Facts about Simba

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever/Carolina Dog Mix
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Simba got his name from the Lion King. As he lay sleeping on the couch with his eyes closed, stretched out as far as he could reach, Breka said that he looked just like the baby from Lion King. (he also likes to go bounding through the bushes when he is looking for a good private potty spot)His coloration is between a yellow and red and he has a thin white stripe down the middle of his nose. Eyes are a dreamy brown, outlined in black, and we expect him to be a normal Lab size, around 50 to 55 lbs. at maturity. Of course, at 8 weeks, all of this is a guess,at best. The vet has estimated his date of birth as March 26, 2009. A worker at the shelter saw a man dragging this puppy ON A ROPE towards the shelter when it was closed. Upon closer look she approached the man and told him the shelter was closed, and he said, "IF YOU DON'T TAKE HIM, I AM GOING TO PUT HIM OUT IN THE ROAD & Go HOME! The shelter is on a major highway, so needless to say, she started calling everyone she knew in rescue. We amazingly were at home, so felt there was no way we could turn this little guy away. He has been an absolute joy. A little shy at first, we almost called him Snuggles, (he would snuggle against your neck and fall asleep) but Eddie said we could not call any male dog that was going to grow to his size, Snuggles! So now Simba is enjoying his new home and has found a playmate in the Chihuahua Patrick, who is waiting to be neutered before going to his new home. We told Patrick he'd better behave because Simba was going to grow. We hope Patrick will help us out with the house training. It has been awhile since we have had one this young. As you can see from some of the pictures, his other best buddy is our own dog Yhell a Yellow Lab. We think our Lab must look like Simba's mother because he will stand between our Lab's front feet and reach up to give him kisses. And then of course they all go chase each other around the back yard until it is time to go sleep on the couch again. We prefer contact via email at sunsetanimalrescue@yahoo.com, or phone and leave a message at 803-635-4252 The adoption donation is $200.00. This will include up to date shots, neuter, microchip, and health maintenance monthly meds kept up to date. (Simba is due to be neutered in July when he will be old enough for the surgery) Simba is currently being housetrained, and will be fully housetrained before adoption.

Our Adoption Process...

Anyone interested in adopting one of our pets should contact us for an interview. We do have a questionnaire and an adoption contract and a home visit is also required before a potential adopter is approved. Our regular adoption donation for dogs is $200.00 which includes their current shots, microchip, and spay/neuter. Our regular adoption donation for cats is $120.00 which includes current shots, microchip & spay/neuter. We do have some dogs and/or cats that may have a higher adoption donation. In this case the adoption donation amount will be noted in the description of the pet. Sunset Animal rescue increased the donation amount for dogs in 2009 due to increased costs for food, spay/neuter, medication, gas, etc. We do prefer that all adoptive families for dogs have a securely fenced yard.
