Molly is a 6 month old Border Collie puppy. She is truly a one in a million superstar puppy who is able to settle well inside the home, is not at all manic but is also very intellegent and clever when you work with her. Molly is in foster with my little boy (age 4) and our dog Bonnie, she has slotted in like a dream here, loves playing with my boy and is gentle and listens to him well. She has accepted her place firmly underneath our own dog and communicates very well with her, they both love raw bones and happily munch them together.
She really has tons and tons of potential as an agility or heelwork to music dog as she bonds very closely with her handler and is very very quick to learn. Molly will need a home who enjoy training as she came to me with a couple of annoying habits and not much else !! She’s doing really well with her basic training and her lead work is also really coming on fast.
Unfortunately her previous owners let her bounce about pulling and barking when they met new people when out and about and just let her bounce all over people barking loudly when new people enter the room. I am working on this and she has calmed down a great deal in under 2 weeks, I am confident she’ll get past this and greet people nicely soon as she can do it when you remind her !! I have been working alongside an experienced behaviourist to sort this and depending on what stage we are at when you adopt Molly and your own experience, this may need to continue in her new home.
