Sherlock, a five-year-old pit bull mix, is on the brink of losing the most important person in his life...his beloved guardian, Pat, is in the end stages of cancer and her days are numbered.

As the end all-too-quickly approaches, Pat is faced with the gut-wrenching fear that her constant companion will not be safely in a home after she is gone. The last thing that she wants to consider is the unthinkable...that her dog might be forced to go to a shelter if a new guardian cannot be secured.

Right now, Pat is out of the hospital, but soon, she will be going to hospice - away from her best friend for likely the final time.

Sherlock has been Pat's rock throughout her difficult, painful treatments - she wants nothing more than to return the favor and secure him a loving home.

The following words were shared about Sherlock:

Sherlock has basic obedience training and is housebroken. He loves people but has never been around young children. He loves long walks and cuddling on the couch. He is such a sweetheart. Sherlock would do best in a home with no other pets.

Well mannered, sweetheart of a boy who can't comprehend that soon his human will be gone.

Efforts to find Sherlock a home, thus far, have been fruitless - please take a moment to network Sherlock's information...his guardian deserves the peace of mind in knowing that her beloved companion will be safe after she is gone.

Contact and location:

Sherlock is in Fort Collins, Colorado.
