Meet Usain Bolt

Adoption Fee: $650
Usain Bolt is a 1 1/2 year old Miniature Schnauzer mix who weighs 18 lbs. He was an owner surrender to our rescue. Looking for a dog with the biggest heart? That's Usain Bolt! He absolutely adores people, and he's not afraid to wear his heart on his sleeve. He's a cuddler, a kisser, and a snuggler! He's also super energetic and looking for an active family to go on long walks, runs, hiking adventures, and to play fetch - or any other game. When you get home from exercise, expect a long cuddle session on the couch. He's also looking for a person or family who is interested in teaching him manners and all he needs to be a good canine citizen.
Usain Bolt is a complete velcro dog! From the moment he arrived in his foster home, he started following his foster mom around and never quit! When you sit down, expect him to jump into your lap for cuddles. While his people are working, Usain Bolt sleeps by their feet or sits behind their chair. He even sits under his human foster sister's chair during dinner!
If you're looking for an activity buddy, Usain Bolt is your guy! He could play all day. He has energy to spare. He loves to fetch and go on long walks. He'd be a great candidate for hiking, and we suspect he'd be into frisbees. He's looking for someone to continue to set boundaries for him to let him know when it's time to play and when it's time to chill.
In his foster home, Usain Bolt wakes up at about 7:30 am. He heads out for potty, then comes back inside for breakfast. Then it's playtime! He spends most of the day going out for walks, playing, and snoozing until he has dinner at 5 pm. Finally, he heads off to bed in the crate at 9:30 pm and sleeps happily through the night.
Usain Bolt loves to play with other dogs, and he's happy to amuse himself by running around the backyard. He gets along with other dogs, large and small, though he is learning to adapt to other dogs' play styles and takes cues when he needs to give them a rest. On walks, when he greets other dogs, he is calm and gentle. He's lived with children, ages 10 and 12, and done wonderfully. However, he's learning not to jump, so he is better suited with older children and will need training. He's excellent on leash.
Usain Bolt is perfectly crate-trained and is working on house training. He is definitely teething and will chew on everything and anything; this guy is a power chewer! Be prepared to supply him with plenty of teething toys and extra durable toys made for the strongest of chewers. He is not a nuisance barker, but he will bark at people passing by the window. He's young enough that he can be trained out of this behavior if it's undesirable. He will dig so if you don't want him to redecorate your yard, be aware. Usain Bolt is smart and a fast learner. He is working on "sit" and "come."
Usain Bolt's ideal person or family is a very active one who enjoys a velcro dog and is excited to embark on training right away. He's a super snuggler and fun companion.
Usain Bolt is only an option for homes that have had a dog of their own as an adult. If there are any children in the home they need to be over the age of eight.
