Facts about Pickles

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever/Shar Pei Mix
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
This girl has been through a lot! She came to us with a terrible skin condition that we are in the process of treating. She also came to us severely underweight! We are helping her heal and become healthy again but would love to find her a foster to adopt home to do this in! Even once Pickles’ is completely healed she will need to be on a specific diet for life!

Pickles’ is a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day! This girl has spirit and it shows! Even though she is still in rough shape, she loves to play and is so happy to chase the ball around our yards. Pickles is good with other dogs but has some prey drive so no cats or furry friends will do for this gal. If you can see past her current exterior you will find the ultimate furry friend! Pickles so far has shown us she likes to play, then sleep, and then repeat, repeat! She is very content in her doggie bed and she is bit independent in her behavior. She will come for some loves and cuddles then is happy to be in her bed snoozing the day away.
If you are looking to adopt and truly want to help a dog in need look no further than Pickles!!

Pickles just returned from a week of foster care to see how she did and this was her foster moms comments:
'She is very smart. Learns new commands very quickly. Is great on leash has fabulous house manners. She is aloof and does not seek out attention or affection but does come to greet people nicely. She does have some prey drive and likes to chase small fuzzies but can be redirected very easily"

Our adoption fee is $308.00 (including tax) for all dogs/puppies. Our sweet senior dogs 7+ year olds) are $94.08 to adopt. ALL adoptions include the spay/neuter, first set of shots, microchip and a free vet check! Hours for adoption viewings are Tuesday through Sunday from 10 am until 6 pm. Please be advised that most of our dogs are strays, so we typically do not have background history on them.

About Dogwood Rescue Society

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a network of volunteers who are passionate about animal welfare and have been quietly rehoming dogs for over 40 years. Our mission is to rehome homeless, unwanted or abused animals after ensuring that they are neutered/spayed and evaluated. We specialize in sporting dog breeds such as Pointers, Retrievers, Vizslas, Weimaraners and Dobermans, but will find a loving home for any breed of dog in need, particularly seniors.
We rely on public donations to continue our work, with our largest expense being veterinary services. Each dog that arrives with us receives a physical exam and spaying or neutering, if required. Many of the dogs we rescue, come to us malnourished or unhealthy because they have been neglected. We help dogs who are abandoned, relinquished, or available due to:

- Cruelty;
- Age or health;
- Neglect;
- Hardship;
- Divorce;
- Moving (where pets are not permitted or cannot make the journey);
- Lifestyle changes (starting a family);
- Death (or illness) of the owner;
- Imminent euthanasia in over-crowded shelters;
- Unwanted pets (e.g. puppies from unplanned litters) released into rural areas.
If you would like to contribute to animal welfare in your community we are always interested in hearing from you! We appreciate any volunteer help for fostering, advertising, fund-raising, transport, etc. If you cannot help out in person, but would still like to contribute to the welfare of these animals that find themselves in dire need, we welcome your assistance through the donation of funds or by sponsoring a particular dog's medical needs.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not keep our rescued dogs in a shelter. Our dogs are placed in caring volunteer foster homes (with foster-to-adopt as an option).
