*****This is a courtesy post for a family in need, they asked for help to find just the right home for their beloved Molly. It was not an easy decision but a necessary one for a family emergency. ******************************** Just look at those special pictures, obviously Molly is a very much loved dog and is the heart of her family. She looks so previous, and how sad it is to think her little heart will break when she finds out she will be getting a new home. But, it is with high hopes that we can help Molly find that extra, extra special someone that will love Molly and give her a great home to live out her golden years. Molly is 13 years old and 38 pounds. Her breed(s) are a guess, she is a great mix we could say! This is from Mollys' family: 'I found Molly in 2014 from a Craigslist pet adoption ad, and adopted her soon after from a family of 4 who where moving. This family also had a another smaller dog in the home that Molly grew up with, as well as 2 small children ages 2 and 4. I have had Molly as part of my family for 9 years now. It has just been myself and my son in the home since we got her, prior to my son going off to college last year. Molly is around family members with other dogs often, and for the most part gets along with other dogs fairly well once she warms up to them, but can be somewhat defensive meeting for the first time. She is great with kids of all ages, and is very tolerant to the inquisitive pokes and pets and gets excited around alot of activity. She likes to play, but gets tired easily and retreats to go lay down when she's had enough. Molly does not do well around cats. She likes to lay in sun spots around the house and at her age, sleeps most of the day. She loves walks, prefers the right side of the sidewalk, and will walk in step with you and not pull. She is house trained and crate trained, and sleeps in her crate at night where she feels safe and cozy. She loves blankets and her squeaky toys, and often hides them in her blankets to play with later, but they are always close to her. Molly loves baths and swimming, but will not jump into open water unless she can see the bottom. She likes routine and will remind you when it's time to take a potty break or her water needs refilling, and is responsive to commands sit, give me paw, stay, lay down, up, down, and leave it. Molly does need a leash or tether at all times when she's outside as she tends to get distracted by squirrels and rabbits and run after them. She is a sweet and loving companion, but is not as active as she used to be. Molly would be great with an older family or someone who lives alone that is home often. Unfortunately, I am needing to relocate out of state rather quickly for a family emergency and Molly will not be able to come along with me. I have tried every friend or family member I know, and they don't have the ability to take on another dog at the moment. I am hoping to find Molly a good home as quickly as possible. ' We think Molly sounds like a pretty AWESOME girl--and we thank you for reading her story and considering her for your loving home!! If you can offer Molly a loving home for the rest of her golden years please email Kristine at [email protected] There is not an adoption fee.
