Facts about Molly Pitcher

  • Breed: Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog Mix
  • Color: Tricolor (Tan/Brown & Black & White)
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
Molly Pitcher had some sad days recently. Her 80 year old dad passed away and his kids came into the home, put Molly Pitcher's mom in a senior home and gave away her two doggie companions. That left her with less than zero. The family members planned to just have Molly Pitcher put down because "she is old" but a kind rescuer saved her just in time. She reached out to us for help and we were grateful to have an empty dog bed available.
She is 12 years old and about 25 lbs.
Molly Pitcher was severely depressed when she first came to us. She has since settled in, found her happy and is a waggy tail girl again.
She generally gets along with other dogs but thinks bothering cats is fun. Molly has a hard time going up stairs but loves to be carried.
Molly Pitcher has a large inoperable tumor on her backend. It may or may not limit her time remaining with us, we don't know. She's on medication for the days where she feels a little under the weather.
She can be reactive at times and has food guarding issues that we are working on. For this reason, we are looking for an experienced, adult home for her where she may live out her time, just being loved and hugged and spoiled.

About Tails of Gray

About Our Rescue Group...

Tails of Gray is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit rescue organization that offers a safe and loving sanctuary for senior dogs regardless of breed, health or ease of placement. Our goal is to prevent needless euthanasia through the offering of shelter, adoption, foster, hospice and education.
All Tails of Gray senior dogs are spayed and neutered, microchipped and receive appropriate veterinary care and treatment.
Tails of Gray welcomes the unwanted and heals the sick. Those precious senior dogs who cannot be healed will spend their final days in a comfortable environment where they experience unconditional love, some for the first time.

Our Adoption Process...

To adopt a dog from Tails of Gray, you must:

1. Complete an online application for adoption.
2. Meet your prospective pet. If your application to adopt is approved, our adoption coordinators will schedule a meet and greet with you and the senior dog you are applying to adopt.
3. Complete a home visit. If you (and your family) and the dog are a good match for each other, a home visit is then scheduled and completed.
4. Finalize the adoption. After a home visit is complete, the adoption can be finalized and a new happy tail can be told!

The adoption fee is $200
