- Good with Dogs
Simba is a young and excitable boy who is certainly still a giant puppy. He has been a bit thrown out by coming into kennels through no fault of his own, but is steadily making himself at home. Simba can be strong willed and still has a lot to learn so needs new owners that will commit to continuing his training. He does also find the world quite scary so will need owners to work on socialising him in different environments.
Being the big puppy that he is, once comfortable with you he is very playful and enjoys running around with his toys. He is particularly fond of his teddies, and likes to proudly show them off to you.
Because of the training and socialising that Simba requires, he is looking for an adult only home where the new owners have plenty of time to dedicate to him. He could potentially live with a calm female dog pending controlled introductions here at OAS, however owners must still be aware of the attention that Simba will need.
What Simba Needs from his Forever Home
New owners will need to visit Simba on several occasions before taking him home, as it can take some time for him to adjust to new people. He is particularly wary of men, and he can be quite vocal upon initial greeting. This is improving here, but new owners must be willing to continue his training. Simba is looking for an active home where new owners should be prepared to take on the training and socialising of Simba. As part of the adoption agreement, new owners will be required to enrol Simba in training classes and attend 1:1 session(s) with our behaviourist.
Oxfordshire Animal Sanctuary has provided and continues to provide hundreds of abandoned animals with a second chance. At any one time the Sanctuary can be looking after several hundred animals. At present on site they have over 60 dogs, 90 cats and kittens plus a number of rabbits and guinea pigs.
