From the Foster:

By golly Miss Molly!  What beautiful eyes you have!

Molly is a very sweet, timid girl who needs a quiet household and a very patient loving family. She doesn't like any excitement, prefers quiet solitude. Can be a bit standoffish at times but she usually sticks around her humans. Will back up if you try and pet her but once your petting her she likes it. And if your by yourself she'll come up and ask to be petted. She is superb with our kitty! Gets along great with all our dogs but doesn't like any kind of barking. She's not a playful dog but a great companion dog for an older, confident or very calm dog. She needs a dog in the home to show her the ropes but one that will not push her around. She doesn't care too much to be outside and needs to be coaxed to do so. She had a few accidents in the beginning but is doing great on it now. She is only food motivated if its human food, especially chunks of chicken. In fact despite what the fluff butt tells you she's quite picky about her food. Likes the wet flavorful stuff! Doesn't mind kenneling but definitely doesn't need to be, she aces the good dog test! She sleeps on a dog bed in our room, well truthfully her butt sleeps in the bed and the rest sprawls out across the floor, but hey whatever makes her happy! 

Molly will need to have a fenced in yard, and always a martingale collar since she's notorious for putting the brakes on and since her neck is the same size as her head a normal collar may slip off. Although she is working on getting her girly figure back.

I wish she could tell me her story, why the world is so scary. But until dogs can talk we'll just take every step with her, protect her and love her! My best guess is that she may had unfortunately had to live in a garage, she seems to be a lot more confident in the garage and is always eager to try and go there which could be an escape route if garage door is not completely shut.

Vet has prescribed Trazadone to help with her fears and she may not need it in the future once she settles in, but she may need it for grooming, etc.  I would recommend n o kids based on how nervous she gets, but maybe older teens would be fine. She also would love an older couple with a sweet confident companion dog in a quiet home.
