Chow Chow puppies named after famous Lion King characters need new homes

Three rescue puppies, Mufasa, Sarabi and Simba are hoping to roar their way into their new homes after recently coming into the care of Dogs Trust Newbury Rehoming Centre.

The Chow Chow puppies, now aged 18 weeks, have been named after the famous Walt Disney characters from the film The Lion King, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year with the release of the live action remake on the 19th July.

Antony Dominy, Rehoming Centre Manager at Dogs Trust Newbury, said:

“It’s not hard to see why staff have named these pups after the famous lions – just look at their impressive manes! These little ‘cubs’ are great fun and have brought so much joy to the centre since arriving. We know they will do the same in their new homes.

Mufasa, Sarabi and Simba live by the famous Lion King phrase, ‘Hakuna Matata’ which means ‘no worries’ as they run around and play with all the joy that puppies should. They just can’t wait to be Kings and Queens of their own homes… could that be with you?”

Dogs Trust Newbury Rehoming Centre also have a beautiful ‘lioness’ called Narla in their care, who loves to bask in the sun. Narla is an Eight-year-old German Shepherd cross who has a sweet nature and adores people. She would love a quieter home where she can spend her days relaxing or having fun.

Narla, the ‘cubs’ and the rest of the pride at Dogs Trusting Newbury Rehoming Centre would love their chance at finding a fur-ever home. Why not come and visit Newbury’s very own ‘pride rock’ and meet your four-legged friend for life.
