Special Criteria

Bolt is an older guy (born in 2010) who spent most of his life at a rescue organization that has since closed its doors. Now, Bolt just wants to run in the grass, cuddle with a person and enjoy his life. He loves neck scratches, food and watching wildlife on walks. He's done well with all the dogs he's met at the Sanctuary, but he does have a high prey drive, so he can't live with smaller critters, including cats. Bolt can be shy and fearful with strangers and a little nervous of new places and things. He is also anxious about medical handling. At the Sanctuary, Bolt has been working on impulse control, including keeping all four feet on the floor when someone enters his room or leashes him up. He is learning basic training cues and is crate trained. Bolt has been waiting all his life to be someone's best friend. Will that someone be you?
