Meet Sherlock- adoption pending

Sherlock is a friendly 70lb, 6-7 year old bluetick coonhound mix. He absolutely loves all people, and makes it his goal on every walk he takes to introduce himself. Sherlock’s hobbies include meals, naps, rolling in the grass on warm fall days, and hunting for dog treat remnants left by his fellow dog fosters. He also likes to play low-key fetch and tug. He has done well with other dogs, but can be protective of his food bowl and bones – he really loves his food all for himself. He has also done well for his cat introductions. Sherlock is good on leash, and despite being a bit clumsy (loveably so), enjoys romping around in the grass on cool days. Sherlock would love a home with lots of human interaction. He is most interested in what his people are doing when he’s not napping.

When Sherlock came to us in early May, he was heartworm positive with clinical symptoms. Since then, he’s undergone treatment and now tests negative. He still coughs on occasion, but it is likely that this will improve with time as his lungs repair themselves, post-heartworm disease. With his clean bill of health, Sherlock is now in search of his new humans!

If you are interested in adopting Sherlock, please visit our website at www.rchsks.org and click on “Adopting a Pet” on the left side. You will be asked to complete a few forms. By filling out these forms, you are not committing yourselves to the pet you're interested in; it's a screening process that must be completed before you meet the dog. Please do this BEFORE calling. Our voicemail is only checked periodically and you can reach us much faster through our website. Thank you!
