Story
She is fine with animals. However, she is a bully. She is extremely people picky and does not like to be approached, she prefers to make contact. She is extremely food driven in any type of training. She will get into any food possible, if left unattended. She’s still very hyper. Overall, she’s a really good dog and just needs the love. I don’t have time to give her right now.

Story
Hi! We're looking to find Molly, approximately 5 months old, a forever home! She was found emaciated in early May. A found pet report was filed, she was scanned for a chip, and we've scoured the internet to find her original family, but it seems no one has been looking for her, which is unfortunate. Molly is a fantastic dog! She gets along great with our 7-year-old Staffy and our 3-year-old Schipperke. Finally, a pup that can give them a run for their money! We foster two senior Shih Tzus off and on, who don't care to play, and Molly doesn't bother them when they're here. She has zero aggression and will wait to eat on command. Bathing and nail clipping are a breeze. Walks are the best! She loves playing with our toddler—fetch, chase, be chased, climbing, and snack finding together. We would absolutely keep Molly, but we cannot keep up with her, our toddler, our own dogs, and responsibilities. It's unfortunate as she is absolutely worth the time and energy. Feel free to reach out!
