Sherlock Holmes

Who’s on the case for a forever home? Sherlock Holmes, I presume!

Meet Sherlock Holmes, the sweetest detective on four paws. This 4-year-old mixed breed male, weighing in at 50 pounds, is always sporting a wagging tail and a big smile. Gentle and affectionate, Sherlock is eager to solve the mystery of finding his forever family. Sherlock is a delightful blend of mellow and playful, maintaining an ideal balance. He appears to be house-trained with impeccable manners, sitting quietly and politely for treats. Though generally well-behaved, he can be a strong puller on the leash, particularly when he spots his arch-enemies, the squirrels.

Sherlock enjoys playing with other dogs and making new friends. Currently, he is undergoing heartworm treatment, which is completely funded with no cost to his adopter. Sherlock’s heart is as big as his curiosity, and he’s ready to share it with a loving home. Visit him at the Palmetto Adoption Center and see if you can crack the case of this perfect pup! He comes neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped.
