Sherlock is (we believe) a Corgi/Lab mix.
Is Sherlock a dog that will play fetch for hours with you? Go on long walks with you? Run up and down the beach with you? Nope. He is just an elderly dog who wants to cuddle up with you. Tickle him under the chin and he’s good. He has had what appears to have been a bad life and just wants to know what a warm loving home feels like.
He is maybe 12 – 14 years old. He is a lovely guy with a sweet personality. He loves to be outside, and loves to walk, but has a very slow pace. He has arthritis and has a bit of trouble getting up and laying down after he has been out for a walk. He has some challenges with his vision and we suspect with his hearing too. He prefers to have someone home with him and he likes to stay close by you, either laying at your feet or up on the couch snuggled up (he needs to be lifted on to the couch). He loves other dogs and is totally fine with cats as well.
Sherlock has the usual aches and pains of old age but is otherwise healthy and is not currently on any medication. He has recently had dental work done and his teeth are now in good shape. Poor Sherlock does not deserve to be homeless – can you give him a retirement home? He will give you 100% love and loyalty in return.
All of our dogs are in private foster homes throughout Nova Scotia. We do not work out of a facility and are therefore not open to the public. The first step in adopting a dog is completion and approval of an application. Please visit our website at www.ASDRescue.com to complete an application and learn more about Atlantic Small Dog Rescue.
