Simba's Info...

Simba's Story...
Simba is a 2 1/2 yr old Golden Mix. Simba enjoys attention and gets along great with his foster siblings. Emotionally, Simba has come a long way. He now wags his tail!

Simba is a wonderful boy and will make a great addition to a home. He is house trained and is not destructive however Simba will need another dog in his forever home to help him on his quest to become a truly confident dog. Simba will need a strong, dog savvy family who is willing to continue the training that has begun in foster care.

Simba will do best in a home without children and he has not been around cats in his foster home.

Simba has a beautiful thick coat of fur - you can really see why he was named Simba - he's king of the lions.

Simba tested positive for heartworm and will receive treatment at GRFR's expense: one shot and then 30 days later two shots over a two day period. He'll need to be kept quiet during this 60 day period, no running or roughhousing. Simba is a pretty mellow boy so that should not be a problem. Simba will need to be kept on heartworm preventative year round for life. GRFR will pay for a follow up blood test 6months after his heartworm treatment is completed. GRFR coordinators will work with you to set up the appointments.

Some people might be leery of a dog like Simba who has had heartworm, but there is no need to be. It is both curable and preventable.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Simba, a Denver Golden Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Golden Retriever for sale in Denver, or seeking a Golden Retriever dog from a breeder in Denver.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Denver already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Denver breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Golden Retriever breeders who help with Golden Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Denver paves the way for another one to be saved.
