Meet Simba

Simba is a beautiful 5 year old Canaan / Shepherd Mix. His charming personality, great looks and lovable nature make him an irresistable favorite at the rescue! He is a very happy dog now, but unfortunately his life began with much suffering and tragedy...

Simba was born in Annan, Jordan. As a young pup a gang of boys tortured him, cutting off half of his ear and most of his tail. They broke his hind legs and kicked out most of his teeth. A rescue intervened and got Simba the medical attention he needed to survive. In a twist of fate, a family in Buffalo, NY learned of this dog's suffering and raised the money to fly him across the ocean and adopt him. They loved him so much but unfortunately did not understand the need for "working dog" breeds to have boundaries and rules. He didn't want to ever lose his family and his new home so he became increasingly territorial of the property which was unsafe as the family had a day care center in their home. They reached out to several organizations who had no room for Simba. Miraculously we received their voicemail on a Thursday evening and reached out to the family Friday just as Simba was on his way to be euthenized.

We are so grateful that Simba's life was spared a second time. He is now looking at his third chance at life! Not many dogs get that opportunity. Simba has done excellently at the rescue. He has made fast friends withe very volunteer he has met. He walks wonderfully on a leash and loves to play and cuddle.

Simba has done well with some dogs, but not all. He seems okay with cats. Simba needs a best friend and a strong leader he can trust to teach him the rules and boundaries to keep him safe. He is happy to learn and seeks to please his people. We believe Simba is alive for a reason. Maybe you are that reason? Maybe you are missing this dog from your life?

Simba is netuered, up-to-date on shots and house trained. Please ONLY inquire about Simba if you are expereinced with "working dog" breeds. If you would like to setup a meet-and-greet please contact The Canine Rescue of Central PA at 717-232-1644 or at adopt@crcpa.org.
