Meet Simba

Poor Simba was rescued from the pound with a terribly matted coat. While he was under being desexed the vet staff tried to brush out his coat but it was so bad around the backside, rear legs and tail that he needed to be shaved in those areas. After all this the poor boy got such an infection from the desexing operation that he could not lay down and was trying to go to sleep standing up. After another visit to the vets , appropriate medication, an Elizabethan collar and lots of TLC from his foster family he is doing very well. He was suspected of being a Keeshond x when originally rescued from the pound but now he?s in care he is more likely a Samoyed x Belgium Shepherd. Whatever his parentage his, he is a stunningly unique looking 2 year old boy, being all black except for a little white patch on his chest and with the classic spitz pointed ears and face, a curled tail and thick long coat, what a particularly handsome boy he is. He is a very lovable boy, he has such a gentle sweet nature and just loves everyone.

Simba was adopted on 11 August 2008 after 3 weeks in foster care
