Lincoln's Story...
LINCOLN 6-7 Year Old Neutered Male Lab Mix 65 Pounds

From his current owners:

Lincoln is a sweet, loving, smart and happy dog. He loves to play tug, curl up at your feet, and receive belly and back rubs. He responds well to commands (sit, down, off) and walks well on or off leash with good recall. Lincoln loves to go for runs/walks, and swims at the beach. He has a dog walker and gets out each day with his other doggie friends. He also can be very easy going and enjoy to lay in the sun to take naps.

We got him from GGLRR 5 years ago when he was 1-2 years old. He was rescued by another family and was given up for adoption because their male dog did not like Lincoln. (He would always bite Lincoln and they felt it would be best to find Lincoln a new home to be fair to him.) He has lived with a cat before and mostly ignored him.

Lincoln is very affectionate and loves to be around adults but is nervous around young children. Lincoln is a special part of our family and given us lots of love and cuddles. We now have 2 young children and because he is anxious around them, we have made the difficult decision to find him a new home, where he will be happier and more relaxed. He would be best in a home with adults or older children.

Lincoln is a very healthy boy and has not had any health issues since we have had him. He is neutered, up to date on vaccinations and micro-chipped.

Original listing:

From the owners who found Lucky: We were lucky enough to have been adopted by a wonderful dog in August, 2010. He appeared in our front yard one afternoon and I found him playing with our dogs. Lucky is an adorable male, Black Lab mix. He is a knee high bundle of joy. He loves to play ball. He loves to cuddle and he likes to sometimes sleep on the bed .. in his own space. He is very gentle, he sits for treats and gently takes them. He loves to go in the car. He isn't a barker. He is use to an "Invisible Fence" and knows the rules and doesn't try to push the boundaries. We don't know what, if any, training he has had. He is fine with cats, birds and loves people. He can walk well on leash and picks up things quickly. He is completely housetrained.

Lucky was fine in our pack at first but now one of our dogs does not want him around and will go after Lucky. We have tried to regain peace in our home and our pack. We also have indoor birds in which Lucky has shown no interest and cats which he at first chased but now pretty much ignores.

Lincoln is located in Greenbrae.

If you are looking for a nice boy to be part of your pack please email Rescue Rep Liz at or call 415-613-6374

(Please keep in mind we are all volunteers, most of us work full time and we all have personal lives. I do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient and I will be back in touch with you. When the dogs are in foster homes then it may take longer as we need to touch base with the fosters for updates on the dogs. We work very hard to make the right matches for the dogs and for the new owners. We get 3-5 dogs per week and we do not have a facility that we keep the dogs housed in. They are scattered all over the Bay Area.)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lincoln, a San Francisco Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever for sale in San Francisco, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in San Francisco.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in San Francisco already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a San Francisco breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in San Francisco paves the way for another one to be saved.
