Rescue Dog at Home with New Menagerie of Animal Siblings

When Marie Mattart saw a little dog named Molly on a website for the rescue organization Gaia Dogs, it was love at first sight. Molly’s life with her siblings started out a big rough. The two puppies were actually discovered in Greece, living near a river there. After locals noticed the pair of dogs, they contacted a rescue organization who took the dogs off the streets. Then, Molly and her sibling were transferred to Gaia Dogs, which is a Dutch rescue group. That’s where Molly was adopted by Marie at just four months of age. As soon as she joined Marie in her home, Molly made it clear that she did not want to be alone, which works out perfectly in the new environment.

You see, Marie has quite the group of animals in her home. Molly was particularly attached to Marie’s two large Saint Bernards, Basiel and Julie who are also rescue dogs. She was frightened of the large dogs at first, but she slowly warmed up to them and now the trio is inseparable. But that is not where Molly’s attachment ends. In fact, Molly has also found a strong friendship in Marie’s rescue goat named Hans who was also a rescue. She also loves all of Marie’s cats, including her oldest cat that is eighteen years old. Molly and the cat, named Mauwie, love to take naps together on the couch or in a bed. That is only the beginning, however: Molly also loves Marie’s donkey and pony, also rescues.

There is plenty of companionship for Molly the dog, who spends most of her days chasing and playing with all the animals that make up her new family. But, like most dogs, she loves a long night’s sleep at the end of a long day with her animal siblings.
