Mark says: I'm a 23-year-old student who recently moved back home with my mom. At the time, she was wanting to get a dog for companion because it's kind of lonely with just her and me here, and so we decided to go to a shelter to see what they could offer. We found Molly, a two-and-a-half-year-old Jack Russell/beagle mix, and fell in love instantly. She came from an abusive home and was a bit shy at first, but she came around really well and we love her to pieces now. I don't know how either of us could live without her!
