Bolt’s favorite pastime is bolting after flies, and he hopes that one day he will be allowed to chase after those pesky ducks, too. Bolt is a two to four-year-old Yorkie mix who was surrendered to the Duplin County Animal Services on June 15th with his family in tow. There were four sweet little Yorkie mixes in total and, unfortunately, they needed a lot of help. All of them needed to be shaved down due to the condition of their fur, and they also had pretty bad ear infections. To top it all off, three of the four tested heartworm positive. Sadly, Bolt was one of the three.
Jennifer Watson at Ruby’s Misfits Animal Rescue in North Carolina reached out to RADAR for help with Bolt and his family on June 16th. We offered to assist in the cost of heartworm treatment for Bolt, Joy and Penny, which meant that all 4 dogs would be rescued. Bolt received his treatment on June 28th.
Bolt has a sweet side and a spunky side, both of which are irresistible. “Bolt is like a sweet little old man sitting on the porch swing after a long day,” Jennifer told us. “He loves to sleep all day and party at night. If he’s not sleeping he loves to run around the yard chasing flies wishing he could chase the ducks in the pond outside the yard. His cute one black ear and one black and grey ear only add to his cuteness. He has had some adjusting to do and gets scared at times, but he is a sweet, loving pup!” To see more photos of Bolt, click here.
RADAR paid all of Bolt’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $167.
