|*Return Notes* 1/16/18 "Molly has no malice - such a loving girl. She is just very energetic and is incredibly strong. She pulls on leash which we worked on, and rewarded her when she would "leave it." Loves trail walks and has a ton of energy and would go for 3 hours long walks a day. Also needs lots of petting and love - she soaks it up!"
*Foster Notes* 12/17/17 "Molly loves to cuddle, she will pull a bit on the leash but will listen to stern commands. She loves to chase her kong ball, she will destroy and soft toys in minutes. She loves to eat so make sure all food is put away!"
Molly is a big happy girl! She loves people and gets along well with other dogs. She can sometimes start off with some dominant style playing at first that may spook the more timid, but she IS just playing and wants to be friends. Molly had been spotted in Garberville as a stray for over two weeks but no one took her in. One young man had learned that she had found herself with a local who had his rights to have animals revoked in the past. Worried for her safety, he was able to convince the man to give Molly up. In the two days that the young man had her, she was friendly and playful with his older female pup and although she showed interest in chasing the outdoor cats if they ran, her attention could be called away and he did not personally think that she meant them any real harm. He was about to leave town and asked if we would please take her even temporarily, but ideally until a home could be found. When she was found she had been spayed in the weeks prior and still had stitches in place. We tried our best to do detective work to find her last family but sadly have not been able to do so.
Molly will make someone a lovely companion. She is large, but not a brute. She is active but not hyper. She is outgoing and friendly, but not over pushy or needy for attention. She has lived in the country, but we feel she is confident and even tempered enough for city life. She could use some work on learning not to pull on the leash but all in all, Molly is a great dog who is ready for the next chapter in her life!
