Meet Bolt! He needs a home today! 

He is being returned due to our human system failing him as it has so many other animals. His mom is devastated as this was not something she ever wanted to do and she did not fail him, he was failed by the city in which he resides.

Right now he is confused and wondering why his mom is so sad.  He lives with a 2yr old and a 5yr old and adores them.  He, also, has a four legged sibling.  His is a tragic situation and Bolt needs us now more than ever.  He could use some extra exercise to slim down to his perfect weight of about 40 lbs.

He is great with dogs, doesn't seem to care about cats, as long as they leave him alone, He loves being active. He will fetch balls, but his favorite toy is a herding ball. He will pull on the leash, but we are working on that. 

He loves to be petted and his favorite spot is on his mom's lap. He is crate trained and house broken. He can’t have stuffed toys, bones or rawhides because he swallows them. 

He will be a wonderful companion.  He is of course a herding breed so he thrives on things to do.

Can you give him that forever?

*The pet you are viewing is a rescued pet which is most often from an animal control facility and does not come with a pedigree. The breed(s) listed are our best guess and are in no way guaranteed. Sometimes the pets appear to be a particular breed(s) in the pictures we receive from our rescue partners and when they arrive we are surprised to see an entirely different breed(s) in person!  If you choose to DNA test your adopted pet, test results may vary from company to company and our breed guess may not be reflected in those results as it is just that, our best guess. It is with deep longing that we wish there was a breed called "cute" as we believe all of our dogs would fall under this new breed classification!

Completion of an Adoption Application via our website is the best way to show your interest in an animal and is the first step in our adoption process. 

*Animals who are not fully vaccinated and altered are not eligible for long distance adoption.

When you adopt a pet from Midwest Animal Rescue and Services, your adoption fee covers: Microchip and registration, Core Vaccines including Rabies, Distemper and bordetella, age appropriate heartworm testing or FeLV-FIV testing, sterilization, heartworm/flea-tick prevention and deworming while in foster care. 

Adoption fees are non-negotiable and can be paid by cashier's check, money order or credit card. We do not accept personal checks.

Any issues that arise after adoption are the full responsibility of the adopter after the finalization of adoption. Adoption fees are only part of the expense of owning a pet, so we ask you to consider the costs for the life of the pet before adoption. We recommend pet insurance.
