found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, and up to date with shots.
There is nothing sweeter than a country hound, and Molly is a simple country girl in the best of ways, one whose pretty face reflects her open and innocent personality.
But it is her sweet and loving nature and heart-warming gratitude for the simple things in life that make Molly truly beautiful.
For Molly, meeting new people is an important event as seen in the way she eagerly and warmly greets everyone she meets, even the vet. Likewise, she is good with other dogs, and her open enthusiasm can coax even a reluctant canine companion into joining the play.
Molly has also assumed the role of protector of the back yard, and will alert her adopter to the presence of the cotton-tailed enemy, her arch nemesis, the bunny rabbit. She will often issue a clarion call (OK, it's more of a distinctive bark) to make her humans aware of the invasion, but the alarm can be quelled by a command or administration of a treat. Because of this tendency to chase any bunnies foolish enough to remain after hearing her alert, Molly needs a home with a tall fence.
Molly loves the outdoors, and is in absolute heaven when she is allowed to go for a walk. This love of the outdoors does not mean that Molly is backwards in her manners in any way. She is completely house-broken and crate trained and has impeccable house manners. She (almost always) sits without a command to exit her crate or when her leash appears (although her tail wags SO happily that it’s hard for her to sit still -- truly a case of the tail wagging the dog).
Molly adores children and would be a wonderful companion for older children (over 5). Molly's dislike of bunnies suggests she is likely to view felines as yet another scourge, so we think she will do better in a cat-less home.
Molly suffers from airborne allergies, which used to manifest themselves in skin irritation. Since coming into rescue, however, Molly’s existing skin issues have been effectively managed, and she has had a complete evaluation and diagnosis by a prominent veterinary dermatologist/allergist. Molly's allergies will need to be monitored, but fortunately this is an easy and inexpensive process. Hedgesville Hounds will provide guidance on how to do this.
However, these measures are a small price to pay to ensure the comfort of such a good-hearted companion.
And Molly is so very good hearted -- her frank admiration of her humans and her boundless joy at life's everyday gifts would make even the most cynical and cranky of us rethink our world view. We believe that her adopter will benefit profoundly from the lessons this simple dog can teach in perspective and optimism.
