Bolt COURTESY POST

American Staffordshire Terrier (short coat)

Adult • Male • Medium

My name is Bolt.  I am a great family dog.  I love my parents and my 2 little girls and they love me...but I can’t stay with them anymore.  I was nervous and got into a scuffle with a neighbor dog and my family can’t keep me. Ideally I would like to be the only dog in the home. I live with another dog, Beatrice, and she and I get along most of the time, she fusses at me if I try to share her dinner after mine is gone. I am an amazing people pup and am not food or toy aggressive. I love to play tug of war with ropes.  I can get pretty vocal when I play.  I growl and tug and pull — you will really get a workout.  It’s so fun! I am told by one of my girls, a teenager, that my eyebrows are on fleek.  My mom didn’t know what that was but on fleek is quite the compliment.  I also have a white spot on my neck like someone took a small paint brush with white paint and brushed across my fur.  It looks like a lightening bolt!  I also smile sometimes, I mean really smile, all the way to my ears, if I’m scratched I’m just the right spot. Here’s another thing: I may look like a medium dog and I may run like a bolt of lightening, but part of me is tea-cup-sized.  If you sit on the floor I’ll sit right in your lap, because, see, I really do fit!  I love being petted and fussed over and cuddled with.  I love sleeping on blankets and getting cozy. I wish I could stay with my family but I can’t.  I hope to find a good, safe home.
