About Molly

Adoption Fee: $200

Hi, my name is Molly!  I have so much fun hanging out with all the ambassadogs and shepherd lovers at our Adoption Events. I'm still looking for my forevers, could that be you?  At our Homes for Dogs Project event hosted by Coldwell Banker, I  had the best time with kids who showered me with love and treats. And I also got lots of love at the National Adoption Weekend hosted by PetSmart Charities on Nov. 9th. 

My friend Theo has sponsored my adoption fee...from one senior, special needs shepherd mix to another to help make the dream of a forever home come true for me. It makes my heart so happy to be loved so much for Theo to have his mom make it happen. 

I was found as a stray and was brought into rescue after a Facebook campaign drew attention to me and found me a foster home - I am lucky to have been rescued and nursed back to health!  I got to attend Petsmart's National Adoption Weekend event in May - it was so much fun getting to meet everyone and sharing my story! I loved getting lots of pets and making new friends.

So...a little about me - I'm petite, pretty and white!  I've gained about 10 lbs since coming into rescue in October of 2018 and am finally at the perfect weight of about 65 lbs. I am about 10 years old, but don't let that fool you because I'm still full of energy!  I'm a really lovable girl who leans in for pets and snuggles whenever I can!

I am fully recovered from a really bad perianal fistula, which was a very painful infection in my back end.  It’s been over 13 months now and everything is looking good, but I still get nightly applications on my back end of a topical ointment called Tacrolimus just to keep things under control and prevent a flare-up.  I'd really love to find a quiet or moderate energy home with someone who's looking for a mature companion and who will be willing to continue my nightly Tacrolimus treatment, which my foster mom says is not a big deal at all.  And she thinks I'm worth it!  :-)

I'm a really happy girl who loves people, belly rubs, and my foster brothers and sister.  And sleeping!  I also really love, love, love going on walks, and I think I would also make a good jogging companion (for short distances) because I hardly ever stop to sniff or relieve myself along the way - I just like to go!  Check out the video of one of my morning walks with my foster brothers and sister at https://youtu.be/h5jKH-cyqZI.  You'll be able to see how much my bum has improved from those days with my current park video. I'm really easy going - I sleep through the night and when I wake up, I'm ready for breakfast and then a good walk or run.  At home, I enjoy lots of attention and love and will often nudge your hand or leg to ask for more.  And don't forget my belly rubs!  I'm a really good girl who doesn't have to be crated during the day, so I enjoy snoozing on my favorite bed while my foster mom and dad are at work.  I haven't been formally tested with cats yet, and though I have expressed interested in squirrels and other small critters, my foster mom thinks I might be able to live with a dog-savvy cat.

I would do best with someone who knows a little about my breed or is at least strong enough to handle me when I'm pulling hard on the leash during walks (I just get soooo excited!)  My foster mom and dad tell me I can't be any cuter, and I hope after reading this and looking at my pictures, you think I could be the perfect fit for you and your family!

Sweet Bishop headed to his first vet visit with Ginger on November 18th; they both got exams and began their puppy vaccine series. He was a hit with the vet staff for his mellow sweetness. Also, on November 13th, he attended our San Jose Meet n Greet, a big adventure where he snuggled into his volunteer for the day, enjoying the warmth and snuggles. He was hosted overnight by our volunteer family, who are adopting Bran.  We appreciate our transport volunteers for making it possible to have Ginger, Bran, and Bishop attend the San Jose event all the way from Sacramento.  Bishop and Ginger are happily back at their Sacramento foster home while our volunteers work on matching them to their forever families. More about Bishop; I am a snuggler extraordinaire and let Ginger take the lead a lot of times while I make sure things will be ok when we meet new people or are in new environments.  I get a little nervous on car rides; making sure I haven't eaten right before a ride is super helpful when the butterflies take over. At home, I play non-stop running, wrestling with Ginger, and take naps when we wear ourselves out. I'm the laid-back of my littermates, happy to play rough n tumble with Bran at first and now Ginger in the yard, running through the flower beds and taking long naps afterward. Snuggles are my thing, both with my people and Ginger.  I live in a super quiet house with lots of classical music; we are partial to Fleur De Lis. Our foster family works from home with plenty of love and attention.  The best news is that I have four other littermates also thriving with two other ShepHeroes foster families fostered in pairs. We came in under 5 pounds at approximately four weeks of age from a local shelter and just celebrated our 8th week birthdays.  We are chunky, happy, loving pups learning about potty training, or should we say our people have learned our patterns. We love affection, cuddles, chew toys for those sharky teeth of ours.  We've gone from eating, pottying, and sleeping all the time to active puppies exploring our houses, back yards. Our personalities are developing, and each of our foster families has distinct observations about us. There are two boys and five girls in our litter. And although we are shepherd mixes, we captured the hearts of ShepHeroes volunteers to open their hearts to us, especially since we were abandoned.  We will need to adopt folks who have raised shepherd or husky mix puppies with resources to raise us to be happy, well-adjusted, socialized, and trained adult dogs. We are available for matches now. Our adoptions will be finalized when we are spayed at the end of December or early January.  show less

Bran is adoption pending to one of our volunteer families in San Jose who lovingly hosted Ginger, Bran, and Bishop overnight so they could attend our November 13th Meet n Greet. We appreciate our transport volunteers for making it possible to have Ginger, Bran, and Bishop attend the San Jose event all the way from Sacramento.  Bran headed to his first vet visit on November 18th, along with Hazel and Tabitha, all getting excellent health confirmations and beginning their puppy vaccine series. Hanging out in their shopping cart to keep paws off the ground, Tabitha, Hazel, and Bran attracted lots of love on their last excursion. Hazel and Tabitha are happily back at their foster home while our volunteers work on matching them to their forever families. More about Bran; Until my pending adoption and move to my forever family, Shepheroes volunteers, I lived with Bishop and Ginger.  The best news is that I have four other littermates also thriving with two other ShepHeroes foster families fostered in pairs. We came in under 5 pounds at approximately four weeks of age from a local shelter and just celebrated our 8th week birthdays.  We are chunky, happy, loving pups learning about potty training, or should we say our people have learned our patterns. We love affection, cuddles, chew toys for those sharky teeth of ours.  We've gone from eating, pottying, and sleeping all the time to active puppies exploring our houses, back yards. Our personalities are developing, and each of our foster families has distinct observations about us. There are two boys and five girls in our litter. And although we are shepherd mixes, we captured the hearts of ShepHeroes volunteers to open their hearts to us, especially since we were abandoned.  Bishop and Ginger still live with my former foster family treasuring us and our puppy shenanigans; it's a good thing we gave lots of snuggles to make up for having triplets to raise until we can all head to new homes. They still live in a quiet house with lots of classical music; we are partial to Fleur De Lis. I'm now living with two teens, a resident dog, and toddlers who visit regularly.  I'm the energizer bunny of my littermates, happy to play rough n tumble with Bishop in the yard, running through the flower beds, and taking long naps afterward. I love a spot under the pomegranate tree. I'm independent, generally starting the shenanigans like playing with the drapes, rolling around in the sheets when my foster mom wants to snuggle, carrying my bowls to hint it's mealtime, and I need fewer cuddles than Ginger and Bishop.  We will need to adopt folks who have raised shepherd or husky mix puppies with resources to raise us to be happy, well-adjusted, socialized, and trained adult dogs. Our adoptions will be finalized when we are spayed at the end of December or early January.  show less

Wiggly Ginger, who likes to worm in your arms and gives kisses galore, headed to her first vet visit with Bishop on November 18th; they both got exams and began their puppy vaccine series. Also, on November 13th, Ginger attended our San Jose Meet n Greet, a big adventure where she brought so much love to the volunteer team. She was hosted overnight by our volunteer family, who are adopting Bran.  Ginger took over the best dog bed in the house since she was the only girl, needing a break from her pesky boy littermates. We appreciate our transport volunteers for making it possible to have Ginger, Bran, and Bishop attend the San Jose event all the way from Sacramento.  Ginger and Bishop are happily back at their Sacramento foster home while our volunteers work on matching them to their forever families. More about Ginger; I am a kiss extraordinaire, love crawling into laps, and enjoy a good adventure. Bishop and I play a lot now that Bran is at his new foster home until his adoption.  Bishop likes me to take the lead a lot of times when we meet new people or are in new environments.  I'm a tiny bit better than Bishop on car rides; making sure  I haven't eaten right before a ride is super helpful too. My people say we'll outgrow these butterflies. At home, I play non-stop running, wrestling with Bishop, and take naps when we wear ourselves out. I'm fond of outside playtime, romping through the flowers, leaves, the pomegranate tree as a hiding spot. As the only girl, I'm pampered as I was the smallest of my litter. Trust me, I've caught up with all the love and good food. I live in a super quiet house with lots of classical music; we are partial to Fleur De Lis. Our foster family works from home with plenty of love and attention. I am almost potty trained for my age, it's more like we have trained our people to know our needs and get us out frequently.  The best news is that I have four other littermates also thriving with two other ShepHeroes foster families fostered in pairs. We came in under 5 pounds at approximately four weeks of age from a local shelter and just celebrated our 8th week birthdays. The vet was speculating  I might have a bit of Sharpei since I'm not as shepherd-looking. We'll find out soon as one of our volunteers has sent in a swab of our littermates to see what might all be in our DNA. I have a little bit of sass and a mind of my own. Not sure if my dam had multiple visitors when she was in heat or if the shepherd genetics got muddled in me, my face doesn't quite look like a shepherd. I hope you won't hold that against me since I'm being raised by a shepherd rescue. I'm my foster mom's sweet little girl.  We are chunky, happy, loving pups learning about potty training, or should we say our people have learned our patterns. We love affection, cuddles, chew toys for those sharky teeth of ours.  We've gone from eating, pottying, and sleeping all the time to active puppies exploring our houses, back yards.

Hazel's had some adventures lately. She attended our San Jose Meet & Greet on November 13th at Pet Food Express in SJ, giving lots of kisses and snuggles to our volunteers and folks who stopped to share our love of shepherds where we also had Bishop, Bran, Ginger, and Tabitha. And her first vet visit was on November 18th, along with Bran and Tabitha, all getting excellent health confirmations and beginning their puppy vaccine series. Hanging out in their shopping cart to keep paws off the ground, Tabitha, Hazel, and Bran attracted lots of love on their last excursion. Hazel is happily back at her foster home, sharing all about her adventures with Tabitha, seeing their other littermates. And ready to be matched to her forever family.  More about Hazel; I'm Hazel, a shepherd mix pup being raised by a foster family with my littermate Tabitha. The best news is that I have five other littermates also thriving with two other ShepHeroes foster families. We came in under 5 pounds at approximately four weeks of age from a local shelter and just celebrated our 8th week birthdays.  We are chunky, happy, loving pups learning about potty training, or should we say our people have learned our patterns. We love affection, cuddles, chew toys for those sharky teeth of ours.  We've gone from eating, pottying, and sleeping all the time to active puppies exploring our houses, back yards. Our personalities are developing, and each of our foster families has distinct observations about us. There are two boys and five girls in our litter. And although we are shepherd mixes, we captured the hearts of ShepHeroes volunteers to open their hearts to us, especially since we were abandoned.  Tabitha and I live with a foster family that fosters lots of young ones like us. And we spent a couple days with a relief foster; they have a medium-sized dog and a couple of teenagers who were excited to have us over. We also met many toddlers at their house, easily running around with them since we know all about busy followed by naps.  I'm the blonde of our pairings and, at the moment, the independent, adventurous pup. In my role as the ringleader, I lead, and Tabitha follows. Snuggles are terrific, but I like them short since I'm a busy girl exploring our world. I thought the toddlers were amazing and so much fun.  We will need to adopt folks who have raised shepherd or husky mix puppies with resources to raise us to be happy, well-adjusted, socialized, and trained adult dogs. Our adoptions will be finalized when we are spayed at the end of December or early January.    show less

Ready to fall in love? Please check out my other littermates as I have found my forever family and am adoption pending.  I'm Koko, a shepherd mix pup being raised by a foster family with my littermate Lunabell. The best news is that I have five other littermates also thriving with two other ShepHeroes foster families.  We came in under 5 pounds at approximately four weeks of age from a local shelter and just celebrated our 6th week birthdays.  We are chunky, happy, loving pups learning about potty training, or should we say our people have learned our patterns. We love affection, cuddles, chew toys for those sharky teeth of ours. Finally, old enough,  we have all had our first vet exam and started our puppy vaccination series. Of course, we are so cute, all the vet staff fell in love with us. They also said to tell you we're healthy and thriving. We've gone from eating, pottying, and sleeping all the time to active puppies exploring our houses, back yards. Our personalities are developing, and each of our foster families has distinct observations about us. There are two boys and five girls in our litter. And although we are shepherd mixes, we captured the hearts of ShepHeroes volunteers to open their hearts to us, especially since we were abandoned.  Lunabell and I live with a foster family with an almost adult high schooler, a female and male shepherd, and a small senior female dog who allows us to share our foster mom's lap with her. We've definitely won her over. The shepherds let us crawl over them, guiding us in being big dogs. And we have regular visitors in our house, both humans and dogs for terrific socialization. We are good in the car and sleep while our foster mom works from home and rise to play during her lunch hour. Our favorite spot is near her work chair making her be super careful when rolling her chair.  Our people tell us that we're ready for our matches. We will need to adopt folks who have raised shepherd or husky mix puppies with resources to raise us to be happy, well-adjusted, socialized, and trained adult dogs.

Ready to fall in love? Please check out my other littermates as I have found my forever family with a ShepHeroes volunteer family who have been regulary visiting me and at times puppy sitting me for my foster family.

Snowy arrived in time to spend his first Howl-o-ween in the loving safety of his foster home. Although it would have been fun to have him dress up to participate in the spirit of the day, we gave him a pass this year. He'll have lots of years ahead to pawty for treats; on Halloween, he got them for being such a cute happy sweetie. We are liking all things about this affectionate 10-month-old boy who dealt with kennel cough, skin infections on his way to us. Treated at the shelter and started on a healthy path forward, we'll take it from here to put some groceries on his skinny frame and have him learn good household living skills along the way.  Like most covid pups, he's an adolescent that hasn't been many taught life skills. He's living with a super social, happy resident shepherd and experienced shepherd folks for us to learn all about him and to begin guiding him with consistent structure and lots of love. Snowy has been loving being with a playmate consistent with his easy meetings with both large and small dogs at the shelter.  Snowy has been sleeping quietly in his crate at night in the bedroom, where he can see his people drift off to sleep. He is generous with attention to his people and happy to please. Snowy has been following directions well and enjoying walks on leash in addition to playing with his people and the resident shepherd. He also rides comfortably in the car without being crated, patiently waiting for his person without anxiety when they hop out for quick errands. We expect he'll be good with older kids, and we'll need to expose him to younger kids to see how he's around them.  This lovely boy surely deserves to spend the Holidays in a forever home to treasure and love his easy-going personality. Adopters interested in Snowy should demonstrate experience with shepherds or other similar temperament large breed dogs, time to devote to his mental and physical exercise needs, further socialization and training. He's likely to thrive in a family setting with lots of walks, hikes, and playtime to engage his body and mind.  show less
