Update 11/2/19 - Lincoln has had a birthday and is now 5 years of age. We have been learning a lot about this boy. He is not able to be in very active situation that is unfamiliar. He doesn't walk well on leash in these situations he has a flight mentality and will try and run. He is also very mouthy and will try to dominate you. Due to this behavior we feel that he cannot be placed in a home with children. Lincoln loves his people, the car and submissive dogs. However, he doesn't know how to interact with other dogs that startle him. Lincoln will require a quiet home with little activity, who understands the breed and will be willing to take the time to work with him.

Update 6/23/19 - Lincoln is settling in nicely with his foster family. He is getting used to noises of the world that were once frightening. He loves car rides our foster family learned they can’t leave the car door open as he will climb right in. Lincoln has not been used to playing with toys so this has been fun to watch as he tries to figure out what they are. He has also shown his talkative side when you are running together. This boy is a diamond in the rough - if anyone is looking for a meet and greet this boy is for you.

Added June 2019: Lincoln is 4 year old brindle male with natural ears who weighs about 145 pounds. He is a bit thin, and could afford to put a bit more weight on. Lincoln is good with other dogs, but selective with cats. In his previous home he lived with 2 cats and got along well with one but chased the other. He lived with children ages 4-13. They said he was good with other dogs and we have only confirmed this with one meet with a balanced female, who he did meet nicely. Lincoln is nervous with new noises and new environments, but seems to meet humans without issue. He seemed a bit stressed when he came to us but is settling down quite nicely. He is becoming a little pushy but responds to correction. He is very treat motivated but we are treating him sparingly at this point to make sure his stomach can handle them. He has done well with them so far. Gradually Lincoln is gaining more confidence and getting used to the typical sounds of the out of doors. He startles fairly easily, but as time goes on, he is becoming less skittish. He came from a home with a lot going on in close quarters and perhaps he became a bit stressed there. We believe he may thrive in an environment with medium to low activity, lots of structure and comforting when he gets stressed. He is becoming a really nice dog. Lincoln came to MAGDRL in June 2019.
