Rescued puppies Ali and Simba are looking for their ‘golden baskets’
IMPORTANT NOTE: Since the two are now ONE YEAR with me, they will not be surrendered anymore and stay here as a permanent foster dog! Donations for maintenance but still welcome (see right column).
The two rescued and saved puppies Ali and Simba are still looking for their families with the ‘golden baskets’ for lifetime.
Simba we found shortly afterwards, sitting and wailing under a car in a side street not far away on the way back from our daily walk. Read more here.
‘We just want to remind you that we are fantastic guys with about 20 kg (44 lb) and now 9-10 months old and still looking for our GREAT home!’
Ali is a white-brown male and was born around July 20, 2016. His weight is now (in May 2017) about 20 kg (44 lb). He is a calm and balanced, powerful dog and starts now to hear very well on commands.
To this he is very affectionate, somewhat jealous and playful, and loves children.
With cats he is in the meantime at war, since the two other hunting dogs in the pack look at these as objects for persecution races and do not tolerate their stay in the environment, so that Ali’s pack instinct naturally drives the same behavioral patterns.
Ali understands himself with all other dogs so far, only with his ‘brother of fate’ Simba does he sometimes have small clashes, which are limited to growls and shamrocks, for the rank order or jealousy.
Even my little ‘pack leader’ as well as my somewhat smaller, black shepherd-hunting dog are acknowledged as ‘bosses’ by both rescue dogs unreservedly and respectfully in all situations.
Ali is still quite excited when he meets other dogs. With smaller or equal size dogs he has no difficulties and is happy about every dog, but he is afraid of bigger dogs, his neck hair ruffles and he barks violently.
At the moment he’s still pulling at the leash when he wants to sniff a certain place, reach a cat or other dogs. This behavior is, however, at the moment trained away with the help of single walks on the leash.
Simba is also a male, but a black-gray Pointer Cross hunting dog with over 20 kg (44 lb) weight.
He was born about 10th of August, 2016, but in contrast to Ali is a little more lively and more easily excited and even more affectionate. For this purpose he is very sensitive and cuddly, which he expresses by frequent licking of the face, hands or feet.
He is easily jealous by his affection, so that occasionally light-hearted clashes occur with his ‘brother of fate’ Ali, who decide this ‘little match’ without difficulties and with alternating ‘winners’ among themselves, so that only slight exhortations are necessary.
In front of unknown persons who hits something with a stick or ax (for example, for the firewood) he is very terrified. Who knows what happened to him earlier or his siblings?
His mentality as a hunting dog is noted to him, since he considers cats, sheep and chickens as chase objects.
When dealing with other dogs Simba has virtually no problems and is happy about every encounter. Simba also looks forward to the contact with other people and children!
On the leash, he usually runs well and only pulls sometimes to sniff somewhere or to make contact.
For this, Ali and Simba have no problems at all with dealing with people or children, since they have not made any bad experiences with me at all. Every visit is celebrated as a great event and children are good for all the fun games!
