Do you remember the lovable wart-hog Pumbaa who was the buddy of the meerkat Timon in Disney's animated 'Lion King?' Arf! Arf, everyone, I'm Pumbaa, named because my 'hakuna matata' (no worries) lifestyle also got me into trouble. That is, Timon and I were found by a Good Samaritan as we wandered the mean streets of Houston together for who knows how long. I'm a super-sweet, loyal, confident, courageous, and steady German Shepherd/ Black Lab fella who weighs 60 pounds and was born about October 2021. My ears and solid-black torso indicate my Lab heritage, and my grizzled points on my head, ears, legs, and tail look like a German Shepherd. I'm young and very playful, so I'm perfect with all hoomans - including kids - as well as other dogs. We German Shepherd dogs are renowned for our high intelligence, uncanny faithfulness, and noble character. Like a typical German Shepherd Dog, I'll want to bond with my new family by being right in the center of all their activities. We GSD's can be gentle family pets who easily learn commands. We can also be steadfast guardians who are willing to put our life on the line in defense of loved ones. No wonder we're truly a dog-lover's delight and rank at the front of canine royalty. Although German Shepherd Dogs make great house dogs, we need regular daily exercise for our physical and mental well-being. I'm dreaming of playing Frisbee at the dog park or at least a vigorous walk with my new hoomans. Could that be with you? Although I'm available separately, it'd be the cat's meow if I were adopted with Timon since we are a bonded pair. Arrange to meet me today! Pumbaa is updated on shots, neutered, dewormed, and microchipped. Heartbreakingly, he tested positive for heartworms and is undergoing treatment, and Miss Donna is covering the cost. His adoption fee is $250 (includes heartworm treatment) for dogs older than 9 months. An application must be filled out prior to adoption.
