Good Golly, we've got Miss Molly!
Molly is sweet and kind. Molly is a 6-7 year old, 45 pound, tricolor girl who came into foster care just a few weeks ago and this sweet girl has really started to open up. She is 100% gentle, calm and considerate. Molly immediately bonded with her foster sister setter and adapted to a busy household very fast. She does great with 3 active boys and, as you can tell from her pictures, she loves attention. She greets everyone who visits and just assumes that they love her as much as she loves them! Molly loves attention but also loves a good nap in the sun.
Molly loves to go for a walk and does great on a leash. She prefers to walk on the leash and not go for "jog". Molly is very comfortable outside in the back yard and really perks up when she is outside. She does great in the split rail fence and has not challenged the boundary at all. While the setters love to be outside together, she doesn't play with her foster setter sister.
Once inside Molly is calm and finds her spot on a dog bed. She spent the first few nights in a crate but then after realizing that the other dog in the house was not in a crate, she let her opinion known about wanting out! She now spends her nights in the kitchen/laundry room on a dog bed with her foster sister and does great. We think Molly will sleep anywhere that she is told to. Molly eats well and does perk up when meat is on the menu!! She only had a few accidents in the house and these were just immediately after eating her dinner. Now she runs right outside after eating and no more accidents! She will scratch at the back door to ask to be let out.
She does love attention and will soak up love like a sponge if her person is willing. She never tires of a hand petting her! We have been working on curbing the counter surfing and she really does seem to respond to commands pretty quickly. Molly appears to want to please and is not stubborn so we don't think any issues will come about with training as needed. She'll learn what you are willing to teach her. Overall, Molly will make a nice gentle companion.
Pam Miller is sure that sweet Molly will find her perfect forever home and family soon!
