Meet Pickles – a 5-year-old mixed breed dog who’s ready to embark on a new chapter of life. Although he may appear timid at first, he has a heart full of love and a resilient spirit just waiting to be discovered. He recently spent time with a volunteer in the play yard where he just found a safe spot and laid down, welcoming the volunteer to pet him and calm him.
Being a shy dog, he can easily be overwhelmed by new experiences and unfamiliar surroundings, however he is extremely gentle and affectionate. He craves a home which can be calm and understanding to his likely longer-than-normal acclimation period. Positive reinforcement and gradual exposure to new experiences will set him up for success!
Pickles has heartworms but it’s treatable and not contagious.

Pickles is up to date on vaccinations, flea/tick, and heartworm prevention, is microchipped, and will be neutered prior to going home. If you have dogs or cats, we recommend slow introductions over time. If you have children in your home, we recommend supervision between animals and children at all times.
