Meet Mr Pickles. Young, about 9 months, neutered male, Boston Terrier mix. Pickles is very playful and loves ALL of his toys. He loves playing fetch and wrestling with them. He was found as a stray. He was so terrified he coward in the corner on a porch all day and wouldn't let anyone near him. He appeared to be very aggressive but in fact was just very fearful. After a week in the shelter no one came looking for him so I went back and got him out. He is still fearful of new people but if you let him warm up to you on his own time he comes around. Once he accepts you he is a true love bug. Pickles needs a special home where he feels safe and comfortable. Someone who can help him feel safe and adjust to new people. I suggest no children as they don't often have the patience to give a pet the time and space they need to adjust. I'm not talking a long period. Sometimes he only needs 20 mins or so. Other times a couple days. It's just that it's every new person he meets right now. This could change but there is no guarantee. Pickles will also be microchipped. His adoption fee is $250.
