Dog of the Week: Sherlock

By Agrippina Fadel

Sherlock is a mellow fellow that enjoys car rides and loves the beach. If he could talk, he would say it is “Elementary!” that he is a perfect dog to adopt.

According to Broward County Animal Care, this brown American Staffordshire Terrier mix is about eight years old and weighs 72 pounds. Sherlock doesn’t shed too much and is a perfect cuddle buddy. He has been at the shelter since January.

This pup loves spending time with people and eagerly performs for treats. He enjoys long walks and is friendly with other dogs.

Sherlock is one of the shelter’s Senior Paws pets, so all his food, supplies, and vaccines are paid for the rest of his life.

Like many other large dogs at the Broward Animal Care and Adoption Center, Sherlock needs a kennel break. The shelter is running 20 dogs over capacity and needs the public to come out and adopt or foster pets.
