Meet Bolt, a lively and energetic Patterdale Terrier. This little diva is full of life and loves nothing more than being the center of attention. We guarantee he will charm anyone who meets him with his gigantic personality.

Bolt loves to play games like tug-of-war and keep away, and he's always willing to work for a treat. He especially loves nose work and puzzles games and enjoys a new challenge. He would do great in an active home with plenty of opportunities for exercise, such as hiking, running, and agility training.
As a headstrong breed, Bolt will need an experienced owner who can provide him with the necessary patience, understanding, and ongoing training he needs and deserves. Bolt is always eager to please and loves to learn new commands and tricks.
