Poor Mama Pickles was so pregnant and in need of more specialized help than the shelter could provide, but luckily, she was soon pulled by Pits & Giggles Rescue, which specializes in caring for pregnant and nursing mama dogs and their puppies. The sweet pit bull was so excited to meet all of her new rescue friends, and couldn’t help but jump all over them for attention and kisses. Her huge belly made moving around a little difficult, but even that couldn’t stop her.
“She is a ‘pit bull in a china shop,’” Lauren Casteen Sykes, a volunteer with Pits & Giggles Rescue, told The Dodo. “Mama Pickles is all tail wags and smooshy kisses and must be underfoot and in your space at all times! She is definitely a ‘velcro pitty,’ and certainly has a little bit of mischief in her eyes.”
