Lonely Molly ready to take the lead in hunt for her Valentine!

Female dog seeks non-smoking male in good working order with GSOH* for STR. Must have own collar and lead. WLTM.

It may be Valentine’s Day and the time to look for love but this is no ordinary Lonely Hearts column.

In fact romance is far from being on the cards as the owner of 15-month-old cockapoo, Molly, is looking for a mate for her to breed with.

Carol Jones resorted to desperate measures to find Molly a partner by placing an advert in a shop window after her pet pooch was cruelly jilted by her prospective mate by a text message when his owners decided not to go ahead with the pairing.

Carol, who works in gift shop Glyph in Hamilton Road, is hoping to breed Molly and now hopes that a family dog in the area will fit the bill.

“She was text dumped so then we did the sign.”

Carol, 48, took the decision to breed Molly last year after a number of her customers told her they would like a similar type of dog.

She added: “So many people come into the shop and when they see her, they want a Molly. They always say that if I breed her I should let them know.

“They want to make sure they get a dog like Molly. The decision to breed her was made last year.”

If you think your dog could make an ideal match for Molly this Valentine’s Day, pop into Glyph and have a chat with Carol.
