    Poor dear thing, she was so skinny. I cant imagine why she was that skinny in the pound!? Unless she was surrenders/picked up and then immediately put up for adoption!
    Hi There

    From what I know Molly was picked up wandering the streets and never claimed so she was sent to the RSPCA and got desexed and vaccinated then put up for adoption She is an extremely timid dog and you can tell that she's just been locked up in somebody's backyard for her whole life and has never got to 'experience' things, so being in the shelter environment was way too stressful for her and she just couldn't put on any weight there so I'm just glad that she is putting on weight now! We took her to the vet the day after we bought her home and can you believe the vet actually said that she was the 'perfect' weight! She was purely just skin and bones! Needless to say I am never taking either dog back to that vet again!

    Welcome,

    I agree your dogs are gorgeous! My girl ironically also named Molly is also a pound rescue who was quite thin too. She also had a fear of stairs also! but she is totally over it now. I now have the problem that she is now overweight lol.

    I agree with the lab mix for Molly & i wouldn't have a clue on Meika! but doesn't matter they look like awesome & adorable dogs.

    Meika - definitely cattle dog (or smithfield cattle dog) x or maybe koolie x - some of them have spots like that. And so do some English pointers and german short haired pointers.

    Beagle x will generaly get a bit of tan, and eye liner around their eyes - and a bit of a black saddle on their back. I've seen a red cattle dog x beagle - and she had eye liner and a bit of a black saddle but otherwise looked like a red heeler.

    So what would give the cattle dog that smaller floppy eared look? Maybe Mini Foxy or Cavalier or Dachshund or

    Meika is very like Frosty (my dog) only smaller. Frosty's ears sit up more but not completely like a proper cattle dog. I think she has Border Collie and Kelpie in her. And some people think she has staffy (so no visits to Victoria for her).

    The black dog
    could be lab x kelpie. Does she bum wiggle much and bow and grovel when she greets you?

    I just had to attach a photo of how they were sleeping last night and also one of Molly the day we got her so you can see how much weight she's gained over the last week!

    Lovely dogs. Always left wishing there was a way to nominate people for the pound, when I think about dogs - animals, mistreated and abandoned.

    I was thinking the other day that she looks like a mini pointer as she does 'point' but I think thats also typical of the cattle dogs? Frosty is very cute and I love her name!

    Molly does bum wiggle a lot when she sees you but doesn't grovel, however she is still getting to know us and learn that we're nice people so she might start doing that eventually. She is fine built like a kelpie but how tall are they generally? Molly is much taller and 'leggier' than the average lab and I always thought kelpies were medium sized dogs

    second one is lab x kelpie, we had a couple at the previous dog school I taught at. Exactly the same and one was skinny as a rake no matter what they fed him.

    How tall were they? As Molly is taller than both a lab and a kelpie. She definitely has the appetite of a labrador!

    Some kelpies are quite tall. Taller than your average labrador. As tall as a boxer or boy Dalmation. Eg some of them end up in the 600mm jumping height category ie taller than 54.5cm at the wither.
