Office Dog
Bolt is Dr. Alexander's dog, but he feels it's his mission to attend work at Ambassador Animal Hospital every day. He likes to lay on his bed in the office and closely observe the goings-on, making sure things happen according to his standards. He also finds it very important to protect us from the Fed-Ex man every day at lunch. Bolt has the most expressive eyes, and uses them to his advantage to beg for lots of treat. He lives with four kids at home, so his favorite activity in his free time is sleeping. He also enjoys playing with his doggie brother, Chief.
