SIMBA & NALA Simba and Nala were always best friends in the Lion King movie. And in real life, these two senior Rhodesian Ridgeback mixes have been best friends for 10 years. Now, sadly, their owners (who are in their late 80's) must find them new homes. Mom has gone to a nursing home and their Dad must move to be close to her.... and Simba and Nala must find a new family. Simba and Nala are very sweet and loving dogs that are dearly loved. They are spayed/neutered, have lived outside and are very friendly to everyone they meet.
