Watson was rescued as an abandoned dog at a veterinary clinic when he was 11 months old. He had a traumatic first few months in life that led to severe medical injuries. Those injuries required many months of rehabilitation. After his recovery, Watson’s new owner noticed his strong working drive and fearless attitude. It was at this time that he started training in search and rescue work. He enjoys the hunt for missing persons, as well as his reward toy with a good tug.
