Handsome Lincoln has a gorgeous, wavy black coat. But in the winter, he sometimes looks white, because he loves to roll around in the snow. A social boy, Lincoln enjoys being around people and is eager to please them. Although he likes to play with other dogs, he sometimes reacts with barking and lunging when he sees them while on a leash. However, Lincoln is a very smart boy who picks up on training cues quickly. Through training, he can now pass other dogs much more calmly. He wears a harness on his walks, because damage to his throat makes him breathe heavily.

Lincoln really enjoys food puzzles, which help him slow down his eating and keep his mind active. He has mild anxiety and is working on his car manners so he can be the perfect copilot. Lincoln was born in 2007 and would love to ride off into the sunset with you.

Lincoln has a generous sponsor who will cover his adoption fee.
