Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Bolt has been adopted! 10-24-2010

Female about 0 old.

Hi my name is Bolt. Everyone keeps telling me how lucky I am. At first I didn't feel lucky - after all I had been hit by a car and had some pretty bad injuries. Then a "Good Samaritin" found me and called Coastal that's when my luck began to change. First they made sure I got in to see a terrific veterinarian (all these big words I'm learning!). Then I had surgery to fix my broken leg and dislocated hip from being hit by the car. It had been a few days since the trauma had happened so they had a tough time doing the repairs but they did a really great job and I'm almost fully recovered. That's where I lucked out again they tell me. After my surgery I went to live with a really nice lady and her family. There were other dogs there that treated me very well since I had some recuperating to do and was on crate rest for awhile.

Now that I have finished my initial recovery period and am allowed some physical therapy walks and some play time - I get to play with the other dogs and we have lots of fun. I've learned all sorts of new things about living in a house and sharing toys and food with 3 other dogs. I was already fully housebroken so that wasn't a problem I'm very proud to say! I enjoy playing with toys, I don't get on the furniture, I get along with all the dogs, I'm great with kids and I love belly rubs (who doesn't?). The vet thinks I'm between a year and eighteen months old so I probably won't get much bigger but I do need to fill out some - I got pretty skinny living on the streets of LA before the car accident but my foster mom has been working on that and I've already put on quite a few pounds!

The minimum adoption donation for adults is $375 and the adoption donation for puppies is $500. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible when permitted by law. The adoption donation provides that all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis ( i.e., puppies who will need to be altered by 6 mos old). Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
