Arlington Pet of the Week: Molly

Meet Arlington’s newest Pet of the Week Molly, who was rescued as a small puppy and now enjoys nothing more than a game of fetch.

Here is what Molly’s owner has to say about their life together in Arlington:

This is Molly, also known as @adventurousmolly on Instagram! She is a Georgia native that was found in a ditch during a rain storm as a smol puppo, and her life was completely turned around that day thanks to some kind strangers! After several years, she decided to leave her small town behind and take on the big city.

It is widely believed that Molly is a person in a dog disguise. Molly is fluent in the English language and seems to know what you mean, no matter what you say. If you are sad or mad, she will come lay by you, reach her paw out and put it on your arm, and stare up at you with her ears back until you can’t help but forget what was wrong because she is so cute. 10/10 smart girl.

Her favorite game in the whole wide world is fetch. It is her mission, her civic duty, her responsibility, to go rescue that ball and bring it back to you. She can play for hours and never get tired of it. Her second favorite activity is snuggling with her peoples and getting heckin’ good pets. She loves other animals, including her kitty friends. She loves to come everywhere with you, which is why she is very glad that there are so many dog-friendly restaurants in Arlington.

Molly will be turning 9 in January, and we hope there will be 29 more years with her. She is an absolute angel and we love her very much.
