About Me

Meet Pickles
Status: Fostered
Estimated Age: 7 Years

Estimated Weight:  26 Pounds

UPDATE – 31 MARCH 2021: Pickles has been through a rough couple of months after he ended up with a broken jaw! However, he has been doing great in a foster home while he heals. Pickles is a very sweet boy who will need to remain on soft food, but this doesn’t seem to bother him in the least. According to his foster mom, Pickles is definitely a lap dog and loves to snuggle with you in bed. He is good with the other dogs in the home, quiet, and housebroken using a doggie door. He has a friendly, sweet, and gentle demeanor and would enjoy a yard to explore. He gets spells of energy and likes to sniff, play and run around when outside.  Pickles is ready to find his forever family!

NEW – 28 DECEMBER 2020: Pickles is a 7-year-old beagle boy who is happy, friendly, and seems to do well with other dogs. He was a stray at the Culpeper Animal Shelter in Virginia, so his history is unknown. He will be available after he is seen by our vet.



Q:  Can you tell me more about a specific dog?  Is s/he good with kids / housetrained / good with cats/ etc?

A:  What we know is in the write up.  Our knowledge about any dog that is not in a foster homes is limited.  Once approved, our adoption coordinators will work with you to match you with the right dog.

Q:  Can I meet a specific dog?

A:  We’re sorry, but you must be an approved adopter to meet our dogs.  Pre-pandemic, dogs could be met at adoption days, but you still had to be approved to adopt from an adoption day.

Q:  How can I adopt a specific dog?

A:  You must submit an adoption application and be approved to adopt.  You can do that under Adopt – you can also learn about the adoption process there..  It will take about two weeks for an adoption coordinator to get in touch with you.  Please keep in mind that dogs that are available now may be adopted in the meantime.  But we are always getting new dogs.   You can see them on our website.

Q:  Can I add another dog to the list on my application?

A:  We don’t hold you to the dogs you listed on your application.  It gives us an idea of what you are looking for.  Plus it will let us know if someone is interested in one of our special needs / hard to place dogs.

Q:  I indicated that I was interested in a specific dog on my application, but I see that s/he has been adopted.  What happened?

A:  We do not hold dogs.  Applicants in the queue before you are being approved and may adopt the dog you are interested in before you are approved.  But we are always getting new dogs in and your adoption coordinator will help you find the perfect match.
