I walked Molly, probably for the last time, on Sunday. She's been transferred up to Toronto Animal Services North where she'll at least have a bit more space to stretch her legs. They've got large, enclosed yards and she can be let off leash for a bit of a run. I know she'll enjoy that since she loves to play. She hasn't really had a good chance to play in the four months she's been at TAS-South.
Molly and Bella at TAS West might share the record, or at least be approaching it, for the longest duration spent by a dog in adoption waiting for someone to take them home.
In the months she's been at TAS South, Molly's mouthing (it was never biting) has decreased noticeably but she still soils her kennel. It's very difficult, if not impossible to properly housetrain a dog at TAS-South since housetraining requires almost constant attention and there's just not enough staff or volunteers to provide that level of care. Up at TAS-North, however, they've got large outdoor yards where perhaps Molly can spend as long as she needs to do her washroom duties.
I know some of the volunteers at TAS-South have grown quite fond of Molly, despite her idiosyncrasies. It's hard not to get attached to a dog you see every week who doesn't seem to be able to catch a break. We all wish her the best of luck in her new digs and of course we wish her a home she can finally call her own.
The best way to check on the adoption status of Molly (and other dogs and cats and other small domestic animals) is to visit Toronto Animal Services adoption website or call (416) 338-8723 for the Toronto Animal Services North shelter. If Molly is no longer on the TAS adoption website, it's probably because she's been adopted already.
