When the volunteers first met the dog, they found an energetic, lovable, and friendly pregnant pit bull full of life despite her unhappy circumstances. It didn't take long for the staff to come up with the ideal name for her-Pickles-which perfectly fit her delightful personality. Despite being hugely pregnant, Pickles was so excited to be safe and cared for that she couldn't stop smothering the volunteers with affection. Better yet, she was a natural in front of the camera!
Because of her sweet nature, everyone fell in love with Mama Pickles when she arrived. The volunteers immediately knew they found the perfect model for a maternity photoshoot. However, most people are unaware that over half the time, shelters don't realize female dogs are pregnant until the last minute. The volunteers were happy that they found Pickles before she had her puppies.
