Simba's Happy Ending

Simba's happy ending

“Go West, Young Man” was the name of a film made in 1936. Well, the opposite proved to be true for Simba. You see, he had a rough start in Gothenburg, Neb., as a puppy, being passed around and ending up in a home where the residents were facing bankruptcy and eviction. That’s when he ended up at the Cozad Veterinary Clinic, where they held him until a volunteer was able to transport Simba further down I-80 to Lincoln, where Parker's Puppies and a foster home awaited. While here, he grew big and strong, enjoyed playing with kids and had his photos taken by Cherished Images by Beverly. Eventually, this family from Papillion applied and was approved to adopt him. And after some rigorous training with Dog Gone Problems, that’s exactly what they did. Turns out, heading east was the right path to a furever home for Simba. We’re so thankful to all who played a role!
