07/04/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: A rockstar big puppy! All playful goofiness, affection and energy. Gorgeously groomed, a perfect weight, big smile and wagging tail and the perfect way to start my day. Surrendered by the only family he’s ever known in his short life due to “personal problems”, we’re told that Simba has been with kids ages 3,6,and 10 and is playful and excited with them, he loves dogs of all sizes and is also playful and excited with them, sometimes not realizing when he’s playing with small kids and small dogs that he’s a big boy. We’re also told that he’s mostly housetrained when kept on a regular walk schedule, is crate trained, well behaved when left home alone, and knows ‘sit’ ‘lay down’ and ‘up. I had a blast with Simba, playful with a toy and a ball he can amuse himself, loves to fetch and at times faced the dilemma ball or toy, toy or ball or how can I manage both? So cute to watch him try to make it all work. Up in my lap with or without his toy for some kisses and cuddles, and then back down for more play. He was never mouthy as some puppies are; he’s just a big happy bouncy boy. On leash on our walk he’s puppy bouncy wanting to meet every dog we passed, and greeting an older cocker spaniel respectfully and gently. Simba is absolutely perfect for his age, loving, playful, smart with just the right amount of puppy energy. He’s looking for an active home in which there’s plenty of play time, structure and love. Are you the lucky person who will welcome Simba into your life?
