All about Mollie
Mollie is a wonderful girl with loads of love to give. This sweet Newf mix is super friendly, adores spending time with people, loves belly rubs, chin tickles and hugs. It is so apparent that she has known only kindness in her life. She's a charming, affectionate girl who is eager to please and just wants to be adored.
She has excellent house manners, she is quiet and stays out of trouble. Typical of Newfs, she is a total velcro dog who follows her foster mom around and wants to lay right in the middle of everything that is happening. So cute! She loves to accompany her foster mom to help with outdoor chores like feeding birds, tending to farm animals, getting the mail, etc.
She has joined a foster home with several other dogs and is well mannered with everyone. Having said that, she doesn't enjoy spending time with dogs who are hooligans, or who are pushy and in her face. She'd be happy to join a family where she would be the only dog in the house, or where there is another mellow, respectful dog. Dogs who will be jumping on her and pestering her are not her idea of great friends.

On arrival Mollie was quite overweight. Her thyroid function is normal, so her weight issues appear to be diet/exercise related. As mentioned, this gal was very well loved, and maybe she was on the receiving end of a few too many cookies..... With a healthy diet the pounds have melted off.
The ligaments in Mollie's knees were both totally ruptured leaving her with no stability or support in her knees and experiencing significant pain. On December 15 she underwent bilateral TPLO surgery performed by an orthopaedic surgeon. Mollie is all healed now, her rehab is basically complete and she is ready to start her new life! She now has great mobility!
