A volunteer writes: Good golly is Miss Molly ever soo sweet! She always looks sleepy-faced (in the cutest way possible!) and is just such a good, loving girl! She doesn’t pull much on leash, seems housebroken, and has been waggy and soft when we’ve passed other dogs. She is incredibly affectionate and has lots of snuggly moves up her sleeves! Her signature one? Resting the entire weight of her head on my knee before going in to thoroughly kiss my face clean! She is very curious about everything going around outside, but her favorite observation deck is my lap (where she becomes so floppy and pliable you might think she was missing a few ribs!). Clear your schedule, come meet this special little lady at Brooklyn ACC, and then fill all of your days (and heart!) with Molly!!

Toy: 1.No interest.
Summary: Molly was friendly and social towards the assessor.
When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Molly displays soft and social body language with male and female dogs. Molly was surrendered as a stray so her past behavior around dogs is unknown. The Behavior Department recommends that Molly be placed with dogs that match her calm sociability.
Upon intake Molly was relaxed and allowed all handling.
During her medical examination, Molly was friendly and affectionate, she allowed all 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)
