Meet Lincoln, a 2-year-old male dog who is looking for his forever home. Lincoln is a mix of Doberman pinscher, lab, and pitbull, and weighs around 60 pounds.

He was a stray before being taken in by a foster family who adores him. Lincoln is a very active dog who loves to play fetch and go for walks, and he would make an excellent hiking buddy. He does pull on his leash if he sees a friendly-looking bird or rabbit, but he is eager to please his people and is currently working on this behavior. Lincoln is also very intelligent and has already learned several commands, including sit, stay, come, shake, lay down, and touch.

He also loves giving hugs, which he knows to give by the signal two taps on the chest. He is housebroken. While Lincoln is friendly with other dogs, he is still a young and rambunctious boy. He could be placed with a female dog on a case-by-case basis.

He has not been tested with cats and would likely do best in a cat-free household.

Lincoln currently stays crated when his foster parents are out of the house, and he would benefit from continued crate training as it helps him to relax. He can become anxious if left alone outside of his crate. He does bark initially when left in the crate before he settles in to nap so he may be too loud for folks who share walls with their neighbors. Above all, Lincoln is a very affectionate and loving dog who adores attention from his favorite people.

He loves to be petted and scratched, and he will follow his foster parents around the house, always ready for playtime or a cuddle session. Lincoln would do well in a home with a fenced yard or a lead, and he needs an active family who can provide him with plenty of exercise and attention.
