Sully the Pitbull Has Recovered and Found a Home

Watertown – On the morning of June 4th, a pitbull mix wandered into Home Depot at the Arsenal Project in Watertown. In the weeks since, he has been in the care of Watertown’s Animal Control Officer Karen O’Reilly. After initially weighing just 26 pounds, the pooch, nicknamed “Sully,” has nearly doubled his weight.
