Meet Watkins. He is an abandoned, critically ill puppy found in Grundy, Va. Buchanan Co. Humane Society and Appalachian Animal Health Clinic are taking care of him.

He is in critical condition and needs your support. 

No contribution is too small!

"Morning fun... They had just finished playing tug-o-war with a towel they found on the bathroom floor ( who left it there remains a mystery) . The little black one is Baby, a rescue from a puppy-mill in a blizzard! Watkins' life and happiness is surely a gift and was made possible by all who love and care for him. So humbling to see him playing after seeing him fighting for his life. An amazing pup.

"Day 6- Watkins is learning lots of fun things. Mocha has showed him how to drink from the toilet after she opens the door and lifts the lid for him. Yet, Mocha requires a filtered water bowl. He played outside and wasn't frightened of the neighborhood noises. He was focused on smelling. Nothing was going to interrupt his ability to sniff. He has discovered the toy container and went through several until he found the one he wanted to drop in Mocha's filtered water bowl. It evidently was the perfect one for him to drown and he did it very deliberately and gracefully. Said stuffed toy is now hanging outside on the fence to dry.
Have I mentioned we have a foster kitten? Watkins has met him and thankfully wasn't interested in putting him in Mocha's water bowl. The kitten is much quicker than my ability to lunge for my cell phone to get a picture of him with Watkins...but the two seem like they are going to be friends so I expect that a picture of them will be coming soon. Hope your Saturday is as exciting as ours!

Stephanie and Watkins"
Saturday drive. Buckle up for safety!

Stephanie, I don't have words to express how happy I am that people like you exist to help dogs such as Watkins, you are amazing. I follow Watkins progress everyday, Ive cried many times over him but your updates have also brought so much joy, I have donated and rounded up all my friends to do the same. Ive posted his beautiful face on my own basset hounds instagram page and spread his story to fellow basset owners, many of them have also donated. I will continue to donate for him and should he pull through I will keep on donating for his rehabilitation xx

I donated last week and am really saddened to see Watkins' condition deteriorating. As a basset owner its heartbreaking to look at this poor boy. Can anyone clear up what exactly caused him to lose all his fur and become swollen etc? I have looked on this page and others but can't seem to find anything. I understand that he was abused but what could cause such horrific injuries? What happened to him?
