Little Miss Molly has endured such a trauma the last few months. Her beloved owner died, and Molly was passed from one relative to another. Nobody wanted Grandma's tiny dog. And somewhere along the line, Molly was abused. She is now very hand-shy. She cowers and tries to bite when your hand approaches her head. She can be petted on other parts of her little body, just not her head. She gives sweet kisses. Just don't touch her head.
Molly needs a patient owner and a quiet home. She needs to learn to trust again, that the human hand is not going to hurt her. A good article on adopting an abused dog can be found at http://www.pet360.com/dog/adoption/adopting-an-abused-dog/mdCIPxLjPkOA_RCUseqzXQ
Molly is spayed, current on her vaccinations and microchipped. She is 8-10 years old and in good health for a senior girl. Is this precious dog meant to join your family?
