Happily living in Nebraska City, NE

Lincoln and his brothers came to HUA in January 2009 from a puppy mill in Arkansas that would soon be shut down. When the mill failed to sell their litter, the dogs were tied up outside, and they lived that way for nearly a year. Their physical condition upon arrival at HUA was horrendous, but even worse was their terror of humans. They are still a work in progress, but intensive socialization work with a volunteer has brought about a lot of healing.

Lincoln is a brilliant, fascinating dog! He is always thinking, always studying a situation, and therefore he is often the first to try something new that he has thought about and considers safe--he was the first Arkansas boy to let his volunteer pet him; he quickly saw the value of jumping into a water tank in 90 degree weather; he taught himself the tunnels in the agility yard; and the first time he saw a couch he just knew it had been placed there for his comfort. Though he is the smallest dog in his pen, the other three Eskies respect him, and he gets along very well. He loves to explore in the agility yard, loves to curl up and be sung to, and when he feels like being petted, he knows how to communicate that and how to really get into it! He looks out for his friends, too; he is kind to the other dogs, and if you have a cut on your hand, he will continually come up to check on it. He's a dear, precious boy who needs an adopter he can look out for 24/7!

You deserve the very best of the best! My 4 babies and I will be happy to be your buddies until that lucky human comes along. Much love from Cinda, Spencer, Sunny, Sherman and Cricket." Lincoln sends Cinda, Spencer, Sunny, Sherman and Cricket many happy, grateful hugs and kisses.

Thanks for Visiting Our Animals!

Hearts United for Animals is a national no-kill shelter, sanctuary and animal welfare organization. Hearts United for Animals does long distance adoptions if there are safe flights and we have volunteers in the area to do a home visit. We require an application, references and a home visit to adopt one of our dogs. Our dogs are all spayed or neutered and are current on health care. We can cat test a dog if requested. If you are interested in adopting a dog, we can give you more information on each dog if you click the Adoption Info & Application link above. Buddies are people who support the dog and send them love while they are waiting for their new home. The dog does not live with the buddy.
