It's hard to believe that this adorable angel had such a terrible life before RESCUE stepped in. When Lincoln came into Animal Control with his owners, he was in terrible condition. His owners lost their job and moved into a place that wouldn't allow dogs. When we met him we smelt him first. His mouth was in horrible condition. It looked like he had never once had his teeth cleaned. He's fur was coarse and sparse. His eyes were matted with debris and he was overweight. But despite these issues Lincoln was a sweet, gentle, loving, happy go lucky boy! He quickly stole all the hearts at RESCUE.

We had his teeth immediatly taken care of. He needed to have TWENTY teeth removed!! OUCH! Yes he still has teeth and able to eat dry food without issue. We moved Lincoln into foster care and discovered some other issues so we had him seen by the vet again. We found a massive bladder stone and that his thyroid was in very bad shape. We got him on medication right away and scheduled his stone removal surgery. After just a week on thyroid medication Lincoln pepped up and became more active, going with walks with his fellow canine brothers. Lincoln's surgery went by without a hitch. It was a calium stone, which means that he'll eat a specific type of dog food to help prevent them from forming again. The massive stone he had was caused by complete lack of any medical treatment, most likely ever in his life. This stone took YEARS to form.

Now with all that behind him, Lincoln is ready for the next chapter, the BEST chapter in his life. This little boy deserves an amazing family that will spoil him rotten. In return you will get a true angel of a dog. Lincoln is just about perfect! He is house trainned, crate trained, rides great in the car and has excellent leash manners. He gets along well with other dogs and kids. He ADORES people. He follows his foster parents around the house, observing their activities, snoozing on a nearby dog bed, although if you offer your lap, Lincoln is happy to oblige.
Lincoln is a mellow fellow and would like a quiet home where he can get lots of daily attention, walks and snuggle time. If you work full time, Lincoln will need another easy going canine sibling at home to keep our social boy company. Ideally folks that work from home, have staggered schedules or are retired would be perfect for Lincoln.

Lincoln is a special soul who never let this situation get him down even though it nearly ended his life. This angel deserves to be loved and adored for all the days of his life. If you'd like a chance at being Lincoln's Guardian Angel, please fill out an application for him today -
