K9 Lincoln's Bio~ (CGC) (TDI)

Wilderness Search Certified

Lincoln is an Alaskan malamute. He turns four years old in January of 2011. Don and Brenda looked long and hard for just the right puppy and ended up finding Lincoln in Pennsylvania. Lincoln earned his CANINE SARTECH II certification in September of 2010. Lincoln is also a Canine Good Citizen and is certified as a therapy dog through Therapy Dogs, International. He goes to school with Brenda three days each week. The kids and staff love having him there, and Lincoln thinks it's great being an 8th grader!
