Watson is a big sweetie. When I first rescued him he was covered in fleas, ticks, hairless patches of skin from scratching so much. He looked like a teddy bear though and was so docile. He was raised around cats and has been around them a few times since. He’s not aggressive, just chases them and licks them.
I knew his mother was full bred Rottweiler. But now 2 years later he looks more like a Greater Swiss Mountain dog. I don’t know if anything happened to him with a man; but he is very nervous around them. Never has been aggressive towards anyone. Just anxious around them. Warms up to women pretty quickly. LOVES kids. He is territorial around his food. But never aggressive.
He is gentle and VERY loving when he gets to know you. He takes a little bit to warm up to you. But then he’s hooked. Very protective. Around 100lbs and just turned 2. So he’s still very playful and has energy for a bit. He eats, plays for about an hour then he’s good to sleep for awhile. (Apparently that’s the Greater Swiss in him. He doesn’t need a lot of exercise. His size makes him mostly a lazy dog.) It doesn’t take much to please him. Scratching his chest bone is his hot spot and smells are his thing. He LOVES hair products, cologne, lotion,etc. And any food smells he LOVES.
He’s a great alarm! Has a very deep loud bark, so it’s nice knowing no one will bother me. Lol, but EVERYTIME people meet him they always talk about how adorable he is. And once you win him over he’ll forget what boundaries are. He comes with the biggest crate I could find. He stays in it while I’m at work. It’s actually his safe space and where he goes when he gets in trouble too. He’s had some training and when I’m consistent he does very well. He is VERY food motivated though. In training when he was nervous about trying something they had my other dog do it first and he followed suit. He learns pretty quickly. Was housebroken in less than 24hrs. Very smart! Does weaving and tunnel tricks with agility training.
Honestly it will be very hard to re-home him. But I have to move out of the country in a month and he can’t go with me. I just want him to have a good home. He comes with his crate, some toys, collar, thunder vest, bed, brush, slow feeder bowl, brush, agility kit if you want it.
