Friends to the Forlorn
Abe Lincoln - Male - Senior - 14 Pounds - Dachshund
Abe Lincoln was found as a stray on 4/23/15. He was stuck in a drain pipe on White Street (West End) in Atlanta, GA 30310. He had on a leather collar but no tags and no microchip. No one ever came for him at Fulton County Animal Control and due to his poor condition he needed to get out of there ASAP so Friends To The Forlorn rescued him.
His original name when animal control took him in was Timmy. We were told that he was thin and about 5 years old. We changed his name to Abe Lincoln because he is our old little man. We are not sure exactly how old this sweet boy is but most likely about 10 years old. He has limited hearing and limited vision. He was 13 1/2 pounds when we took him in and is severely underweight. He has arthritis in his back legs too.
Abe Lincoln could also be named Guilliver for Gulliver's Travels because this boy loves to trot around! It doesn't matter if he is doing laps inside the home, on a leash or in a fenced in yard - he loves to be moving! He enjoys climbing up your leg for lovin', curling up in a crate for a nap, getting treats, going for walks, giving kisses while in your lap and looking out the window on car rides! Don't let his age scare you - he has a lot of pep in his step!
We are not sure if he was dumped or became lost from wandering but this sweet boy needs and deserves a loving safe forever home that can tend to the needs of a small senior dog. He gets along great with other dogs and rarely barks.
Abe went to our vet on 4/27/15 and received all of his vaccines and lab work. His labs are good and he has no major health issues. He will be getting neutered on 5/11/15 and he will be getting a dental at that time as well. He is current on vaccines and heartworm negative and has been dewormed and started on heartworm preventative.
Abe is in a foster home in Dallas, GA 30157 (Paulding County). If you are interested in learning more about him, meeting him or adopting him please call, text or email Holly at 678-939-6981 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Adoption fee is $250.00. He will melt your heart!
