Henry, a rescuer from California, came across a skinny dog with mange that resembled a coyote. The dog was contained in a fence, where he and his coworkers were able to successfully attach a leash. He smiled and seemed friendly at first, but that quickly changed.

The dog required assistance when being led to the car and seated in the back. He let out a scream of terror that roused one of the females. But in the end, it was well worth it. They were confident in their ability to help him and give him a good life. The rescuer’s offering of treats eventually calmed the dog down. Finally, he realized, he was in a secure location.

The wellbeing of the puppy required immediate attention. With the right care and food, the dog was able to make a full recovery. His transformation from “coyote” to “fluffy lion” is depicted in the video. Incredible! You won’t recognize him in this new photo!

 

The renamed Simba the dog went to a foster home but had no idea what it was like to actually live in a home. He “was a fish out of water,” as his foster mother put it. Simba preferred to stay on all fours on the ground despite being invited to come up on the couch for some cuddle time.

Two years later, Henry pays Simba a visit. He couldn’t get over how much Simba had changed into a cuddly lion. It’s a miracle how much Simba has grown! Did you ever find a place to call home, Simba? Do you have any idea what he looks like now? If you want to know, just watch the clip! What an amazing tale!
