Good golly, Miss Molly! Check out this beautiful one-year-old tri-color girl.
Molly is a fun-loving charming dog. Because she is young and is in a new environment, she has some adjusting and learning to do. When she arrived, she’s had a few accidents in the house but house training is going great now! She will sleep in her crate, but she prefers sleeping on the floor in her dog bed. Considerate girl that she is, she will save you the trouble of setting an alarm clock by letting you know in the morning when it’s time to go out.
Molly loves to bark at and chase squirrels and chipmunks. She especially enjoys joining the foster family’s dogs in the yard for a game of chase. In order for Molly to pursue her favorite pastimes, another dog and a fenced in yard are required. A fence is also a necessity because Molly will not relieve herself on a walk. She will only do her business in the yard.

It can take Molly some time to warm up to people, but once she does, she will demand attention from her humans. She will push herself between a person and any other dog the person happens to be petting. She gets along fine with kids, but children nine and older would be best. Molly is young and rambunctious. She likes to jump on people and would knock down smaller kids.
Additional and consistent training is a must for Molly. She’s fine with thunder but is not a fan of vacuum cleaners or lawn mowers. Continued exposure will help with this. She is a pretty good leash walker unless distracted by something. Molly already knows the sit and shake commands. She has recently learned the joys of jumping on a bed and will not get down even if you ask her nicely. That’s understandable. Beds are very comfortable and fun to jump on. She is a smart girl and will eventually learn to keep her paws off the bed. She likes all kinds of toys, especially the soft ones, and enjoys chewing on them. Molly readily jumps into the car and very much enjoys car rides. However, she will try to climb up front. She might benefit from a doggie seat belt to keep her from becoming a risk to the driver. Training will help Molly to become a good canine citizen and a more confident dog.
Molly is such an endearing girl. She likes being with people and will even settle down to nap under a desk if her person is working from home. She will poke you with her nose when she wants attention and is a natural at the Lassie style paw lift. And if you’re not already in love with her, wait until she puts her head in your lap and looks at you with those big brown soulful eyes. Good golly; this is one sweet collie!
