Everyone meet Simba! Simba is a 1 1/2 year old English Mastiff. His calm, happy personality is as large as he is. He is big and beautiful and hasnt met anyone he didnt like.
Likes... being with people, likes to go on walks, loves rub downs, enjoys car rides, likes to be close, loves to lean on you
Dislikes... havent found any yet
Personality/temperment... sweet, laid back, calm
Energy level... medium, he likes to go on walks but comes home to take a nap
Favorite activities... any place he is surrounded by people who want to give him attention, a park, a ball game
He is good with other dogs, shy at first but then engaging, seems uninterested in cats
Simba is both house trained and crate trained. He does not whine or bark when placed in his kennel nor is he destructive.
Simba tested positive for Ehrlichia* and is being treated by a veterinarian. Otherwise, he has no apparent challenges. He would do great in a home where there are people to dote on him but has such good behavior that you could feel comfortable if you left the house and he was alone for a time. He has overall good manners and does well walking on the leash. He would make a great companion to anyone looking for a constant sidekick!
