This is the most recent information available; however, it may change as we learn more about the dog.
RAGOM is very pleased to welcome Molly into its care. Molly is 8 years old and a lovely, gentle girl - a bit reserved initially, but once she gets to know you, she opens up and welcomes you with that famous Golden Retriever nudge and a bit of a happy dance. Molly entered into RAGOM with her sister Stella and they are truly a bonded pair -- they are devoted to each other, play with each other, and eat side by side. Wherever one goes, the other quickly follows.
Molly has good house manners and quickly learned that in this house, it's OK to get on the couch, so she's on her way to becoming a lap dog -- a big lap dog -- but she is great to cuddle with when the wind is howling outside. Right now, we're treating her as we would any dog when we're uncertain about their signals about needing to go outside. We let her out whenever she wakes up, after she eats, and when she's been playing -- so far, so good! Molly had her last litter this fall, and we're planning to have her spayed in a few weeks, once she's had a chance to recover from her C-section. She is in good health and currently on medications to take care of an ear infection. She is extremely gentle -- eats slowly and takes treats very softly. She absolutely loves to be groomed - she would let me comb her for hours, I think. Last night, if I stopped grooming before she felt it was time, she would give me the nudge to spur me on.
We're really just getting to know Molly, but we know that she lived with young children, other dogs, and cats, too. She has done a great job meeting our pack of 5 dogs and is starting to play with our youngest dog, although her preference is to play with her sister.
Because Molly is so bonded to Stella, we will be looking for a special home that can welcome these two sisters and keep them together. The bond they have is strong, and we can't imagine separating them.
Molly will be returning to the vet for her microchip and shots this week, and we'll schedule her surgery once she's up to date on everything. In the meantime, she's enjoying herself and settling in nicely.
