“Woof. Woof. My name is Molly and I live in big ol’ Honoraville, Alabama with my parents, Randy and Jennifer McGough, my three human brothers; Blake, River, and Griffin, and one fur brother, Hank. My brothers and I are the best of friends. I’m a Shipoo and I’ll be celebrating my first birthday on Feb. 14. I hope mom makes me a cake from Milk Bone treats. I am not a picky eater. Heck, I will eat anything. But, Milk Bones are my fav! My favorite hobbies include getting my hair blown dry, prissing around, snuggling with my humans, and sleeping.”

According to Molly’s mom, the pup is too prissy to play fetch, but does love playing outside with her fur brother Hank.

When Molly needs to go potty or needs attention, she nudges her humans with her nose to get their attention. She can also sit on command.

Molly’s mom had a dog, whom she called her best friend, with the same name when she was a child and decided to name the new pup after her childhood pet. 

Molly’s mom said she is the sweetest and calmest puppy she’s ever met.
