Molly, 4, is a 52-pound spayed female border collie mix. She is a loyal dog who loves to snuggle with her people but is also playful and loves going on adventures. She is highly intelligent and a joy to work with. Molly is really on guard and nervous about strangers as well as other dogs, so needs an owner who will remain calm when she gets worked up and who will work with her on this issue. Molly has been taught basic behaviors and will sit, roll over and come for a treat or praise. She is easy to walk on a leash and will go into a crate for a treat or stuffed Kong. Molly is OK with older kids, but they need to be involved in teaching her more confidence and skills. She will need a home without cats.
Molly (#17214789) is in kennel 301 at the Idaho Humane Society, 4775 Dorman St. in Boise. The shelter is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. seven days a week. You can learn more at idahohumanesociety.org.
