In honor of Adopt-a-Senior-Pet Month, we bring you a distinguished senior pet looking for a loving place to spend forever. Today, meet Sherlock, a 10-year-old Labrador/pointer mix currently residing at the San Francisco SPCA.

Sherlock would be so thankful to have a forever home before his 11th birthday on Jan. 8. A comfortable home to relax and spend his golden years, he definitely deserves these things and more.

“When he first came to our shelter in mid-October he was severely undernourished,” says Krista Maloney, media relations specialist for the shelter, who says that the pup was given up by his previous owner. “Sherlock has truly thrived during the month he’s spent at the San Francisco SPCA, and we’re happy to report that he’s gained weight and is ready for a second chance at a forever home!”

The dog, who prefers now to eat his food alone versus in a group setting, needs a companion who’s ready to give him lots of love, attention, and exercise – but at a slow pace, please. A leisurely stroll at the park? Sherlock is in! He’s as loyal as they come, so if you’re ready to have an instant buddy, contact the shelter at 415-522-3500 for more information on how to adopt him.

Adopting a pet is an amazing experience – and a big decision! Before bringing a pet into your home, it’s important to consider your family circumstances and do your research.
