My name is Pickles and let me tell you...I am not the standard brand of pickles 😊 I am a little spicy, with a healthy PUCKER and I can be both sliced and RELISHED at the same time!!
Gherkins, Dill, Sweet and Lemonade Pickles are all names that my foster mom says about me, sometimes when she is smiling and sometimes when she is NOT 😊
I am living the GOOD life though, not even if my foster mom is not happy with me.. you know WHY???
Because she CARED about me! I was literally hanging out at a 4 way stop on the way to her job, so she saw me day in and day out. She stopped and fed and watered me but knowing that every rescue is so so full, she begged for help on social media but wasn't having much luck....her heart couldn't take it anymore, I was SO SO SO SKINNY and sad looking and everyone was driving by me with not a second glance..... SO she picked me up... AND the rescue took me on because MY foster mom is AWESOME!!
I am eating so well and sleeping on the couch (when I nap... 😊 I love to EAT and I love to PLAY and I love to CHEW! But if you keep me supplied with good chewing antlers and other hard to chew toys I will stick with them... most of the time!
Did I tell you that I love FOOD?? I am super trainable because I am super food motivated. House training, crate training, etc...is going very very well.
I need a busy and happy family, I would love other dogs or even a kittie or two to be my best buddies. i am going to be about 50-60# full grown, my growth was definitely stunted because I was so starved as a pup.
I am ready for you and I hope you are ready for me!!

Something to Consider:

  • Puppies don't train themselves

    If you aren’t willing to train a puppy every single day, don’t get a puppy! It isn’t a one-shot deal. You have to be dedicated. And if you aren’t making progress – find someone who can help. Enroll in a puppy training class or hire a trainer. Most cities across the nation have some sort of availability for this kind of help and at different cost levels that would fit your budget.

     

    Puppies are going to poop a lot and pee even more; chew on everything; bite everyone; scratch people and furniture; steal things; destroy something at some point; pull on the leash; not move at all on the leash; bark; cry; beg for attention; and the list goes on. You’re going to have to walk them, bathe them, pick up everything below waist height, buy new shoes, and most importantly: TRAIN THE PUPPY NOT TO DO THESE THINGS! Ultimately, it is your responsibility to teach your puppy that this behavior is unacceptable.

  • Puppies turn into dogs...
