Kingsbrook Animal Hospital veterinarian, Dr. Davis, and his family recently adopted an adorable puppy they named Molly! When he brought her to Kingsbrook to meet us, we couldn’t help but take the opportunity to ask him a few questions.
Melissa: Congratulations on your adoption of Molly!
MD: Thank you.. we really got lucky with her!
Melissa: What led you to the decision to adopt a dog?
MD: As with many things, it just seemed to happen. My wife’s cousin sent me a picture of a cute puppy she wanted to adopt and asked if I would be a good-owner reference to the rescue group for her. She then told me that there were more pups from that litter, and that was pretty much it for me. Of course, I’m pretty sure the whole thing was a conspiracy between my wife and her cousin…
Melissa: Haha! Did you do any research to help you decide what kind of dog would be a good fit for your family?
MD: We have small children and live near water, so we were thinking about a medium to large dog that liked to swim & would be more tolerant of children. The rescue group suspected that Molly was a labrador mix, but it turns out she is mostly golden retriever, despite her coloring. We expected her to be larger, too, but we are very happy that it seems she will only weigh about 30 lbs when she is full grown.
Melissa: What is Molly’s favorite thing to do? Or maybe your favorite thing to do with Molly? 🙂
MD: Molly has lots of things she loves to do. She loves the kids, especially when they drop food from the table, she also loves to swim and chase her ball.
Melissa: And her least favorite?
MD: Her least favorite thing is getting into the car, even when it’s to go somewhere fun! We are working on that & she already seems to be less reluctant to hop in with us.
Regardless of not yet loving car rides, all of our KAH family could agree that Molly is a very lucky girl. We are so happy for Dr. Davis and his family!
