🐶 🐕 BOLT ADOPTED 8/13/2022 Male 7 months Bolt’s casual meet and greet turned into an unexpected adoption. His new family could not leave without him – check out more photos and see the rest of our dogs on our website — https://norcalbcrescue.org/available-dogs/our-dogs/ 🐕 🐶
Meet 7-month-old Bolt, a gorgeous black & white rough-coated boy, whose coat is so soft to touch & beautiful to look at. The best thing is that Bolt is as beautiful on the inside as he is on the outside. He’s happy, social with humans & dogs, & he even leaves the cats in his foster home alone. Bolt loves nothing more than following his foster dad around the property & surveying the scene. Sometimes he breaks into a little leap & romp just to make sure you know he’s having a good time. He is active, curious, & adventurous, but not over-the-top.
While Bolt has obviously not had a lot of formal training, he has good instincts & easily picks up what is expected of him. He is learning about toys, & he loves treats, so treats will be good motivators for him in his training. He also thrives on attention & has a nice desire to please, so sometimes simply letting him know you’re happy with what he’s done will be enough for this sweet boy. Bolt walks on a leash, but does not yet have real leash manners (loose leash walking). He should pick it up quickly. He loves to go places in the car because he already knows that good things wait for him when the car gets to its destination–evidence of his natural optimism. Bolt sleeps in a crate at night & has not had an accident in his foster home.
BOLT is micro-chipped, spayed, heartworm negative and on preventative, and up-to-date on vaccinations.
