Sherlock D5098

Sherlock was rescued from a crowded shelter. He is smart, curious, confident and gorgeous. Super people friendly, alert, snuggly and loves attention but he needs a leader to guide him. He can get anxious and nervous (Llasa personality) and will nip if scared.   He does not like being pushed, carried or kissed.  No fast grabs. Head sensitive and will nip.  He is good with other small dogs with proper introductions on leash, but he wants to be the top dog (alpha) at home, especially with other male dogs. Sherlock is best as only dog in household.  Cannot coddle him and need guidance. No sofa space or he will guard his space.  He did well with other dogs during our testing and on walks, but not in home.  Loves walks and yard to go out for potty biz and sun.  He needs adult very experienced guardian only .Sherlock is sensitive and needs the guardian to be his leader with confidence (he will sense anxious/nervous person) and tell him what to do vs coddling (he will get confused). Guardian must be confident and guide him. He was leary and fearful of young kids (will nip). At home, he likes to follow person around but does not like his face petted and may nip if stressed. Sherlock needs access to fenced yard, no apt living. He needs daily exercise and someone home more or someone that can consistently give him a mid-day break. With our volunteers, he is friendly, walks well on leash and listens. Will snuggle in our laps (both women & men) when he trusts the person.

Sherlock wants to bond to confident person who will guide him and he will listen. Smart. At his foster home, we learned that Sherlock is very allergic to Dust Mites (in carpet). After many vet visits and holistic vets, he is now on raw diet only and herbs for his allergy. So he needs a home with no carpet to avoid dust mites. He needs experienced quiet adult home and NO KIDS.  Probably best as the only dog since he can be dog dominate.  At his foster, he is fine with their dogs, but they supervise and he listens. With any change of home, he needs time to adjust.  3 days to relax, 3 weeks to bond and 3 months.... he's home!
