Say hello to the Unsinkable Molly Brown!

To find out more about her

Hi Matt! I am attaching a picture of Molly.

I actually call her “The Unsinkable Molly Brown” because she was up for euthanization twice and managed to be saved both times before coming to me. She is a foster pup from Peppertree Rescue. She was surrendered to Troy Veterinary Hospital because her owner couldn’t care for her properly anymore. She spent 65 days there. They were going to euthanize her after the first 30 but they got talked into giving her more time. They gave her another 35 days. At that point, she was up for euthanization again. A foster mom from an organization called Out Of The Pits (a pitbull rescue) agreed to take her to keep her from being put down and had her about 7 weeks. I have had her since Sunday.

Molly is a Rottie Mix, about 3-5 years old and weighs approximately 50-55 pounds.

She is SUCH a good dog. She is well behaved, she listens very well, she’s a love bug, she loves to play and she loves to walk and sniff. She knows basic commands (sit, shake, lay down) and also understands no and leave it. She is very curious and although she is calm and just chills out, she is very interested in what I am doing if I move around the house. She likes to follow you just to see what you are up to! She only barks when she knows it’s time to go outside and she gets excited. 
She is good with kids but just to be safe, I would suggest children that are a little older (as in, not toddlers, just due to her size).

She is doing okay on a leash. She loves to walk and sniff, so she pulls a little. I think with training she’d do great on a leash because she listens well. 
She loves to play with her toy and will let you take it. In fact, she tends to tease you in to taking it so you can play tug with her. She also loves to fetch it when you toss it.
I see no food aggression at all in her. She is completely housebroken. She is doing good with my cats too, seems more interested in them generally than chasing them.

She would prefer to NOT be in her crate, she has been being crated when I go to work. I coax her with a treat and she goes right in. I am hoping to get comfortable enough with her to not have to crate her during the day. I don’t see that taking very long as she is very well behaved.

Anyone interested can email me at saveapup11@gmail.com.

Thank you SO much for getting the word out about Molly!!! I can’t thank you enough for your help!

Suzanne

PS I love your website and read it daily! :)

    She looks like a sweet dog. I hope someone adopts her soon.

    Anyone looking to adopt, Molly sounds like the PERFECT family pet. She’ll be waiting for kids off that school bus very soon. No doubt about it.

    Can the foster parent answer? Is Molly good with other dogs? Doesn’t say in the email.

    Hi Matt, could you update us? How is Molly doing? I saw this a little late, and know someone who may be interested if she’s still available.
