Molly is a tricolour female, born on 16th November 2012. Molly needs a very experienced and understanding home, as she suffers from sleep startles and has had a couple of bad reactions. Molly is neutered and microchipped.
Molly has been returned to Beagle Welfare, as she has now had two incidents of reacting badly to her family while she felt vulnerable. Both of these incidents resulted in Molly showing aggression to her humans. This means that we absolutely cannot rehome Molly to a home where there are children present, and everyone in her new home must have a comprehensive, thorough understanding of her needs, and what sleep startles mean for both dog and owner.
Although Molly is ok with dogs out and about she would need to live as an only dog in the home.
Molly is an enthusiastic walker, who can pull on her lead. She has been walked on a harness, as she has previously pulled so hard on her collar that it has slipped over her head. She has only been allowed off lead in secure, contained areas, as she has never been taught recall. She is happy to travel in the car. Molly can react loudly and energetically when she sees other dogs while out for a walk, which may come across as aggressive, but is just Molly indicating that she wants to go over and say hello.
At home, Molly is house trained and crate trained, and used to being on her own for a few hours. She is not destructive and has never tried to escape from her secure garden. She will return stolen items when told to drop them.
Molly has never lived with cats, so her new home should be a cat free one. Molly is very wary of younger children, which leads us to believe that she would be happier in a home with adults only.
Molly’s last owner says that she is a mischievous and playful character, who just wants your love and attention. An understanding and patient home, where Molly can enjoy her own space, as well as cuddles with her people, when she’s ready, would be ideal and would allow her to blossom. Ideally, Molly’s new family will have experience of beagles, and terrier-type breeds, as she does need careful management; however, if she’s handled with tact, and shown respect by people who understands her condition, we’re sure Molly will find her perfect forever home.
