Molly is approximately 12 years old and we think she is a Cattle Dog, Australian Shepherd mix. She got the size of a cattle dog, but the shape of an Australian Shepherd. She is very calm and relaxed in the house. As she is older she does enjoy a peaceful and calm environment.
She isn’t huge into chasing toys are balls, but she will happily deconstruct a toy if you give her one. She is very treat motivated. She does struggle with begging for food as she’s obviously been rewarded many times over for it in the past, but with a little training and practice she could quickly be trained out of it!
Molly is very sweet and has a great personality. When you fill up her food bowl you will be rewarded with the cutest little “happy hops” from her. She does enjoy getting out and walking as well as exploring the backyard. However, she is very much an indoor dog and does not want to spend very much time outside when it is cold.
She does well with other dogs, yet she is a food stealer and will happily eat all other dog’s food so free feeding her with other dogs in the house would not be a good idea. She works best with getting a set meal for breakfast and dinner. She will growl at another dog if she feels the dog is getting into her bubble, but is not aggressive with dogs.
Molly and chickens are a no go! She will happily eat them given the chance!
Molly knows basic obedience commands and does not chew on household items. She is the perfect house dog! This little girl deserves a wonderful forever home!
