He is OK w/ other animals though and  sends the right signal. He does takes treats well beside other dogs. Loves running off leash with dogs. Very sweet disposition. Fine w/ toys. Good w/ other dogs. Dislikes water so likely wont be a swimmer. Good w/ cats, not quite sure what they are – no prey drive noted yet but he may chase to play not to harm A bit shy w/ men at first but comes around easily Good in the car Was sadly kept  crated all the time and never exercised but this is about to change.

Molly is fearful when not in the presence of someone she knows. She accepts being walked by strangers. She is quiet and only barks occasionally. Molly also walks well on a leash and only pulls occasionally. Once she trusts you – which takes a while – she is super friendly and gives kisses."  Molly is timid and quiet, polite with other dogs, a nibbler in presence of food and playful in presence of toys. She  knows commands: sit, paw, lie down, stay but is not good with cats.
