Adoptable Dog of the Week – Lin

If you’ve been dreaming about a sweet and friendly pooch that loves kids, you’re in luck! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Lin, a 2 years old Australian Cattle Dog and Labrador Retriever mix from Nashville, Tennessee. She is spayed, house trained, crate trained, microchipped, and up to date on her vaccinations. Lin is a friendly dog that adores children and gets along great with other dogs.


Lin’s Tale


There’s not much rescuers know about Lin’s history – including why her previous owners decided to cut her ears and tail – but whatever her story was, it didn’t influence her happy-go-lucky and loving personality the tiniest bit. Lin is the sweetest gal there is, especially around babies and kids: she adores children and would love nothing more than to get adopted by a family with kids she could play and cuddle with. She is affectionate and loves to snuggle and cuddle, but she’s not pushy about it – she’s more of a quiet and curious type.



A smart cookie that’s willing to learn, Lin already knows basic commands such as how to sit when instructed to and how to fetch – which, needless to say, she loves to do. She is also already house trained and crate trained, although, in all fairness, she does prefer sleeping with her people (and who wouldn’t?). Lin is very friendly and loving, and not just with people, but with other dogs, as well. She goes to a doggie daycare in her foster home, and she gets along great with other canines, so she’d love to share her new home with another canine roommate. She hasn’t been tested around cats, though, so you might want to inquire more about it if you have a feline in the family.


If Lin sounds like she’d fit right into your family, contact ALIVE Rescue Memphis – Nashville Chapter for more information about her and the adoption process.
