Meet Simba! He’s an 8 year old neutered chocolate Lab who never really had a chance to know what the Good Life is all about. Now that he’s been rescued and is in a wonderful foster home, this sweet and loving boy is really blossoming! Before reaching CILRA, he suffered from untreated flea allergies which have now been treated successfully – he’s much more comfortable and his coat has grown back beautifully. This Lab’s perfect Forever Family would have slightly older kids, the chance for tons of daily walks (which he Adores because he’s very active and loves sniffing to his heart’s content), and to be given loads of love & attention. Speaking of attention, Simba wants it all! While he does enjoy playing with other dogs outside the home, he prefers to not share attention with another dog inside. Simba is very polite and gentle, especially when taking treats. He’s very playful and always ready for a game of Catch/Fetch. He doesn’t appear to be prey-driven: On separate occasions he has watched a squirrel, rabbit, duck, cat, and chicken pass in front of him and didn’t think twice about it. He also has perfect house manners; he doesn’t need to be crated, and asks for permission before getting onto furniture. Who could ask for anything more? He’s being fostered in Monticello, IL.
