About Molly

Good golly, Miss Molly! This 2-year-old Rough Collie is an active girl with adorable antics that will always be able to put a smile on your face! She’s got energy to burn and loves to run, showing off her greyhound-style moves. She does the cutest audible cheek puffs with a range of entertaining variations. And when she finally settles down to sleep, she’s most comfortable resting on her back with her legs sticking up into the air!

Molly is shy at first with new people and dogs, but she warms up quickly. Her foster mom says that she’s like a puppy in some ways, as if she’s discovering things for the first time. Once Molly has settled in, everything is great, fun, and worth doing or investigating. Molly also thinks that she’s a lap dog and loves to snuggle and give kisses to her foster parents!

Molly does well around other dogs, and she’s been working on learning dog manners, like giving the resident dogs space and sharing attention from her foster parents. Other dogs really seem to help her to work up the confidence to experience new things and to trust new people. Because of this—and because she’s a high-energy gal who loves to run and play—Molly needs to have at least one spirited dog sibling in her forever family to join her in frequent bursts of zoomies. She also needs to have a yard with a physical fence to give her lots of opportunities to run and play fetch throughout the day.

Molly is coming along nicely with her house and crate training, and she’s already pretty good with walking on leash. She’s also mastered basic commands! Molly is smart and loves to learn, and she’s also pretty motivated by treats, toys praise, and affection. We’re sure that with some patience and effort, she’ll be a good Collie citizen in no time! Plus, her love of learning, boundless energy, and agile ninja moves might be able to be channeled into becoming a fantastic agility dog.
