found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
BOLT is an awesome boy with the most gorgeous blue eyes. He loves to talk to you and let you know when he is bored and needs some attention, or he will just chat along whilst he is waiting for his food. He is a great boy with a very loving, affectionate personality. He is very responsive and will go in his kennel when told when I am cleaning outside, he sits on the dog bed and watches, waiting patiently for me to finish so he can come back out to check things out.
He has been great with other dogs of all ages and sizes and plays well. We do not have cats at the rescue and so we are not able to comment on how he would be near or around them. BOLT is located in the kennel building and does use the dog door to go out in the run to do his business, I cannot say if he is house-trained but I am thinking he most likely is, he might just need to learn to let you know he wants to go outside.
BOLT, being a husky is high maintenance when it comes to grooming, he will need at least daily brushing so he doesn't get matted and if ever he is bathed he will need to be dried thoroughly, especially the undercoat which will take a long time. Daily brushing is great for keeping control of the shedding and ensuring that he can cool down, or warm himself through the natural way that dogs do with the air flow through their coat.
BOLT is a large breed boy and will need a lot of exercise both mental and physical. He is a smart boy and if left to get bored, then that is when most likely to get up to mischief. Hikes, long walks, runs on the beach, swims in the lake and of course in the winter playing in the snow, which being from Texas he has never experienced are all adventures that he would enjoy and benefit from. He rides great in the car and is happy to venture wherever you take him so that he can explore the sights, smells and sounds that the world has to offer.
BOLT is very responsive and I believe training would be easy and a lot of fun. He needs a family that has the time to work with him on at least basic and advanced obedience. We recommend families work on training at home together so that boundaries and expectations can be learnt and by working together both BOLT and his family can learn more about each others personalities, and body language and thus form a stronger bond.
HUSKY's are not a breed for everyone and if you are not experienced with the breed, you must do your research, apart from shedding a lot of hair all year round they are very intelligent and intelligent dogs can become a problem if they are not mentally challenged. BOLT with the right family will be a lot of fun, he is an all round great boy and has lots of love and fun to share.
BOLT is available for adoption from Give a Dog a Home, German Shepherd Dog Rescue for an adoption fee of $500.
This fee is not negotiable and is used to cover the rescue costs of pulling, vetting, health certificate, transport from Texas to Maine, monthly preventatives, supplements, food and anything else that is needed.

BOLT is located at the rescue in Sebec, Maine. We post in various states along the east coast and Canada where we have had lots of successful adoptions to enable more exposure for these beautiful saved souls. Families will need to be prepared to travel to the rescue to meet and take home their new best friend. Sebec is located just outside the towns of Dover-Foxcroft and Milo (approx 8 miles) and approx 45 miles from Bangor. There are also lots of hotels, motels, pet friendly accommodations and wonderful camp-sites for the more adventurous families and what a great way to get to know your new best friend. If there are options to arrange transport, we will work with you to make it happen.
