Meet Simba

4 year old Simba was surrendered to animal control after his owner moved out of the country. His foster mom reports that he is simply wonderful! Simba is housebroken and has been fine without a crate. left him alone, uncrated, inside the house without concern. On walks he will trot about 20 feet ahead, circle back behind his foster mom, and then walk ahead again. He does this over and over, showing he truly loves to herd! Simba has a strong pack mentality and loves to be around, and protective of, his people. He is currently fostered with children ages 12 and 14, which he has flourished with. Simba tends to be a typical Shepherd meeting new people - aloof and tolerant.

With his people, he is a big cuddle bug. As soon as you start petting him on the head he will flop to the ground, roll over and expose his belly to you for endless rubs! He loves to play fetch and enjoys road trips.

Simba is fine with other dogs and lived previously with them, however he is not good with cats as he has a very strong prey drive. He is more of a co-exister with other dogs - not the daycare or dog park type! Simba handles the city noises well and doesn’t mind the vacuum - a huge plus!
