When Hope for Paws got a call about a dog living at a water treatment facility, they wasted no time in going to find this handsome pup. When rescuers arrived, the dog was very skeptical of them. Though he appreciated the little bits of hamburger they brought him, he wasn’t ready for any interaction with his rescuers.

Thankfully, after getting the dog away from the plant’s dangerous chemical supply, the Hope for Paws team was able to catch him and begin earning his trust. Based on his shaggy, but strong, appearance they named him Mufasa.

Once Mufasa arrived at Hope for Paw’s rescue facility, the sweet senior pup got a bath, medical treatment and plenty of treats. Hope for Paws then coordinated with Lionel’s Legacy, a rescue organization that specializes in senior dogs. They took Mufasa in as a foster and are now looking for a home for this King.

Senior dogs often have a hard time getting adopted, as many families want puppies or young dogs. However, we know that senior pups can provide just as much love and companionship as younger dogs.
