Pickles turned 10 weeks old on Monday, May 17, and he is one of the happiest puppies we know. It isn't often a rescue knows the full story of their dogs, but in this case, Pickles was born in RAGOM's care. His mom is Saylor (21-049A) and his sister is Ellie Mae (21-073).
Pickles came up a little short in the tail department when his mom accidentally removed it during her cleanup of the umbilical cord. There is no need to worry, as he makes up for it by wagging his whole body, from the tip of his nose to the tip of his tail.
We could write all day about how cute he is, but his personality is what counts. Pickles is going to be looking for an active family. He enjoys getting out on his walks and playing. His sister plays a little rough with him, and his mom plays with his sister a little more than she does him, so he could really use a loving family that plays a little gentler and showers him with affection.
He enjoys playing in the water (he's a little uncertain of lakes, but he's young). He loves the sprinkler, the garden hose, and his water dish and bucket. He enjoys an easy game of tug-o-war and chewing on tennis balls. He likes his unstuffed squirrel, skunk squeakies, and small deer antler.
