TO BE KILLED - 1/14/2019
Very handsome and friendly Pickles has been found all on his own. He is quite a big guy, in good shape and calm, polite and waggy around his doggy friends in playgroup. Please share sweet Pickles for a loving home!
A staff member writes:
Some people say Pickles are an acquired taste, but everyone will have a craving for this Pickle. He makes the best sidekick on walks, hikes or any outdoor adventure. He's a strong fella but loves to explore his surroundings. When you have a taste for some cuddles, he's happy to oblige, leaning in, squinting his eyes when you scratch the right spot. So come to MACC and be introduced to the perfect accompaniment to your life.

We have no history on Mr. Pickles so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. However, he is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct his energy and enthusiasm.
IN SHELTER OBSERVATIONS:
Though Pickles presents to be a challenge when returning him to his kennel, Pickles remains calm and social with handlers outside of his kennel. He will engage with his care takers, taking treats and soliciting attention.
