Available Dogs - Molly

Molly 14

Hello everyone! My name is Molly and I am a 6 ½ year old female, but they say 6 is the new 3, and I sure don’t act my age! I am full of energy and have been told I am such a good, sweet dog! I am petite for a Golden, and I weigh about 60 pounds.

My foster mommy takes me for walks to keep up my girlish figure. I LOVE going for walks- it’s one of my favorite things to do.  Of course, I do have what my foster mom says is ‘wanderlust” (whatever that means!), so she says a fenced in yard with no escape routes would be best for me. 

It can take me some time to adjust to other dogs, so if you are patient and will work with me, I would love a playmate. I tend to try and assert my dominance with other pups, but once I am adjusted, I just love being with everyone. Of course, I also love being the center of attention, so a home where I am the only pup is just fine with me!

I have a kennel and do just fine with one, but I prefer to be out and about with you, so I’m hoping to find a family that has time for long walks, belly rubs, snuggle time, fun trips, and did I mention belly rubs??? I love them so much!! I have also been working on my leash manners, and my foster mom says I’m doing so well, but I would like to keep practicing those skills with you!

Because of my energy, and skills I’m practicing, I would love to keep up with training classes with my new “forever” family.  I hope to meet you at one of our meet and greets so we can get better acquainted. My foster mommy says she just knows you’ll fall in love with me like she did! Until then, I am including some pictures we recently took- have a look and I hope to meet you soon!
