This stunningly handsome boy is Simba, a 1 year old golden retriever who is ready to meet his new family. Simba, who was previously relegated to his owner’s backyard and covered with fleas, has been nothing but smiles since he came into rescue. His coat is thin now, but has already started filling in and with continued good nutrition and care it will be thick and beautiful in no time.
Simba is an energetic boy who loves his walks and play time. An active family that is looking for a furry companion to join in all their activities is where he would thrive. He does pull on leash when he’s excited, so he will need continued training in that area. He wants to be with his people, so it would be best if his humans were around more often than not. He would also prefer to have a large basket of toys available, as he can get a bit rough with the less durable ones!
Simba has been a wonderful guest at his foster home, and has very good house manners. He hasn’t had any potty accidents and has left the Foster’s belongings intact. He will pick up a shoe if his toys aren’t readily available, but will quickly drop it once he has your attention. He is verbally responsive and a very quick learner. He is also treat motivated, so training will be both fun and rewarding. His foster family is working on some basic commands with him, and he is picking up on them very well. His future family should plan to enroll him in a positive reinforcement training class to continue his education.
Simba gets along great with other dogs and loves every person he meets. He does tend to jump up on people when he gets excited, although his foster family is working with him on this. He can get a bit mouthy when someone grabs his collar, and his foster family is working with him on that. His future family will need to continue encouraging a positive association when grabbing his collar. Because of these things it would be best if he wasn’t placed with very young children.
