Simba lives in an apartment in Sweden with his owner, Arjanit Mehana. There, despite the dog’s friendly advances, many folks in the building would go out of their way to avoid him.
One neighbor in particular, an older woman who lives a floor below, was especially cold to Simba.
“He always tried to greet her, but she called him mean and looked at him with fear,” Mehana told The Dodo. “She never liked him because he was a ‘bad’ breed.”
Simba, however, never soured to her — which he soon proved in the sweetest way.
