Monday Photo - Meet Molly

We have a new pup in our house! We spent all weekend going from shelter to shelter and finally found this one. She was named Angel at the shelter, but we decided it didn't fit her. We had to go back so she and Murphy could meet face to face. We've named her Molly. She's about 29 pounds, they think she's between 9 months and a year old, and she's made herself right at home.



We figure we have two weeks or so of intensive training on the invisible fence, so she's house and leash-bound for now, but she's settled right in. As I told some other folks - Murphy needed a pet.

They've listed her as a lab mix. I feel reasonably sure she has some boxer in her, too. She has four white feet and a white chest and tummy. She's a cuddler, too. So far, only Cosmo seems to be slightly offended - but not unpleasant.

aww she is really cute :D looks like a lab/staffie cross. I see more staffie or pitbul in her then boxer. either way it doesn't matter because she looks like such a happy girl and its great that you have adopted her from a shelter! :D

Boxer and maybe a little bull terrior looking around the eyes too perhaps? I'm so happy that you have found each other and that Murphy enjoys his new friend.

She's so pretty! And I'm so glad you ended up with a black dog. I just hated that article that I read that said black dogs are always the last to get adopted. I think Pit when I see her, not so much Boxer, but god knows I'm no professional. I hope you get her all settled in soon. I know she'll love being Murphy's dog! - Jenny Wren :)
