Female, Shih Tzu / Maltese mix, 1 years old,13 pounds

PLEASE NOTE: Molly is looking for an active adult home with a fenced-in yard and another dog. No exceptions.

Molly, our 1 year old, 13 lbs., Maltese Shih Tzu mix is an adorable, loving, happy ball of energy who would do best in an active home. Molly was found a few months ago wondering the streets as a hungry, skinny, frightened Stray. Our volunteer literally pulled her out of traffic. Little did we know at that time that she was completely deaf and couldn’t hear the cars honking at her! She has since been in foster care learning what a happy and secure home feels like for the first time. Because she is deaf, having someone with dog experience and time to bond with her is most important.

Molly was very stressed when she first came to us and we’re thrilled to see how far she has come in such a short time. Despite being deaf, she leads a very normal life. She’s a smart little one, and has already learned several hand signals we can share with you. The other dogs in the home are helping her out too, teaching her the ropes and doing Zoomies in the back yard and in the dog park, giving her lots of outlets for her high energy. For this reason, we feel Molly would do best with another young playful dog. If you don’t have another friendly young dog, but have room in your heart and home to adopt two rescues, Molly has a best friend here named Marty, another young Shih Tzu mix who is not deaf but has only one eye They are quite the couple! They like each other and can spend hours chasing one another and wrestling on the couch. It is not necessary that you adopt both. You can see Marty’s profile on this site and our website.

On top of being a little sweetheart with a ton of personality, Molly has a look that will simply take your breath away with her one deep brown eye and her one light blue eye. She is covered in a soft, gorgeous golden and white coat and is as loving and affectionate on the inside as she is beautiful on the outside. Molly thrives on attention. The more bonded Molly is to her human, the more confident she becomes. Our little cuddle bunny is now 100% housebroken, spayed, UTD on her shots, heartworm negative, on preventives and microchipped. She is in Lake Worth FL and if you live in driving distance and want to adopt her, please fill out an application below and we will get back to you to discuss in more detail.
