Rescue Me ID: 14-10-18-00454Sherlock (male)

Old English Sheepdog Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Sherlock! Breed: OES/Poodle Gender: male Adoption Fee: $350 Date into Rescue: 7/31/14 Reason for being in rescue: Owner release Foster location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC Special Needs? YES -Behavior Weight: Est 50 lbs Height: Est 25 ' What is my personality like? Because of Sherlocks' history of shock-collar training, he has unfortunately developed some bad, and quite frankly, sad, habits. After being assessed by a trainer, we believe it will take several months, possibly years to undo the damage that has been done to this guy. He is very strong on a leash but will walk alongside you, especially when he is ... (Read More)wearing a harness. Commands he knows: sit, wait (stay), up (stand up from laying down), down (to lay down), leave-it (walk away from whatever it is he's smelling, eating, doing etc.), kennel (go to his kennel), heel, here (his recall/come). There are a few other commands that he knew like 'place' and 'look sharp' but the previous owner did not reinforce these commands. Sherlock does have some resource guarding tendencies, especially inside of his crate over his food bowl. Also, according to what his previous owner witnessed with him, he does not like to be approached while he is lying down. He will growl, show teeth and or bite. We have not seen this at the farm, however farm-life and home-life are two different things, and he may resort to this behavior again once he is back in a home. Also according to his behavior with his previous owner, he could not be bathed or groomed without a muzzle. We were able to do both without a muzzle here, but again he is out of his comfort zone, and sometimes dog's do not show their 'true nature' until they are comfortable. On a positive note, Sherlock is a happy, affectionate dog. There is much more to him than some bad habits, he loves attention. Sherlock is house and crate trained, and is VERY well mannered indoors. He really is a sweet dog who could make someone a wonderful companion, if you are willing to put in a little time and effort. Who I am seeking: Sherlock must be adopted by someone who is a very experienced dog-owner. Preferably someone who has experience with the breed and with the behaviors that we are describing. He must be an only dog - other animals overwhelm him and spark some of these bad habits of his. Age: est 5 years old Please understand that these are rescued dogs, and sometimes their ages are only a guess. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture, and not to discriminate against older dogs. You never know which dog will steal your heart when you meet them! How I act when I first meet new people: Please note - we do not ship dogs. If you are interested in adopting, please take a look at the distance between the foster home location and your location and make sure you are willing to make that trip.
