I’ve been at the shelter waiting for my new family for over one month, so to celebrate you taking me home, my adoption fee is reduced to only $50, and I get two free post-adoption training sessions!

Molly is a resilient mama who at about 10 years of age had a litter of 3 puppies. This sweet and loving lady has had a lifetime of experiences that have turned her into an incredible companion dog.

Here’s what her foster parents had to say:

“She is an outside dog. We have an in/out house w/ a 12’ sliding glass door – given the choice of being in or out, she spends all day outside in the yard. In the rains, she still prefers to stay outside, albeit under a porch roof overhang so she’s not getting wet. She cannot tolerate other dogs/animals. She’s a great runner but only for shorter distances. After about a mile or so, her pace drops significantly. She’s not leash trained and will pull your arm out of your socket if you’re not prepared. She’s not a snuggler. While she appreciates pets and belly rubs (from the right person), she doesn’t like cuddling. We’ve enjoyed having her.”

She may be 10, but we’re unsure if anyone has ever told her! She has lots of energy and is quite youthful! This golden girl is looking for a moderately active home to settle down in. This precious dog is sure to bring you and your home lots of warmth and light. Stop by the Palo Alto shelter to meet this sweetie pie!

Molly’s adoption fee has been reduced to $50 as part of Cause for Big Paws Month!
