It’s not just people who Molly loves to be around — she also connected with Basiel, Mattart’s dad’s 3-year-old Saint Bernard, whom he rescued from a shelter in France, as well as Julie, Mattart’s own 6-year-old Saint Bernard, despite the dogs being much bigger than her.
“When Molly met the dogs for the first time, she was scared as hell,” Mattart said. “She sought cover underneath the car. Step by step, we then introduced her — slowly, at her pace. We made sure she was comfortable.”
