Biography

Lincoln ("Link") is an 11 month old neutered mix who needs a new home through no fault of his own. He's up to date on all of his shots until next year. He's sweet, smart, and eager to please but is very much still a puppy and needs a home that understands the training and work he will require.

He has gotten along with two other large dogs that I know of but has a rough and rambunctious play style. For that reason, I wouldn't recommend a family with little kids unless you're able to keep them separated while Link learns how to be gentle. I'm not sure how he is with cats.

He knows sit and lay down and will happily go into his crate for a treat. Very food motivated. However, he's not fully crate trained because he will still whine and bark but the duration is getting less everyday. As he's a puppy, I wouldn't trust him to be free while home alone or at night.

With a dog door, he's potty trained. Without one, he still needs to be taught how to let humans know he needs to go out.

The only "negative" is that he guards his food, chews, toys, etc from other dogs and will try to steal from them. The dog he lives with now just allows it to happen, so there haven't been any fights, but that is something to keep in mind.

I can give an adopter his food, leash, collar, and a 36" crate with the bed that's in it.
