Simba’s Story

History:  Symba’s owner was no longer able to keep him due to changes in residence pet requirements.  Simba is being fostered by his owner’s parents until he can find a new home.

About:  Symba is an awesome little guy!  He is good with adults and children of all ages.  He is currently living with three other dogs: a 4 year old Great Dane, a 9 year old Coon Hound mix, and a 12 year old Terrier mix and he gets along great with all of them, and even plays with the Great Dane!  He has never met a cat, but he did meet a rabbit once and was very curious, but polite so he might also do well in a home with cats.  Symba is also housetrained, but like many small dogs he does not have a very large bladder so he needs to be taken out regularly.  Symba was crate trained as a puppy, but he is no longer actively crated.  He is allowed access to his crate and will often go lay in it, but the door is never shut.  Symba gets very excited to go on walks.  He knows: Sit, Down, Stay, No, and Dance.  Symba is a dog who will need to always be leashed, or contained by a secure fence.  He previously got under the fence in his foster home and he “forgot” his name and did not respond to being called.  He is a very adaptable dog and has lived in a condo in the city, and a house in the suburbs and did equally well in both situations.  Symba is a happy, playful, active dog and would be a great addition to many different types of families.
