Facts about Lincoln

  • Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix
  • Color: Black - With Brown, Red, Golden, Orange Or Chestnut
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Lincoln is a 5 year old pit mix that came to us severely emaciated and had cuts on him. He is a gentle soul and favorite to all volunteers. He doesn't pull in leash, house trained, and loves to go on long walks. Lincoln loves to go in the play yard and hang with volunteers. After he's done romping around the yard he goes and lays down right near the volunteers and just hangs.

Lincoln is a good dog for a first time dog owner who wants companionship. Lincoln has been dog tested and did well, might be best with older dog in home. Cat test pending. If you looking for a laid back dude that will just hang on the couch, or if your up for a long is he! Come down and meet Lincoln!
