My story
Whether riding in the car, exploring the great outdoors or just chilling at home, Mr. Pickles would be thrilled to be your sidekick! Mr. Pickles is a loving and lovable young fella who's a big fan of giving kisses and getting belly rubs, and he's proven to be a first-rate snuggler. He loves chicken nuggets (What dog doesn't, but he said he'd like us to mention that), and he absolutely LOVES swimming. He adores his people, but honestly, he might like water more. He'd fetch a stick thrown in the water all day if he could, and once he's taken a dip in the kiddie pool, it's hard to get him back on track with his training sessions, because the water is RIGHT OVER THERE! Mr. Pickles is a big fan of toys and will toss them right in your lap to let you know it's time to play. He also enjoys going to playgroup at the shelter, so he could go home with a well-matched doggie sibling. While he can be bouncy and exuberant, Mr. Pickles is polite when meeting new people and well-behaved in the home once he settles in on his sleepovers with volunteers. He loves exploring the yard and playing, but also likes to get his beauty sleep, snoring with his legs sticking straight up in the air! Although he makes for an amazing playmate and cuddle buddy, Mr. Pickles is also super smart. He practically learns a new trick every day, and he's thriving in APA!'s Canine Good Citizen (CGC) program where he works with a volunteer trainer several times a week toward the goal of passing the American Kennel Club's CGC test. To pass the CGC test, a dog must demonstrate obedience and general reliability in real world situations. Dogs in the CGC program learn to walk nicely on leash, sit calmly when approached by strangers or another dog, how to greet people appropriately, stay in a sit or down until told 'free,' and come when called. And as part of APA's CGC program you can work with APA to continue to build a training relationship with him after adoption and get officially CGC certified for free! Check out a video about CGC: Mr. Pickles is down for whatever you are, and he's going to make a wonderful companion to some lucky person. Come meet him!
