“Every minute spent in your company, becomes the new greatest minute of my life.” – Bolt, the movie, 2008
Like a bolt of lightning, I shot out of the starting gate and onto the track! Zooming ahead of my competitors…! Wait, what do you mean I wasn’t the fastest dog? I know I was retired young. It wasn’t because I was an intimidating Bolt on the race track?
My name is Bolt! I’m a big, exuberant and playful 2 year old greyhound! I’m affectionate and I like to put my head in your lap so you can scratch my ears. I like things other dogs like – long walks, lots of love, and good food. I know basic commands, sit, down, shake, and bow. I also like to play with toys and will occasionally fetch!
But, obviously there’s something a little different about me, or I wouldn’t be a spotlight dog, right?
I need a special adopter. I need a home where the people in the home respect my space (including my treats and bed). I need structure and guidelines. This is very important. I am a resource guarder, and when good treats are involved, I want to keep them for myself and not let anyone touch them.
My foster Mom is working on my training, and I have been evaluated by a Behaviorist. It’s important that my forever home continues to work with me and give me both physical and mental stimulation. All training must be positive reinforcement or reward-based. An experienced adopter is a must.
I’m not good with cats or with small dogs, but a well behaved big dog would make a great brother/sister for me. I could also be an only dog. it is best to not have small children in my home, but teenagers would be fine.
I’m a good boy, who loves to meet people. I’m looking for my forever people to find me!
If Bolt sounds like the perfect dog for you --- please contact us to find out more about him!
