6/6/2010 Poor Molly has had to be put to sleep due to kidney failure. Oldies Club are very grateful to her wonderful foster Mum for giving Molly lots of love and TLC in her final months. Sleep well Molly :(
Molly is a 13 year old small-medium sized Crossbreed girl who is currently in an Oldies Club foster home in Bracknell, Berkshire. Molly is a very quiet and gentle girl and she needs a new home through no fault of her own. Her previous owner was ill and had to go into care, so Molly was looked after in kennels for a period of time.
A very good house dog: Molly took a couple of days to settle in and make herself comfortable and she’s now proving to be a very easy going dog. She doesn’t mind being left alone for reasonable periods of time and makes no fuss about it. She’s very welcoming and always happy to greet new visitors to the house.
Good with other dogs: Molly takes a mild interest in dogs out of the house. She’ll have a sniff at them, but so far hasn’t been particularly playful with them. She is generally good with other dogs though and her foster mum believes she’d be quite happy with another elderly and quiet dog for company.
Takes no interest in cats: Molly hasn’t yet come into close contact with any cats, but she tends to ignore any that pass in the street.
Mad about her walks: Molly absolutely loves her walks and she never wants to come home! She’s very good on the lead and is currently walked on an extendable one and stops when it reaches it’s full length. Because Molly is hard of hearing she doesn’t have any recall. However, she doesn’t wander too far away and always keeps her eye on you. She can be quite slow to keep up because she’s constantly distracted by all those lovely smells! Molly is very good in the car too, so would always be up for new and exciting walks further afield.
Molly’s favourite pastimes: Walks … and more walks! Molly lives for her walks and if you forget she’ll let you know when it’s walkies time!
Molly’s perfect home: One where she will get at least two good walks every day. She’s a very easy going and loving girl, but would really prefer a home without young children so she can have a little peace and quiet.
Molly’s health: Molly is spayed, vaccinated, wormed and flea-treated. She’s had a couple of teeth removed due to dental decay and has arthritis in her back legs, so she’s currently on pain relief for this. Molly is hard of hearing and can only hear loud noises. She arrived with an ear infection, but this has been treated with drops and has cleared up nicely.
What does Molly’s fosterer have to say about her: Molly is a pleasure to have around and is obedient as long as she can see what you want from her. She was quite subdued at first, due to her arthritis and other problems, but now these are beginning to clear up I am noticing her becoming more animated and lighter on her feet. She is a little overweight and we are working on that at the moment.
If you can offer Molly a permanent home, please refer to our Adoption Procedures for information about the adoption process. You can then contact an Oldies Club rehoming co-ordinator as follows:
Telephone: 0844 586 8656
Molly can be rehomed anywhere in the UK, subject to a satisfactory home visit, but note that you will be required to travel to the foster home to meet her.
If you would love to offer a home to an oldie but your circumstances aren’t suitable, perhaps you would be kind enough to sponsor one of the special oldies we are caring for that, due to health problems, are unlikely to be offered a permanent home.
