Molly is a tricolour female, born on 16th December 2012. Molly needs a new home where she will not encounter children, as she struggles to settle around them. Molly is neutered and microchipped.
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 reacts 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. Molly would be best as an only dog in the house.
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. Molly has previously shown possessiveness over her food, and prefers to be left to eat her dinner by herself.
Molly has never lived with cats, so her new home should be a cat free one. We would recommend a dog experienced home, as Molly has sleep startles, which means that she reacts badly to being woken without warning. This has resulted in her snapping at people in her home on a few occasions until her family realised what triggered her. Everyone in her new home must be old enough to understand that if Molly must be woken up, it needs to be done calmly and gradually. Molly is very wary of younger children, which leads us to believe that she would be happier in a home with adults only, or adults with older children. Molly’s last owner says that she is a mischievous and playful character, who loves attention, and an understanding, patient home where Molly can enjoy her own space as well as cuddles with her people, would be perfect.
