We had room for some dogs in our foster program so we went to one of our local animal shelters to do what we fondly call ‘shopping’. The kennel supervisor pointed to two dogs, Cali and Molly and asked if we would like them. I had to take a double look because Molly looked just like Scooby, a male dog already in our program. And they are both about the same age too. And they act a lot alike but that may be the adolescent behavior they both exhibit.
Scooby has a shorter more dense coat while Molly’s is a bit more like a lab, a little longer and not as sleek.
Brought Molly home and put her out with Scooby and they shot off running down the yard and both cleared the acre lengthwise at the same time! They love to run and play tug and bark at the chickens. They both play very well with other dogs too.
Molly is a sweet girl with lots of potential.
She does not seem to have a mean bone in her body and I suspect she would do well in most situations.
Please note that adopters will be expected to participate in a dog obedience class.
There are many reasons why taking your new puppy to a dog class is a good thing:
encourage bonding, increase pups self-esteem, learn new things or new ways of teaching those old things, meet new people who love dogs too, have resources to help solve those doggy behaviors we don’t want, and maybe, just maybe, get involved in the world of doggy sports because today, there is a multitude of doggy sports for everyone!
Here are a few: Rally obedience, agility, musical freestyle, lure coursing, barn hunt, hose work, conformation, herding. Your wallet may be lighter when you go out and compete but your life will be fuller!
Let us know if you need help finding a dog obedience class in your area.
Local dog obedience clubs are a good place to look!
I think Miss Molly would be a nice family dog or a great companion for a single person or couple.
She could be a running dog, an agility dog, a rally obedience dog and with some training, a pet therapy dog.
Molly is available for adoption. If you are interested, please fill out an application and email it to us as an attachment. Click here for adoption application
