A Samoyed/Great Pyrenees mix named Sherlock was just one day away from being put down in a rural Tennessee shelter when he was plucked from danger by Nashville’s Big Fluffy Dog Rescue. Instead of simply putting Sherlock up for adoption, they’ve decided to train him to be a therapy dog for an 8-year-old autistic boy. In just a few weeks, he’ll be on his way to his new life. . .which is astonishing, since his life was so nearly cut short.
