Molly is a 50lb Border Collie mix. She was shot as a puppy and left to die in woods. She was aggressive when I got her approximately 2. 5 years ago. She is a different dog with a lot of professional help (Behaviorist/Trainers/medications) and more love than I thought I had. She is protective of the condo if you are a stranger, but I have been provided with instructions from strainer that have made that less problematic. She has NEVER bit anyone or another dog. In fact, she just likes to sniff and keep to herself during walks. She is scared at any sound that resembles a gunshot (car backfire or fireworks), and can be a bit jittery - it is important to not overreact or baby her... building her confidence is the most important thing (besides taking care of bathroom business) during her walks. We also have a fenced in yard to play in the back of the condo. Molly does NOT do elevators. We live on the third floor.
I am a civil rights attorney. I have an intense pro bono (free service) two week project and will need help just to give her walks, love, and attention. I don't want to feel super guilty because she is used to spending all day with me. This is my first such project since moving to PA from DC, and I will need intermittent help in the future if things work out for you, me, and of course Molly. I will be home all two weeks. I live with my 85-year-old mother who will be here if I must leave for some unexpected reason. We will bring Molly out to the sitting area on the third floor so you won't even have to come into the condo if necessary. We can discuss whatever your comfort level.
She is a sweet girl, but she needs someone that knows not only how to give love - but also encouragement for all the little things that come up on the calm neighborhood stress in an extremely safe neighborhood with sidewalks.
