Romanna was surrendered to the BC SPCA Nanaimo & District Branch in August, 2016. Her previous guardian was having difficulty finding a home and sadly could no longer take care of Romanna.
It didn’t take long for Romanna’s lovely personality to emerge as she settled into the branch. Romanna is a two-year-old gentle giant with lots of love and hair which stays true to her mixed breed heritage of Saint Bernard and Bernese mountain dog.
Romanna didn’t have to wait long before she was discovered at the branch by her new guardian and was soon adopted. Romanna is now known as Molly and has had a couple of months to adjust to her new surroundings. Her guardian Suzie has sent us this update to let us know how everyone is getting along together:
We adopted Molly in August, 2016 from the BC SPCA Nanaimo & District Branch. She was originally known as Romanna, but her new name, Molly, suits her much better.
In just two weeks, Molly learned her new name, had two commands, and now is working on lots more. She loves going for walks on the beach with her friends and has a regular crowd of dogs to hang out with. She has the funniest facial expressions and we were surprised to hear her snore!
It took Molly about a week to become comfortable with the traffic noise of the city, but she now waits patiently at the crosswalk. She still gets distracted easily, so we do several short training sessions with her every day.
Molly has come to work with me a couple of times and some of my new students got the chance to meet her. Though she's still a bit shy, she is friendly and calm in the office. Each of my students said how hard it was for them to move away from their dog at home, and how glad they were that they could come hang out with Molly for a bit.
My daughter and I are so happy to have her join our family. Many thanks to the BC SPCA staff for their help and excellent advice.
It’s so great to hear that Molly is doing so well and adjusting to her new city life. Thank you for making adoption your first choice and giving Molly a second chance to become a great family dog.
