Mollie came to GSRRR in 2013 after being offered as free to good home on a buy and sell site. It was soon discovered that she was having issues with her back legs and was taken to Glenn Veterinary Clinic for Xray.

It was found that Mollie had an extremely severe case of Hip Dysplasia. This meant that she could not stay on site at the rescue, so was taken into foster by the Coulter family where she received daily physiotherapy and anti-inflammatory medication in order to strengthen her hips and maintain her mobility.

Mollie eventually found her forever home and now lives with three other Shepherds, two cross-breeds, two yorkies, a springer spaniel and a cat! She is continuing to do well and by all accounts, is a complete and utter pampered princess.
