One of my friends adopted a Malamute dog named Simba. We were pretty sure he lived in a house nearby and was recently given up.
He apparently had a rough time especially when a dog he bonded with got adopted.
We brought my favorite dog, Liberty to see how well he would get along with her. Simba and Liberty did well together.
The friend that actually adopted the dog was working that night. Simba got loose on a walk and ran crying to the house we thought he belonged to once. There was no doubt about it after that.
He got loose again when we tried to take him into his new house. It took forever to get him inside.
