Dog's Name: Molly
Where does Molly sleep at night?
Molly sleeps downstairs with our dogs. Molly has got into the routine and as soon as we say good night she goes straight and lies down in the office. She sleeps all night, not a peep, no mess. Such a good girl.
How is Molly with current pets?
Molly has been great with our dogs, we have 4 dogs and have met friends dogs, no aggression or concerns.
Molly has played with another female dog when we stayed overnight with friends.
Molly met a friends cat and just ignored her.
Is Molly clean indoors?
Yes, Molly has been clean from the moment she arrived, no mess at all.
Can Molly be left alone?
Yes, Molly is a good girl, lies in the office and waits for our return, she has free access to all of downstairs. We have not heard Molly bark, even when ours do, she is quiet. Molly has been left for 4 hours with no issues. We have a spy camera so have watched her.
Is Molly out on walks?
Molly adores her walks, she sits for her collar and harness, hops in the car. Tail up and off we go. Passes through gates. Molly is off lead when we walk in quieter areas and her recall is great.
Molly can still be afraid of humans passing on walks, so we have been taking her for walks in busier areas, walking with friends with their dogs. Molly is getting braver every day, so as long as new adopters continue to help her adapt she will become less worried with time and exposure.
Molly is fine walking along roads with traffic.
How does Molly walk on the lead?
Molly walks lovely on the lead, no pulling. We use a harness, if Molly is worried she will come closer to me. She is now off lead on her walks.
If Molly meets people on her walk we try and stop to chat she will not actively approach the humans but is alot calmer with exposure.
We have now walked with friends and their dogs, she has slowly got used to them, but new home she may revert until adapts
Has Molly met with other dogs?
Molly is a kind girl, she would love to play with my dogs but they are not very playful. Molly played with another dog and had a greta time, so would benefit form a dog who would like to play.
No issues or aggression when meet other dogs out on walks.
How is Molly with humans?
Molly was shy initially, hid in garden bushes. It did take about 2 weeks to fully trust us but once she trusts she is loyal and comes to us for reassurance. Always smiling and wanting a cuddle.
Molly needs to get braver with strangers, this is her area she needs exposure and help with. No aggression just wary and will back away. No barking.
Molly is fab with us and gives us the best greeting in the mornings and during the day, tail wags and kisses. But she will need a few days and another dog to bond with her new family. But she is a very affectionate and happy lady.
We have taken Molly to a friends home, Molly was very good, came close to me for reassurance but did not try and hide and slept on the rug whilst we chatted. Stayed overnight at another new home, and she just lay by my feet, she has stayed with other dogs in that home why we left them overnight and slept well, she will adapt nicely to a new home.
Have you noticed if Molly is afraid of any particular things?
Yes, Molly is afraid of sudden movements and noises still, but when she hears or sees something a few times she accepts it. Molly follows me around when I hoover, and even will be in the garden when mowing the lawn. She is curious and wants to be part of it all. She maybe wary at first but will keep checking and adapting, printer, hoover, TV no issues at all.
Molly needs a home that will be repetitive with any new things that scare her to allow her time to accept. But in a short time she accepts easily.
Any other useful information?
Molly can be initially worried and wary, but with confidence and exposure she accepts new noises and surroundings quickly. The key is not allow her to shy away but repetition and she accepts.
Molly’s Ideal home:
Molly loves other dogs in the home, we have 2 females and 2 males, all neutered.
So any new family will need to appreciate Molly may revert for a week or 2 but when she bonds with you with some forced cuddles on the sofa, lots of talking to her, her tail starts to wags and she smiles, Once bonded she is a joy and a lovely sweet natured girl.
Molly is a very easy girl to have in the home, no aggression, clean, very affectionate. She loves a cuddle and will roll over for belly rubs. But all families need to give her a week or so to bond and you will see the fun and affectionate and very well behaved girl she is.
Exposure and consistency, a routine, other dogs and she will be a pleasure to have join any family.
