Simba's Info...

I am already neutered, purebred, and up to date with shots.

Simba's Story...
Smart, alert, energetic 36-pound, 10-month old who is nervous in the shelter environment. Fortunately, some dedicated volunteers have brought him home to foster so we've learned what his true personality is like and that it won't take much time to make him perfect !

--incredibly well-behaved, but typical playful, high-energy puppy
--Walks nicely on leash.
- LOVES to play with all kinds of toys and is a champion ball-player
- very smart and listens really well
--always comes when called, knows sit,
- attaches quickly to people; likes to snuggle and give kisses
- very active and enjoys long walks
- sleeps through the night, likely housebroken
- enjoys living and playing with another dog and feels more secure with another dog around
- loves to play with other dogs. passed cat test.
-- he is still a bit nervous with car rides
- he likes to jump on people to “hug” them when he gets nervous
- when getting too crazy with his toys he can get a bit mouthy (he is still a puppy). but if you offer a toy as an alternative, he will take it!
He also totally loves Nylabones and other things to chew on.
- can still get a bit nervous in some unfamiliar situations, but is easily distracted by feeding treats and/or petting him.

We learned that he is a jumper so we're looking for a family that might be interested in bringing him to agility classes.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Simba, a Goleta Australian Cattle Dog puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Cattle Dog for sale in Goleta, or seeking a Australian Cattle Dog puppy from a breeder in Goleta.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Goleta 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 Goleta 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 Australian Cattle Dog breeders who help with Australian Cattle Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Goleta paves the way for another one to be saved.
