My Story

Date into Rescue: 08/29/2018

Reason for being in rescue: Lovingly surrendered by owners due to behavioral challenges especially regarding the two year old toddler in the home.

Special Needs: None noted

What kind of home would be best for me: Lincoln will only be placed in a home with very experienced dog owners. He must be the only animal in the house. He also has a strong preference toward women and would be best in a home where the lady of the house is his primary caregiver and coach. 

Lincoln has an extraordinary amount of potential in the right setting. He is eager to please and intelligent.  He's hungry for love and affection and stability.  He thrives with gentle direction and loves to learn new things.   

What is my personality like:  In the first 10 minutes - hesitant.  Then you throw a ball for him and your in.  

How do I act when I first meet new people: Cautious, but I warm up if you take it slow with me and if you bring a ball.

Tips and Tidbits: Lincoln has a known bite history. We know he is fearful of men. We are working to determine his other triggers. Lincoln is dog aggressive. We have not cat tested him, but based on his reaction to other dogs will not place him in a home with dogs. 

Notes from Lincoln's caregiver:  He walks well on a leash and loves car rides but he is hesitant about getting out.  I think it’s fear - of the unknown.  My personal opinion is all his behaviors are out of fear. He loves to play with anything that squeaks. He knows sit and shake and he is very eager to please.

House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained.  A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.

Potential Adopters

Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.

Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
