Adoptable dog Simba is extremely affectionate with grown-ups and other dogs, just like us

'He will do best in a home with no children.'

Posted by


Meet Simba! Simba (A452665) is a sweet 6-year-old boy who was surrendered by his previous family because they could not care for him any longer. Simba is house-broken, leash-trained and knows some obedience commands. He is friendly with men, women and other dogs, he is extremely affectionate with people, but he will do best in a home with no children. He is neutered, microchipped, fully vaccinated and ready to go home the same day he is adopted.
