Molly – Now Adopted!

Molly is home!

We are absolutely delighted to be able to announce that the beautiful Molly is now home and has a brand-new name to go with her new life.

Introducing Winnie

Winnie was collected yesterday by Michelle, Steven and her new fur brother Sidney.

Winnie has wasted no time in getting to know her new family. She had a bit of an unsettled night but that’s to be expected with all the new sounds to get used to but she soon settled down with a bit of a cuddle.

We would like to say a big thank you to Gemma for being an amazing foster mum to Molly (Winnie), you have done a fabulous job preparing her for her forever home and we are truly grateful to you.

So, without further ado please join us in congratulating Michelle, Steven and the gorgeous Sidney on their new girl Winnie. We hope you have many happy years together.

To Winnie, enjoy your happy ever after sweetheart. We can’t wait to see all the adventures of your new life with your new forever family!

Previous adoption statement.

Dogs name:



5 years old.

Current location:

Hatherleigh, Devon.



Yes, dog savvy children.




Male Bulldogs.



Molly is a sweetheart; she is happiest with her humans at her side.

Molly is the epitome of a companion dog; she thrives in the company of her humans.


Molly is a sweet gentle soul, who relies on her humans for her wellbeing. She loves nothing more than making you happy. She is attentive and affectionate to anyone who shows her love.

She isn’t an overly playful dog much prefers to sit and watch the world go by.

She does enjoy the company of calm children; she would like to snuggle up and watch a movie.


Molly is best suited for a calm environment, with her family keeping her involved in all aspects of family life.

A garden is a must for this laid-back lady for days when she just doesn’t fancy a walk.

Molly can be a little clumsy so any young children in the home must be supervised, as she has the potential to knock smaller children over.

Children must understand that bulldogs need time to settle in and have space to rest peacefully and uninterrupted.


Molly likes walks in the countryside where she can take in the world at a leisurely pace.

Molly associates’ cars with a walk as she was used to being driven to the park her family walked her at.

In typical bulldog fashion Molly likes to decide if a walk is necessary some days.

Molly will sit back and allow other dogs to approach her, and she is always happy to say hello.

Toilet trained:

Molly does have accidents in her bed initially, and on occasion when she is left for long periods of time.

Bed wetting is anxiety related as she grows in confidence with her new home and family this will calm.

Can be left:

Molly can be left for up to 4hours. She will take herself off to sleep.


Molly loves a car ride, because of this we will accept applications of up to 4hours away from her current location.

Things to be aware of:

Molly has had separation anxiety in the past, this is easily managed with the right support.

Molly lived very well with a laid-back male bulldog in foster, she unfortunately didn’t get on with a male of another breed in her adopted home.

Additional information:

When Molly goes home, she may have initial anxiety in which we can support you, as soon as Molly knows and feels safe her anxiety will dissipate.

Molly is an incredibly sweet natured lady who loves her humans deeply. Anyone would be truly blessed to call Molly family!


A little of Molly’s story below,

Please welcome our little Molly back to her GBSR family.
Very sadly Molly’s relationship with the other dogs in the home has broken down
Molly’s family have tried their hardest to put things right, but sadly Molly was starting to display anxiety and could not make peace with one if the other dogs so with a broken heart, Molly’s mum made the decision to hand Molly back.
After an emotional farewell, Molly is now in foster with the lovely Gemma in the South West.
Thank you for loving Molly, Niki, we know handing her back hasn’t been an easy decision but she will be fine and you can follow her journey on this Page.
Welcome back to your Springboard family Molly

Molly came to GBSR a 5-year-old, unspayed, ex-breeding bitch.

We were alerted to her plight by a lady called Nicola. Nicola had attended a bulldog walk over the weekend where she met Molly’s owner for the first time. He spoke to Nicola about how he was going to put Molly to sleep because she was bedding wetting. However, the shocking part was he had only had her 2 weeks.

Listening to the story about her life this poor girl has been passed around a few times. Starting life as a breeding bitch then being cast aside when she was no longer needed.

She was then given to this person who thought putting her to sleep was the best thing to do, instead of investigating why she was wetting in her bed .

We would like to say a massive thank you to Nicola for liaising with Molly’s owner and us to ensure a quick and safe collection of Molly as her owner was becoming angsty.

This was an emergency, and we couldn’t have done it without our amazing volunteers in the Southwest. Thank you to everyone who helped us save Molly’s life today.

Molly is now in foster with Victoria who very kindly offered to care for Molly. Thank you, Victoria, we are truly grateful for your help with Molly.

Previous adoption statement below,

Molly or as she is affectionately known in her foster home as Molly Moo is an incredibly affectionate little girl. She will happily spend her days snoozing at your feet, or on your lap if she can get her way!

She prefers a gentle and calm home.

Molly does have separation anxiety, it is manageable with the right support, she is the epitome of companion breed.

Molly isn’t playful with toys, and she will shy away from rough play with humans but loves a game of bitey face with the resident male.

Molly gets on well with the foster family’s resident male, she is submissive and will happily snuggle in his bed with him.

The moment she sees her harness she is excited as she absolutely loves to go out for a walk, and her confidence with dogs outside the home is growing and playful.

Molly doesn’t like loud noises or the hoover.

Molly has separation anxiety we can guide you in how to manage and support her. Any children in the home must be dog savvy and young children must be supervised.  

The ideal home:

She could live with a family with or without children.

She would benefit greatly from a calm dog to help ease her anxieties and keep her company.

Molly needs a home where she isn’t left for long periods of time. She bonds well with her humans and needs their companionship. She will happily follow her human to the ends of the earth.

Molly found a home!

It brings us an incredible amount of happiness to announce Molly finally has the furever home she has always deserved.

Beautiful Molly hasn’t had the best life being passed around from pillar to post. She was used for breeding and then cast aside when she was no longer needed.

To see the sadness in a dog like Molly is soul destroying. She has an incredible heart and a desperate need to love her humans. After all she has been through, it is absolute proof of the breeds nature, that she still has the heart and soul of one of the world’s best companion breeds.

Molly was rescued by one of our earth angels, a very kind and wonderful lady called Nicola, who rescued Molly from her owner who wanted her pts for bed wetting.

Nicola very kindly collected Molly and travelled her to our foster. Molly came into foster with Victoria Louise and her boy Buster and settled in beautifully.

Molly was collected by her new mum Nikki and her very excited daughter Georgie. Molly has had a very settled and dry first night and has been out for a walk and is slowly getting to know her new fur siblings, Buster the Dachshund and Ock the Viszler a seven-year-old boy.

No more being passed around now gorgeous girl, you are forever home, safe and very much loved.

Thank you, Victoria Louise, for opening your heart and home to Molly and preparing her for her furever home. You have given Molly the best gift ever. Her chance of being forever cherished and we will always be very grateful to you.

So please join us in congratulating Nikki and her family on their gorgeous new girl Molly.

We wish you a lifetime of happiness together and look forward to sharing the next chapter of your life with you.

Be happy Molly and enjoy your fabulous new life with your family and fur siblings.
