Sherlock is a friendly and playful 1-year-old Australian Cattle Dog mix. He has larger than life ears and gorgeous markings. Sherlock has boundless energy and loves to play, especially long games of fetch. Due to his active breed, he would love to find a family with time to exercise and train him.  Going for walks or long runs are his favorite!  When Sherlock first arrived at the PAWS Chicago Medical Center in April, he was diagnosed with heartworm and spent time in a foster home until he healed.  His foster family says he is very loving and worked with him on some obedience commands.  Sherlock would prefer to be the only dog in the home as he loves to soak up all the attention!  He is very intelligent and eager to please.  Sherlock is a darling boy who is sure to make a wonderful companion to a very lucky adopter.

Sherlock, along with many other adorable dogs and cats, will be available for adoption today at noon at the PAWS Chicago Lincoln Park Adoption Center, located at 1997 N. Clybourn Avenue in Chicago.
