Simba is an affectionate guy looking for love. He enjoys attention and is eager to please. He gets very excited when his people come home and has a hard time staying on all fours. Simba loves long walks as much as he loves cuddling on the sofa. He has a big heart and wants to share his love with you.
Simba is crate-trained and can behave by himself when home alone for short periods of time. He's learning leash manners and already knows Sit and Stay.
He's excited and a little nervous around dogs, so we advise a slow introduction to other dogs. He loves kids but does jump, so he may do better with older kids. Simba would do best in a cat-free home.
Simba has tested positive for heart-worms. It's a treatable condition and the treatment cost is included in his adoption fee. You can read about heart-worm treatment here: http://www.austinpetsalive.org/heartworms/
