Update on Miss Molly

She settles in quite nicely on my bed whenever she needs a nap. We love her dearly and we have started some training classes to work on some issues.. She is very hyper and it's hard to get her settle down once she is excited but we are making progress.

Since she is 4 years old and we are her 3rd home some habits taking a little longer. The gas stove drives her into a frenzy...the buzzer, the hiss of the gas, and clicking of the burners before they ignite. The phone also.

It's hard to know why on some things since we hadn't had her as a pup. But there are some nice surprises. She's very loving and eager to cuddle and love. I was teaching her to heel and sit and sometimes she would do this funny little hop and roll bit. It was obviously a trick that someone had taught her. Since she didn't always do it I couldn't figure out for a long time what hand gesture I was using that triggered it. I finally figured it out and we do it often now as she's really likes doing tricks. She's very intelligent and eager to learn.

We know her first home had 3 kids and 3 dogs and at her second home the owner worked and she was alone long hours. But our home is quiet, she's never alone, and she's receiving lots of love and positive attention.. She loves doing the chores with me and going for walks every day... We absolutely adore Miss Molly...

I am so happy for YOU and for MISS MOLLY!

I have a rescue dog..Jack...who had issues too when we got him. He settled in nicely. I often say to him that I wish I knew him when he was a puppy.

I have had other rescue dogs. There is something about them that endears you to them, as well as they to you. Its a special bond.

I feel sure that she will settle in. Something scared her in one of her past homes that gave off the sounds that make her react.

You just never know about dogs. I feel confident that you all will work through it.

She is really a blessing to you.

I agree with Cathy but I'm thinking Miss Molly is even happier she found you! I wonder what other little tricks she might have that will come out some day when you move your hands just the right way?
Miss Molly looks darling and I am so happy for all of you to have found each other.
Hugs,
Kerry
