Mrs. Pickles is a sweet and loving lady who would love nothing more than to snuggle up next to you on the couch and give you kisses. She's a loyal companion who wants to stay by your side.

This mature lady has plenty of spunk, and youthful energy to play with her squeaky toys and chomp on bones. A good bone or toy keeps her calm and busy. She also loves to go on short strolls and sniff all those interesting things outside.

Mrs. Pickles is smart and keen to learn, and seems to pick up training quickly! She knows how to "sit" and "shake," and is a pretty good listener. She may be a big gal, but she walks well on the leash, doesn't get easily distracted, and will stay by your side. She's very treat-motivated, but needs few treats to make sure she remains at a healthy weight. She's also a house-trained girl who does really well in her crate when she's home alone.

Mrs. Pickles would do well in a low traffic home with adults where she's the only dog. She is looking for a cozy place to call home and a forever companion to share snuggles with. Come meet her!

What That Animal Rescue Show Means to APA!
