Hello!  My name is Pickles and I am a Leopard Catahoula mix.  We are known for their loving temperament.  I was abandoned with my littermates on the side of a highway!  Dr. Strayer was asked to take me in on Easter day 2018.  I know she intended to take me in, care for me and find a suitable home. Well…….flash forward to October, 2018 and I am now in Therapy Dog training!  As Christina was caring for me, she noticed how I enjoyed her other dogs, loved all people and am naturally obedient.  It did not take long for her to realize I would make a perfect therapy dog!  My plan worked!

My favorite things to do are to lie in your lap, play with stuffed toys, eat treats and take walks! I would rather play with people than other dogs!  I enjoy seeing clients here at the office or walking with them at the farm with Christina.  Cookie is my brother now (Christina’s other therapy dog pictured) and we take turns coming to work with her as her canine co-therapists!
