Someone in Maddensville has found a rather large, male, stray dog that is a black and brown mixed breed. It looks a bit like the Grissinger’s “Molly” but is not nearly as heavy as Molly. And in defense of Molly’s size, we like to say it is her breed to be muscular, the Greater Swiss Mountain portion of her; and Molly is also better looking. If you are missing this dog, please stop by Maddensville, someone will point you in the right direction.
