Sherlock is a smaller Airedale at around 45lbs. He lived all six years of his life on the same farm, where his job was siring puppies for sale. Times are hard, sales are down, and the owner decided to retire Sherlock and get out of Airedale breeding. He was listed on Craigslist, and that’s how he became an ATRA ‘Dale.
Sherlock is a happy, good-natured dude who rides well and knows some very basic tricks like “sit” and “paw”. He had mild heartworm disease, a urinary tract infection, and a double ear infection at intake, for which he is receiving treatment; one ear will require surgery, the UTI has resolved, and the heartworm treatment is underway. His biggest issues are that he looks like an unshorn sheep and lifts his leg on anyone or anything that doesn’t get out of the way fast enough.
Sherlock needs a foster home where he can get out and about; he’ll chase smaller animals and should be tested with other dogs. A belly band to stop the leg-lifting is definitely in order. If you can give him a place to crash for a while, or forever, please contact Mary Huntsman, Kentucky Coordinator, at email@example.com, or 606-224-9066.
