Pickle is a high stepping miniature pinscher!  Pickle is between 10 to 12 years old, and that is just a guess. 

Pickle is almost completely blind because of cataracts.  He is a candidate for surgery because he does have some retna reaction.  He can tell bright light from dark, but that is about it.  He gets along quite well outside in the wide open spaces and still has that min pin high stepping prance.  In the house, he is somewhat more challenged, but still very inquisitive and active.

Pickle is a snugglebug and would like nothing more than to sit in your lap and be petted.  In fact, if you stop petting him, he will reach out and paw you until you resume petting him.  He has learned though, that he can be just as comfortable in his bed---and he loves to burrow under his blankie.

He is not a barker, gets along well the resident dogs and bunks with a small female dog.  His sniffer is also impaired and he is not happy when he wanders up on a cat, but he just turns and goes the other way.

Pickle is a delight and when he comes into the house, he dances around on his hind legs for a little bit to let you know how happy he is.  His hearing is great so he comes when he hears his name and when you clap your hands.  He can walk in a straight shot to you.

You do have to keep an eye on him because although he is considered housebroken, he can get confused about where the outside door is.  Hopefully, that will improve as he learns his way around better.

Pickle's adoption fee is $150.00.  He is neutered, microchipped, crate trained, uptodate on rabies vax and his dhpp.  He also had an extensive dental and his bloodwork was good!

About Nuts'n Bolts Animal Advocates

About Our Rescue Group...

Nuts'n Bolts Animal Advocates is a 501c3, ID #45-2490926, dedicated to preventing at risk animals from entering the shelter system. We encourage pet retention through education and by providing low cost or free spay and neuter, simple pet enclosure repairs, and food in emergencies. Our shelters have 1000s of animals impounded every year. To reach no kill, we must keep animals OUT of shelters. The fewer animals in a shelter, the better chances they have of finding a home.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All of our animals are in foster care and seen by appointment only.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption fee include current vaccinations, microchip, flea control, and alteration. We do have an application process and an adoption contract. We request references for all applications. Depending on the breed of dog, we may require a home visit. Adopters either need to provide proof that they own their home or, if they are renters, proof from their landlord that they may have a pet. Adoption is for life and we try to make the best match possible, it is not first come, first served. Adoption fees for cats will vary depending on age, sex, etc. Cats follows the same adoption application and contract as dogs.
