The Tampa Bay Lightning introduced its new team ambassador, a yellow lab puppy named Bolt, from Southeastern Guide Dogs today. The newest member of the Lightning will help make a “paw-sitive” impact on Bolts Nation. He can be found on Instagram and Twitter at @BoltsPup.
Bolt, born March 31, 2019, weighing 28.5 pounds, will serve as a team ambassador while also training to be a service dog when his Lightning career is over. He spent the first 12 weeks of his life in the Grant and Shirley Herron Puppy Academy at Southeastern Guide Dogs. After 12 weeks, Bolt left for boarding school with a designated “Puppy Raiser” from the Lightning organization. In a year Bolt will return to Southeastern Guide Dogs to continue his education and eventually begin his career as a service dog with a courageous person who needs him.
