A COLORADO woman suffering from terminal breast cancer has made a TV appeal in an attempt to find a new home for her beloved dog.
Pat Cudd fell in love with her dog Sherlock when she adopted him as a puppy four years ago.
Sherlock, a pit bull mix, was adopted from the Longmont Humane Society.
"He was sitting on this cot and just looked forlorn," she told ABC news.
"My son and I looked at him and just fell in love."
She claims pit bulls are often misunderstood and that Sherlock's next owner will be happy.
She said that despite her fight with cancer, her dog has given her a reason to live.
"He gives it right back to you when you're affectionate to him — he's right there for you," she said. "He's changed my life. He's made my life bearable. He's a reason to live."
"He's changed my life. He's made my life bearable. He's a reason to live.
Cudd says the dog will need an active new owner, as he's very energetic.
"An ideal home would definitely be a family that likes to be active, sometimes, you can see him, he's an athletic dog, he's an energetic dog."
Since the segment was broadcast Cudd has been inundated with Emails from dog lovers offering to help her.
