My name is The Connors’ Simba and I’m part of the Disney transport coming to OPH 5-31-19!
I’m guessed to be a golden retriever mix and estimated to be about 2 years old. I’m a sweet boy and I currently weigh about 56 lbs.
I’m making my way north in search of my new family. Is that with you! If so apply today! I won’t be available long!
