Sherlock is a handsome Australian Shepherd who is ready for his forever home. He is 5 years old, weighs 47 pounds, and has a unique diluted black tri coat with a full fluffy tail. Sherlock is housebroken, crate-trained, and he knows his basic obedience commands. He also walks great on the leash and truly enjoys car rides.
Sherlock absolutely adores people. He is pretty shy at first, but once he trusts you, he wants you to pet him and love on him nonstop! He is a low energy, high Velcro kind of guy. Sherlock loves long walks but loves “his person” even more! His favorite pastime is lounging on the couch while he watches his foster mom work throughout the day. As long as he’s close, he’s completely content! Sherlock would probably prefer to be the only dog in the household, but he does get along nicely with other calm dogs who don’t get in his personal space. He’s a great peaceful co-exister with other dogs- he won’t actively play but he is happy to have them around. Sherlock does fine around cats.
The ideal home for Sherlock is a calm, low-traffic, and quiet one. He would love to his share his time with a family who is ready to add a polite, calm, and walk-loving guy to their daily life. A fenced yard would be an extra bonus for him, but not required, as Sherlock always stays close by his person. Children over the age of 12 would be welcome. Cats are okay and so is another mellow dog pal. If Sherlock sounds like the perfect companion for you, apply today! Sherlock is fostered in Gotha, FL.
