Adoption Status: We are working through Bolt's orthopaedic needs and surgical options prior to being adopted. He has an approved adopter who will adopt once he has cleared our medical.
Ideal Home: Bolt loves lots of walks and lots of play! He is a high energy dog and would do well with an adopter/adoptive family who can give him the play and walks and attention he thrives on.
Personality: Bolt is a super happy loving dog. He needs a wee bit of manners/puppy training but it doing brilliantly. He is smart and eager to please. He absolutely loves playing with toys with his humans and going for lots of walks.
Dogs/Cats: Bolt is learning to get along with Natalie, the other dog in his home. We willb e assessing further.
House/Pee Pad Training: he is outdoor trained
Children: Bolt loves everyone but supervision with small kids is essential as he is still learning god manners.
Walks/Stairs: He is able to manage but due to leg injury we limit activity.
Yard/House Needs: Bolt needs a yard to run and play.
Travel: To be assessed
Health Status: Bolt is a healthy guy but it was quickly discovered he had a previous issue with his front leg where there was a injury around a growth plate that did not heal correctly and required surgery which the previous owners declined at least twice. We are now having an orthopaedic assessment as Bolt's ability to weight bear on his front leg is intermittent and at times appears to cause pain. We remain unclear on surgical path despite orthopaedic assessment. We have several options we are discussing with adopter and will make a decision shortly on what is best plan for Bolt.
History: Bolt came to us from owners who stated they were moving and who stated they had no time for him. We have since realized that Bolt has a serious leg issue that was known and left untreated since he was young.
Adoption Fee: $400
