Meet Bolt! Bolt is a 1.5 year-old male, Lab/Golden Retriever mix whose family lovingly surrendered him after going through a divorce and a move. They weren’t able to spend as much time with him and were worried he was spending too much time in his crate. He was surrendered in hopes that a more consistent living environment and training will help Bolt to grow into his golden life.
Bolt is a very loving dog with a playful personality. He was an only dog at his old home, but he gets along great with our resident dog Lucy. They spend a lot of time playing in our backyard together; their favorite games are tug-of-war, tag, and wrestling. After a play session, they will often snuggle together a bit on the couch before taking a nap.
Bolt loves to be with us and is definitely a velcro dog. He follows Foster Mom from room to room to see what she is up to. He likes to watch me cook, will curl up at my feet when I am working at my desk, and will also cuddle up with us while we watch TV. He doesn’t have separation anxiety, but is definitely a happy boy with a wagging tail when we come home.
We took Bolt to the vet his first week with us, and learned Bolt is a little bit chubby but otherwise he has no health problems. We are making sure Bolt gets lots of exercise to shed a couple pounds, which isn’t hard because he loves to play and be active
Bolt is completely housetrained, and has never had an accident since he has been at his foster home. He also never barks, even when our resident dog starts giving the mailman a hard time. We give him free roam of the house during the day and night, and he has not been destructive at all. He does do a bit of counter surfing when there is food within paw’s reach, so we just make sure food is put away or far from the edge of the counter. Bolt is working on his leash skills, and does pull quite a bit when we first take him out, but with a little coaching he starts to walk very nice.
Bolt is such a sweet boy, and we feel so lucky to have him staying with us. He is friendly and loving to everyone he meets, is very gentle despite all his energy. He would be a fabulous dog in a home with or without other dogs, and would also do great with kids. With just a little bit of training and structure, Bolt would thrive in a loving home.
