About Sherlock

Adoption Fee: $400
German Shepherd
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

German Shepherd lovers will swoon at the elegant good looks of our majestic boy, Sherlock. Just four years old, Sherlock found himself residing at NYCACC after his owners surrendered him without explanation. He arrived at the shelter underweight and susceptible to garden variety shelter viruses. His 'sniffles' quickly morphed into pneumonia, and thankfully he was sent to us for emergency medical care, instead of euthansia.%A0 After some time, Sherlock healed and settled into foster care nicely. We have enjoyed watching his outgoing personality unfold. He loves people and is friendly to strangers. He would be the ideal K9 companion to an active single or couple, who have large dog or Shepherd experience. Powerful breeds like German Shepherds, that have a work ethic hardwired into their DNA, require purposeful lifestyles that challenge their mental and physical faculties. They also need a strong leader to teach them Canine Good Citizenship. Sherlock has been a Training Superstar and has passed most of his CGC test. He is both food and praise motivated, and benefits mentally and physically from his ongoing training sessions. Adopters should be prepared to continue our work. Sherlock is typical German Shepherd, and has the classic brown and black short coat with saddle bag markings. He is petite for the breed standard. After a 10 pound weight gain, Sherlock has filled out nicely to 60 pounds. He could easily carry another 10 pounds of muscle, through healthy diet and exercise.%A0 Sherlock is an amazing dog, who exhibits the loyal, protective and extremely intelligent nature that is characteristic of the breed. He is in excellent health, has been neutered, and has received routine vaccinations and health screenings. He has been dewormed, microchipped.
