And now a few words from me

Hi, I’m Molly, and I’m a wonderful, sweet girl. I lived with one family my whole life, but my dad got sick and didn’t realize how frequently he was feeding me, so I gained some weight. Because I need to get my weight back on track, I am now eating small amounts twice a day in my foster home. My foster mom also gives me homemade dehydrated sweet potato as a treat. Although I was sad when I first arrived in foster care, I am getting lots of love and I enjoy playing with my foster fur sibling, Slinky! I like Slinky, and am trying not to get upset when he comes near my food or toys. I have my own portable bedroom (my crate) that has my blankets and toys, and this is where I like to sleep. I love going for walks and spending time outside, especially now that the snow is here! I can’t wait to go outside and jump in the snow! Although my coat was long when I arrived in foster care, it was quite knotted, so I got to spend time at a doggie spa where I had a lovely bath and a haircut. Now I’m ready to find my forever home

And now a few words from my foster family:

Molly is an absolute delight. It took her a few weeks to start feeling comfortable with us, but every day we see an improvement. Due to her excess weight she is on a strict diet and fed twice daily; she has already lost 2 lbs. while in our care. She is brushed daily and goes into a trance while having this done. She gets along well with strangers and other dogs, and enjoys being petted by everyone, including children. Although she was an only dog in her previous home, she loves playing with Slinky, and they chase one another through the house. Molly is walked every 3 to 4 hours, and will loves spending time on her own outside too. When she arrived it was difficult for her to walk, let alone run, and her increased activity and weight loss are doing wonders for her. Go Molly! Her adoptive family will need to commit to continuing this effort for her health and wellbeing. Molly is very quiet and only barks when someone comes to the door.
