Molly Malone

From: Texas

Me sweet granny always said I look as if was splashed with a bucket of black paint.! But no! It’s just me beauty spots showin’ through. Lucky the beauty is natural, cause I’m really no a fancy girl. I’m a roll with the punches and come up smilin’ kind o’ lass….the kind o’ girl who sees the bright side and a wee bit o humour in all life offers!
Aye! And it’s almighty lucky that I am…or I’ll tell ye, these 11 puppies would have driven me to drink!
No matter what happens, I just bounce back smilin’! It’s me nature to look on the bright side and count me blessin’s. There’s enough o’ them others grumblin’ about their lot in life, wi”out me joinin’ the clabber!
Me name is Molly Malone, named for me mum who was a fine dog too! I’,m 2 years old and weigh 50 lb. As ye could imagine, I get along right well wi’ all I meet be they on two legs or four. me.
Now, I dinna want ye to be thinking I’m perfect. I just may have some habits that want improvin’. Nothin’ big, mind you, but as we’re puttin our cards on the table, I must confess to being a counter surfer and a chaser of squirrels.

Foster insights/Backstory: Molly was found pregnant and on the streets of Texas. Luckily for a kind person she made her way to a foster and then brought to Canada by NDR.

She recently gave birth to 11 puppies and did amazing.

Molly is a very sweet girl that just wants love. She will be her adopter’s shadow and likes to know where I am at all times.
She is perfectly comfy sleeping most of the day away while I work.

She has been living with my NDR Alumni “Rugger” while here. They were perfect before she gave birth and got along great. Post-birth she needed some space and a slow reintroduction to him. Now they live calmly, but if attention is being handed out she will make sure she gets some too.

On walks she pulls to begin but relaxes after a few mins. She has met several people and other dogs on walks and she does not pull or lunge or bark.
Squirrels are her nemesis….she will charge and pull to get them.

She is also a counter and garbage surfer so be aware with those and food.

She does not beg or whine for people food but for her own or found treats those are all hers.

Her housetraining has improved greatly and only occasionally has an overnight accident as she does not ask to go out.

All in all she is a lovely sweet girl that needs a loving home.
