Meet Molly H

  • Female, spayed, ~8 months
  • Fully vaccinated
  • Provided regular preventative care for parasite management (fleas, ticks, intestinal worms)

Molly was born ~September 2, 2021. She has been in our care from about 6 weeks old, having been dumped in a cardboard box with her brother and sister, Fleur. She was an overwhelmingly shy pup, and took much longer than others to socialise. She “flights” or “freezes” when fearful. Molly still has some ways to go with interest in strangers, she maintains significant distance and does not allow new people to pet her. In the last 2 weeks she has begun “food guarding” her bowl. Her food security will improve when she has training and non-communal meal time.

Molly is a quiet, mixed breed Thai dog. Based off the genetics on our island, we can say she classifies as an Asian spitz mix including: Thai ridgeback, and other spitz’ for this geographical region. These are companion/hunting animals, quiet, athletic/medium build dogs. She has semi-floppy ears, a curled tail, and medium hair. At the moment is 14kg, as a female we would not expect her to be more than 16-18kg fully grown.

She is happy when you come home, eagerly receives pets and loves to cuddle. Molly sleeps on the bed and likes to be right next to you and even share the pillow. She enjoys being the little spoon and will sleep like that most of the night. She is slow to warm up, but once she adjusts to your family, she is a loving and physically affectionate dog.

Nervousness: High nervousness to human strangers, sudden movements, etc. Will need significant training to adjust to a non-rural environment, and to you as her new family.

Exposure to Dogs: Raised in a sanctuary environment with a large pack of dogs, of varying ages. Has lots of practice as a foster sibling to younger dogs and puppies.

Exposure to Cats: N/A

Suitability for Children: Due to high nervousness and fear, we currently advise no small children at home. To maintain a calm and stable environment with regards to sound and movement, and respect of personal space for the dog.

Grooming: Minimal maintenance required. Bathing as necessary, nail trims, and dental care. Currently receives bathing and nail trims, minimal to no shedding.

Energy: This is a calm, medium energy dog. She loves to hunt: spiders, flies, geckos, mice, etc.
