UPDATE: Molly was updated really fast from North Shore Animal League America. Check out more here though.
With another week of 2017 gone by, we are so excited to share yet another adoptable pet who is anxiously waiting for their forever home at North Shore Animal League America’s adoption and rescue center. For well over a year, we have been featuring animals – cats and dogs – every week, in hopes of finding them the loving family they deserve. Fortunately, thanks to our loyal readers and partners at North Shore, we have been able to place almost every dog, cat, puppy and kitten we have put up on our “Adopt Me” page.
Even if you don’t live in the area, you can still contact North Shore Animal League, and they can guide you to the closest no-kill rescue shelter in your area for a similar dog or even arrange travel arrangements. If you have a friend you think would be interested, pass these articles on as we continue to strive to find homes for all of the pets we feature on our site.
North Shore Animal League America, which is the world’s largest no-kill animal rescue and adoption organization. Since 1944, the organization has strived towards achieving its ultimate vision: “To put an end to animal cruelty and euthanasia and to create a world in which all companion animals find compassionate permanent homes.”
To date, North Shore has helped find homes for over 1,000,000 dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens. With their main headquarters in Port Washington, New York, North Shore provides crucial resources such as a pet adoption center, a pet health center that offers affordable veterinary care and much more.
Now…without further ado…meet Molly!
Four-year-old Molly is a Lab/Boxer mix, who was fortunate enough to be rescued by the folks at North Shore from down in Tennessee. Molly is a medium-sized pup, who has a mainly black coat of soft fur, with a little bit of white near her chest and snout. She has adorable dark brown eyes and perky ears.
Molly is a fairly mellow dog, who loves going on long walks, as well as getting belly rubs and ear scratches from her favorite two-legged friends. Given her laid-back demeanor and obedience, Molly is truly the perfect companion for a day at the park or beach.
Labrador Retrievers, also known as Labs, were initially bred to be both friendly and useful work dogs. Historically, they were employed as fisherman’s helpers, as they were notably intelligent, fast learning and obedient. Nowadays, Labs are often seen as companions to hunters, aid dogs for those with a disability and search and rescue dogs.
Additionally, due to their sweet nature and warmth, Labs are frequently utilized as therapy dogs. They can be seen visiting homes for the elderly and hospitals. Thus, it is not surprising that many owners liken their Labs to that of an angel. Their warmth and friendship has allowed Labs to become the most registered breed with the American Kennel Club. Right away, you will see that Molly inherited many of the shared traits amongst Labs that have made them the popular breed that they are.
As mentioned, Molly is a notable well-behaved dog. She knows to follow basic commands and is already housebroken, which means she knows to do her business outside. Molly is the perfect addition to almost any household, as she is very gentle and is simply looking for a family to share her love with.
Rosie Tombolo, the Kennel Manager at North Shore Animal League America notes, “Molly enjoys spending time with her human friends here at Animal League America. She loves to give kisses and receive hugs.”
The staff at North Shore notes that Molly is a particularly quirky, but always loveable, young adult dog. She would likely do best in a home with dogs (if any) that are also respectful and relatively well-mannered. In addition, if any potential owners who want to adopt Molly already have some four-legged friends at home, North Shore recommends that they be brought in so that Molly can meet her potential future housemates before heading to her new home.
