11/07/18 – Molly has been adopted! Hooray!
Molly is an 11 year old Labrador lady who came into the Oldies Club dog rescue because she was being left for long hours. Molly is in an Oldies Club foster home in Dumfries, Scotland, waiting for someone to offer her a permanent home to retire to.
A gorgeous old girl: Lovely Molly settled at her foster home within about 2 days and she is a delightful girl who enjoys the quiet life and especially enjoys pottering around the garden in the sunshine.
Can be left: Molly is fine to be left on her own for a few hours. She would cope easily with living with a part-time worker.
Good with dogs: Sociable Molly is friendly with other dogs when out on walks. Her foster carer has a 7-month-old pup and Molly gets on fine with the pup.
Needs a cat-free home: Molly isn’t good with cats and she tries to chase them when out on walks or in the garden. Life in the old girl yet, see!
Very good with children: Jolly Molly is great with children. She was happy to meet her foster carer’s grandchildren aged from 5 months to 7 years old. Of course, as with any elderly dog, Molly wouldn’t want to be pulled around by children, and any resident children would need to be old enough to know to respect Molly’s age and experience!
Enjoys regular gentle walks: Molly walks really well on the lead and will only pull if she sees a cat or the occasional bird. Her foster carer hasn’t let her off the lead. Molly is enjoying three 15-20 minute walks each day. She particularly loves a stroll on the beach or a walk in the forest.
Good in the car: Yes she is!
Molly’s favourite pastimes: Molly particularly loves eating toast in the mornings. She also loves her walks and lying in a shady part of the garden.
Molly’s ideal home: Molly would be happy with anyone who will take good care of her. She loves people and enjoys being fussed over. She needs a home without too many steps or stairs and with a nice garden for her to relax in.
Health notes: Molly is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and has been wormed and flea treated. She is arthritic and is on Metacam to help ease it and make her comfortable. She also has ear drops to keep her ears clean as she had a previous issue with a haematoma. Other than this, Molly is doing really well for her senior years.
Molly’s foster carer summed her up as: Laid-back and loving!
If you would like to offer Molly a permanent home, please read 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 on the UK mainland, 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.
