Hello everyone, my name is Lincoln. I currently live with a lady friend of mine, but we are just friends. She is too old and grumpy for me. There is also a cat that runs around here but she does not come around much. I like to lay on your feet, or even better, on your lap and watch T.V. I am really into the show Wolves and Warriors. I like to howl along with the wolves. I love to get treats and be told I am a good boy. My foster mom has taught me to sit and to lay. We are also working on walking better on a leash. I’m getting the hang of it, but I still like to try to walk between her legs at times. It’s kinda funny to see her try to weave around me and escape. I am fully housebroken, and kennel trained. I also know how to tell you that I need to go out. At night, my fosters have me sleep in my kennel, which I do not mind at all. I like quiet places, but their bed looks real comfy, too. I got up there the other day and tried to take a nap, but I was busted. I love kids, and I love to play with them. There is a 6-year-old here that likes to play, and she gives great hugs. She has lots of toys, so I play with her, too. I love stuffed animals, but I do not tear them up. I just like to carry them around. I am still learning what all this pet stuff is about, but it seems pretty nice to have a home. I really hope that you will contact my foster and come to meet me.
Hey Everyone, I am the foster mom Lincoln was talking about. He is an amazing dog. I am not just saying that either. He is extremely loving and so sweet. He is always happy to see us when we get home, even if we were only gone for a few minutes. We are working with him right now on more commands, and he is very food motivated, so progress is great. He can get scared when it comes to dominant movements over him. Meaning that he will cower easily, so we are working on building confidence, too. He is a beautiful, good sized GSD, and he also has a very nice stance. Lincoln is great at alerting when someone comes to the door or is nearby. He is not a big barker, but you can tell when he perks up that something is going on, and he will go “take a look” too. So, I feel very secure with him here. He is very good when greeting people, no jumping up on them, or getting overly excited. He is a very calm dog who would love a family who he can hang out with and relax. He does enjoy the kids playing with him, and has plenty of spunk if the time calls for it. He is good with kids, large dogs, and cats. I would assume he would welcome small dogs, too, as he has no issue with the cat and does not try to bother her at all. However, we only have a big dog to test him with right now. He likes to ride in the car, but does need a little help getting in right now. He does have a few shows on T.V. that he seems to perk up and “watch” when they are on. He likes the Animal Planet ones mostly, go figure. There is one thing that you should know about Lincoln though, he loves to be outside. So, if you do not have a good sized backyard, this may not be the dog for you. He will cry at the back door to get to go play outside. He loves to roll in the grass and sunbathe in the yard (on the few non-rainy days we’ve had). He also likes water, so a kiddie pool would be a treat for him, but if not, his 5-gallon water bucket works, too. Lincoln is EXTREMELY smart, and if he sees how you do something a couple of times, he can figure it out. Doors, gates, cabinets...many things. He is learning not to open doors up and follow us. The first few days he was trying and succeeded a few times, too, so a close eye at first will be important. If you have questions or would like to meet Lincoln, he is available for adoption and is ready to meet you.
