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!"

Daisy's nose knows how to save lives.
Since the Labrador was a puppy, she has been trained at the England-based charity Medical Detection Dogs to sniff out cancer and other fatal diseases in samples of breath, skin and urine, reports Advertiser and Review.
Now 10 years old, Daisy has successfully detected over 550 cases of cancer and is being awarded for her priceless contributions to the lives of others. The keen-nosed pup was recently given the Blue Cross Medal for her work in the field of cancer prevention and detection.
