31/7/2020 Lovely Molly has gone to her new home and after a week’s trial her owners are smitten and have asked to keep her.

Beautiful Molly has lived with her family in Bridport, Dorset, for 12 years and has always been their best mate. She had a rough start to life but has been much loved all the years since. She is now 12.5 years old and has not adapted well to a new baby in the home. She has shown no aggression at all to the baby but has become anxious and nervous since the baby started crawling. Her owners feel they owe Molly a quiet and happy life rather than constantly being moved away from family time.
Molly loves lying in the sun, sleeping (she loves to find a comfy spot to curl up), walking, swimming and chasing sticks. Currently, she has two small walks a day or one longer one on the lead. She loves being in the car. Molly is used to her owners working long hours and she is perfectly content to be left on her own. She is frightened of thunder and fireworks.
Molly lives with another dog at the moment but she is unpredictable with other dogs. She is fine on the lead unless the other dog is being aggressive or is a small, yappy dog. She does not seem to like small, white dogs, so it’s not recommended that she is housed with another dog. Molly is happy to live with cats though. An adult-only, peaceful home would be absolutely perfect for her.
Molly has been spayed. She has mild arthritis in both back legs but does not require medication unless it’s particularly damp and cold in the winter. She can get a little bit stiff and Metacam tends to help. Currently, she is being given some joint care supplements and her owners are consistent in how much she is exercised.

Molly is being rehomed privately by her owner, Pearl, who has confirmed that she will take Molly back if her new home doesn’t work out for any reason. Prospective adopters will be home-checked.

Please mention that you saw Molly on the Oldies Club website.
Oldies Club suggests you read our article Questions for Adopters which is written to help people who are planning to adopt a dog from a private owner rather than a rescue.
