Meet Molly

Although it was tough losing Maggie a few months ago, we realized that we have always had a dog, from the time we were kids, and missed it. We started looking for a dog, and found Molly at a rescue organization. She's a labradoodle (or poodleador) We are on a 2 week trial and after that she's all ours.
Molly is 2 with tons of energy, has rarely walked on a leash, spent way too much time in a crate and poor thing came with a shock collar for barking. She loves everyone.
I'd forgotten how much work is involved with training a dog, but that's okay because she is well worth it.

Poor Jinx is a little unsure of this new bundle of energy, but follows her around, I think out of curiosity. Molly really wants Jinx to play with her stuffed duck. They cat can't be too put out, because right now they are napping within a few inches of each other, well Jinx has one eye open just in case.

See what I mean, this was after a 4 mile walk. Still ready to play.

What a sweet face filled with love. Molly is a very lucky girl. Abby would love to play with her. She'd probably wear Abby out though. :o) I think Molly and Jinx will be the best of friends.

She'll settle!! She'll learn your ways and what to expect. She's adorable and very happy!!

What a lovely dog, she's clearly loving life with you. I wish our cat Rosie was more interested in Ruby, but she spends all day upstairs and hisses if she even sees the dog.

She's gorgeous Lynn...I have heard that labradoodle's are really good dogs...if they are anything like a labrador she will be fantastic!!!

I hope things work out for you and Molly. She looks like such a sweet dog. Sounds like she had it a little rough and I am sure that once she gets used to everything she will be less ski-dish.
Good luck!
