Lincoln--20 month old male located in Alberta
Rescue Contact: Linda Grisley
Twenty-month old Lincoln was surrendered to the Foundation by his owner, a truck driver who could no longer keep Lincoln with him on his travels. He is an energetic young man with little self control, but shows a loving, happy temperament.
Lincoln is neutered, and in healthy condition, with a dense black coat. He is not registered but was purchased by his owner as a puppy from the U.S., then brought into Canada to live. He does have a microchip.
Lincoln gets along well with cats, dogs, adults and children and is housebroken. He spent a lot of time travelling in a crate, so is full of bounding energy. He needs a home with a large fenced yard and an owner who is willing to train him. He would love to bond closely with a new human. Lincoln is currently fostered in Edmonton, Alberta.

Lincoln is settling in very nicely at his foster home. He is not timid or shy, but a typical outgoing mischievous, yet not aggressive, Kerry Blue. His foster mum, Janice, reports that he will walk off leash with the other dogs and can be left unleashed in the yard. He will come when called and even if not called to her, will check in periodically as she works in the garden. Lincoln needs to be kept busy. He is energetic and happy and would do well in Rally-O, agility, fly-ball or other active sport.
He arrived here with a non-Kerry haircut (‘nuff said!) so will be groomed this weekend – and then we can get some pictures to post! This is a handsome boy just waiting for a Kerry-savvy permanent home.

Happy Birthday to Lincoln!. 4 Today and super fit and healthy. He sends his regards but finds typing difficult.

Lincoln, usually a tad reluctant to answer any call; the words 'dinner is ready'
produces an altogether different response.

Lincoln is 7 years old today and fitter than ever - and more a hooligan than can be imagined.

Lincoln was surrendered to us in 2007 by his truck driver owner who could not keep up with his energy. He went to live in Victoria BC, with Nigel & Susan Hayes. He passed away on May 12 of cancer.

Our smart, funny, Irish rogue. You made us laugh and kept us fit. There is a hole in our hearts now that you are gone and the home is empty. You brought immeasurable joy and love and will never be forgotten. Heaven just became a much brighter place by gaining Lincoln's sweet, beautiful soul.
