Molly’s on Rock N’ Ruff

Another huge thank you to Terrie Carr at 105.5 WDHA

Another huge thank you to Terrie Carr at 105.5 WDHA for inviting Molly and PAWS to appear on her awesome Rock N Ruff segment!

MOLLY- Adorable, sweet and petite 3-year old Molly had been tearfully surrendered to an inner city pound by a family due to landlord issues — one of the most common problems seen with surrenders. She had lived with children who loved her.

Molly looks like a cross between a very small Pittie and a Boston terrier. She has a unique look with her one blue eye and one brown eye. Only about 38 pounds, she is a very sweet girl — a lot of dog in her small body.
Molly loves her yard time at the kennel. We don’t know that she was socialized with other dogs prior to being rescued as she shows positive interest but she can be a ball of energy trying to engage with them.

This week is Molly’s turn for her video to air – check it out!


A huge thank you to Terrie Carr!

A huge thank you to Terrie Carr at 105.5 WDHA for inviting PAWS to appear on her awesome Rock N Ruff segment! We brought Scottie and Molly, two of our rescues, with us and they had a blast! Terrie, cameraman John and crew are all wonderful with the dogs, big advocates for rescuing animals (opt to adopt!), and made us all feel relaxed and welcome. Scottie will be featured on air and on line next week, beginning Monday, and Molly’s the week after. Please check out them out at

This week is Scottie’s turn for his video to air – check it out!
