Sherlock Hound (名探偵ホームズ, Meitantei Hōmuzu, lit. "Master Detective Holmes," "Detective Holmes," "Famous Detective," or "Sherlock Holmes," it depends on how you want to read it.) It's an anime series that had some directing by Hayoa Miyazaki('s help in creation), and it's based on Sir Arthur Ignatius Conan Doyle's book of Sherlock Holmes.

It's a series that ran from 1984 to 1985 ending with 26 episodes. It also aired as a theater preview on one of Hayao Miyazaki's movie, "Castle in the Sky." (I think?) 

This series` characters are a showcase of anthropomorphic dogs and are pretty cool in many different aspects.
