Home

Most cute puppies get adopted quickly, but Watson is still living at the shelter after several weeks.

Watson came to the shelter a few weeks ago with his big brother, Chester, and I was just so sure he’d get adopted immediately like many puppies do. Sadly, that hasn’t happened and Watson is still in a cage in the puppy room, awaiting a good home.

Watson is a young Lab Mix who loves to play, as you can see from the pictures, but he is very sad and scared when left alone in his cage. He just shakes and shivers until someone comes to play with him or scratch him behind the ears. This poor, sweet boy really needs a home soon. I’m not sure of his age, but he is very young and absolutely adorable.

If you’re interested in adopting this dog, please visit the at 1755 County Services Road (off Cedar Mountain Road). The shelter is open Tuesday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sunday from 2 to 5 p.m. They are closed on Monday.   

The adoption fee for all dogs and cats is $25. All pets are required to be spayed or neutered within six months of adoption. Yearly rabies vaccinations are also required. The Douglas County Animal Shelter can be reached by calling 770-942-5961. To learn about other animals available for adoption from the Douglas County Animal Control, view their adoptable pet list.

I believe Watson did get adopted, but there are many other adorable puppies at the shelter.
