Scottish Deerhound cross in Yeovil


Simba is a loving affectionate 7 month puppy. He was rescued at the beginning of May from an owner that kept him outside 24/7. He has come on leaps and bounds and is getting there slowly. However he is now indoors and is fully housetrained. However due to his upbringing and probable abuse he can be quite timid and cowers when he has done something wrong. He wasn't socialised and tends to jump up at a new face, this is getting better however. He was shortlisted in the paper for Lockdown Dog Heroes and the Journalist fell in love with him.

He is crate trained, knows paw, sit lie down, touch nose to palm and wait for food. He goes for a walk once a day on a harness and extending lead.

He has been vaccinated and needs boosters, he is microchipped but not neutered. His appointment for this is on the 27th July.

He is very playful but due to his size can be quite clumsy. He loves squeaky toys and rope toys and is generally spoilt rotten. He is my rock and I'm only re-homing him due to my mental health and unfortunately I have no time to train him more.

He needs a home that is child free and small pet free. His breed likes to chase small animals and he does not like cats.

He CANNOT be taken off of the lead. His breed is known for their lack of recall and he will not come back when called. He loves to chase Squirrels. And jump into the local stream on his walk.

I am very reluctant to let this little boy go. He has been there for me in a very dark place. This is very reluctant. He needs to go to a loving home and not a home where he is kept outdoors all day. I will want to check the home is suitable before making a decision as to if the owner is the right person. He will only go to a person who I feel is right and has knowledge and experience of large breeds.

He is a very loving and affectionate young beautiful boy. The price isn't because I want the money, it's because it's a very reluctant and unwanted sale. He will come with his toys, lead, harness and other accessories including tonnes of treats and some food. You will also have a brand new bed but you will need your own crate.
