A volunteer writes: Good Golly Miss Molly!!! And you’ll be singing that right along with me when you meet our gorgeous Rockstar, Molly. Elegant and slender in her light tan coat, she smiles and wags her tail in friendship to all. Molly is likely housetrained, using the ‘facilities’ as soon as we were out the door, and while she pulls slightly on leash is easy to manage as we head to the park. On our way back she saw a bird sitting near a tree, and gave it a little sniff before it flew off. Such a gentle, sweet girl who’s respectful of other creatures! Molly loves treats taking them softly, and toss a ball to her and the game is on! She retrieves and brings it right back, letting me take it out of her mouth for another throw, or even better, giving me a quick cuddle and a kiss with the ball in her mouth. Molly seems to enjoy being with people more than with other dogs, but is respectful of dogs who are respectful of her. It’s no surprise that Molly rocked her behavior assessment as she’s so gentle, calm, soft and easy she should do well in a home with people who have
an average amount of dog experience. You’ll be singing Good Golly Miss Molly…..and creating your own lyrics something like…I’m so thrilled you’re in my life now. Come meet her today.
KNOWN HISTORY: None
Look: 1. Dog holds gaze with soft eyes, soft body. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Dog holds gaze for three full seconds.
Sensitivity: 1. Dog leans into the Assessor, eyes soft or squinty, soft and loose body, open mouth.
Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft, bit distracted.
Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw.
Squeeze 2: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw.
Toy: 1. No interest
Summary: Molly displayed no concerning behaviors on her assessment and was social throughout.
DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT:
5/14: When introduced off leash to the male greeter dog, Molly displays nervous body language with a tucked tail and low body. She avoids approach and keeps only to herself.
5/17: Molly displays a cautious body, tucked tail and whale eye when approached. She continues to avoid approach from the male helper dog.
5/18-19: Molly is slightly more comfortable off leash with a respectful female dog. She will allow greeting but will continue to ignore the other dog.
During her initial medical exam, Molly allowed handling.
We have no history on Molly so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment. However, she is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep her engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively
direct her energy and enthusiasm.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)
