About Me: Can you be the Watson to my Sherlock? I'm a lower energy gal, love to cuddle and would like a family that can give me a lot of affection. My current foster home knows I just love being around people, and I let them know by whining when they leave me to go out. Just a bit though, to remind them that I love them. I greet other dogs and rabbits when I see them, of course, and have been good with kids as young as 3. I think I'd like older children though, that can teach me to play over time. If you're looking for a cuddly companion that can sit, lay down, shake a paw and be redirected to chewing bones instead of your items, maybe I'm your gal?

Health Notes: Sherlock came to hart from our target rescue community a little on the thin side, but overall healthy. While in care, she developed a yeast infection on her tail that has since been treated. Sherlock is up to date on DACPP, Bordatella, Rabies and is spayed and microchipped.

Behavior Notes: Sherlock is a pretty calm girl. She doesn't know how to play, so would love a family who could teach her. She enjoys bones and chews, and she can guard them a little bit if you go to take them away, but will eventually give them up. So teaching her a drop cue would be great. She hasn't shown any aggression in this, she just holds it away from you out of reach. She does like people, but when she gets stressed she will remove herself from the situation - in her foster home she goes to her crate or to the basement. We encourage this behavior as she is removing herself without human intervention, and it's a safe choice on her part. She is crate trained, and uses the crate all the time, she is also good loose in the house. She is fully house trained. She currently lives with no pets. She did temporarily live with another of hart's foster dogs, and a small dog. She did need proper, slow introductions but that dog was also dog selective. So, we feel that with another dog in the home, proper slow introductions are a good idea. She is untested with cats. She is good with children. She is fearful of loud noises, she will hide. She knows basic commands. She loves affection, and is very cuddly. She does need mental stimulation, to help with boredom, or she'll find things to chew on that are not appropriate.
