Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Terrier / Mixed (medium coat)
Weight: 9.8 lb and is skinny at that. She needs to weigh 12
Height: 12 in
Estimated Birthdate: 11/13/2013
Fence Needed: No
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC but you can meet me in Durham 4/14/2018.
Date into rescue: 3/10/2018
Reason for being in rescue? Molly was rescued from a NC shelter by a caring person who wanted her to have a better life. She was turned in by owners who either would not or could not take care of her sensitive skin
Special Needs?sensitive skin that is very yeasty. It is most likely allergy related. Molly is in a 30 day course of ketoconazole. It has helped tremendously.
What kind of home would be best for me? Molly shows a very definite preference to women over men. Any men in her home are going to need to be patient ones. She enjoys other dogs and would be okay with canine companions. We're trying to introduce her to a crate but she really, really prefers your bed.
What is my personality like? Give her just a bit of patience and she will love you forever and ever. Once she is yours, she is fun and happy, active and spunky. In other words she's very puppish and young acting despite her reported 4 years of age. She loves to go for long walks and runs through the woods and keeps up even with the big dogs with those long, long legs.
How do I act when I meet new people? To men very fearful. To women it just takes a few treats.
Tips and Tidbits: Molly has had a rough, rough life and it shows. At first, her skin was so painful that she hated to be touched but that is changing. She is fearful and timid around all men so far although that is also changing - she is responding very well to treats. She opens up to women quickly and easily. I think in a steady environment with loving owners who are dog experienced, she will become a wonderful companion. She is not a first time owner kind of dog. Please note we do not have documentation of spay surgery on Molly but a veterenarian has looked at her and feels she is spayed. Because exploratory surgery is difficult and painful, we are opting to place her on a spay contract. If she goes into heat, CPR will pay for the surgery if you bring her to one of our vets or the adopter may opt to use a vet of their choosing at their cost.
House trained? Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
