A new home may have been found for a beloved pet which is being rehomed after one of her owners had developed an allergy to her.
Mark Dixon and Tania Jackson are hopeful that they have found a home for Molly the bulldog after putting out an appeal in Tuesday’s Lynn News.
The Terrington St Clement couple have made the heart-breaking decision to part with 10-year-old Molly as their son Joshua maybe allergic to her hairs.
Mr Dixon has received six calls from people interested in taking on Molly and now has made a shortlist of three.
Mr Dixon said: “I think there will be a positive outcome to this.
“I have narrowed it down to three people and I’m going to visit them with Molly and see what happens.
“A friend also called me to say his mother had recently lost a dog and might be interested in her.
“I think we will be able to find a decent home for her.”
One-year-old Joshua began to suffer with a cough in March last year which prompted trips to the doctors and treatment with anti-biotics.
But when things did not improve Joshua went for further tests in Peterborough which revealed that Molly’s hairs were most likely causing the toddler to have an allergic reaction.
Mr Dixon took on Molly seven years ago after rescuing her from her previous home.
He said that she would not initially walk through an open door and would shake but soon flourished with the family.
Horticultural supplier Mr Dixon says Molly is also very popular with customers at his warehouse in West Lynn.
He said: “She is such a friendly dog.
“Everyone who meets her wants to take her home with them.”
Mr Dixon wants to find Molly a home where someone will be with her constantly as she suffers from separation anxiety.
