Molly

Molly is a beautiful 3 year old Golden Retriever who does not have the temperament to be a therapy dog (some people don't like to be licked in the face....go figure). She mastered "sit" and "shake" and does pretty good with "stay", but repeatedly fails at "calmly meeting strangers." Molly is on our website because we want to celebrate and validate her efforts. It's ok to try new things and find out that you have different strengths. Molly's humans love her very much even though she will probably never master "four on the floor". Celebrate what makes you different.
