Fashion-savvy sunglasses swinging jauntily from his collar, perky Pumba (formerly Damien) is proudly showing off his new look and his new name.

As an overgrown 40-pound puppy inside the buff body of a 3-year-old adult, Pumba thrives on attention and LOVES being with people.

Saved from a shelter environment, thereby missing out on that precious puppy phase, this bright beauty, so eager to learn and to please, has been putting his best paw forward at a doggy training centre as he absorbs and excels at his canine ABC’s.

Once new to the company of other dogs, he now spends time socializing more easily with them, and even accepts gentle human pets and strokes while he eats.

After discovering the sheer joy of toys, he happily brings them over to his trainer when she asks, and often trots off on his own to play with them while he basks in the sun or chills in the shade.

Having honed his leash walking skills in the peace of the country, he’s begun work on walking paw-litely in town where distractions abound. But as Pumba progresses by leaps and bounds, what remains fixed is the amount of LOVE he has to give.

Now, to ensure his ultimate success, this passionate pup needs a home (without children, cats or other small animals), with a large, securely fenced yard, perhaps a calm, balanced lower energy medium-to-large breed dog for company and guidance, and patient, experienced adopters firmly committed to his continued training.

    We’re experienced adopters, and lost a our first adoptee (senior) last year.
    We would adopt Pumba however we have a 20 month old daughter and a cat, and that’s on the no-go list, unfortunately.

    Our fenced in yard and 42lb French Bulldog/Boston Terrier mix, Tank would have been his PERFECT companion.. they look so similar and I’m sure their energy levels are compatible. Partners in crime I’m sure.

    Good luck, Pumba! (Love the name, btw).
