Magnificent Molly joined the RAGOM family with her very good friend Sadie 15-039. They were sadly surrendered to a shelter when their owners were moving and couldn’t take them with. Molly and Sadie are a bonded pair of dogs, and we would really like to find a home for the two of them together. When Molly and Sadie first came into RAGOM, they stayed at a boarding facility until a foster home could take them. The facility took fantastic care of the girls during their stay there and we thank them for all the love and care they received.
Molly is an 8 year old yellow lab who is just the sweetest thing. She has a slender build and weighs about 70 pounds. Molly came into RAGOM spayed and is now up-to-date on all her vaccinations. All her other tests came back looking good, except she tested positive for Lymes. Lymes is a tick borne illness caused by a bite of an infected tick, and it is currently causing Molly to wear out easily and she has some joint pain and soreness. This is an easily treated disease and she will need to be on antibiotics for about 30 days to make sure she is well. In addition, we will test a sample of her urine to make sure her kidneys aren’t affected at all. Molly is also being treated for an UTI infection with some antibiotics. She has had no accidents inside at all, but does need to go potty frequently when we are outside. We have started Molly on preventatives for ticks and heartworms since spring is here. Today when we arrived home, we noticed that one of Molly’s eyes was a bit different looking. Our vet diagnosed it as Horner’s Syndrome and believes it is related to a small infection she has in her ear. Her eye will go back to being “normal” hopefully soon. It doesn’t seem to affect her at all and she acts no different. While it sounds like Molly has a few medical things going on, all of them will be resolved in the next few weeks with no permanent issues.
When I think of both Molly and Sadie, the best words I can think of to describe them are Pure Sweetness. They both get along well with other dogs, are well mannered in the house, love people of all ages and are very gentle.
Molly and Sadie attended a RAGOM event last week and loved all the attention. They will be at the Shakopee event on April 25 if you want to come and meet them!
As I mentioned before, Molly and Sadie are considered a bonded pair and we would like to see them adopted together. Honestly, I wasn’t really sure that I believed in the whole idea of a bonded pair prior to their arrival here. However, watching them interact together, drinking out of a water bowl together (and only together), playing, and constantly supporting each other, is amazing. I now believe in what a “bonded pair” of dogs is and really hope that there is a wonderful family out there who is interested in both of them.
We are still learning a lot about Molly. Be sure to watch for updates soon as she settles in here even more. If you would be interested in sponsoring Molly or donating to help cover the expenses of her medical care, Molly (and her foster family) would be forever grateful!
