Being pregnant and being left out in the streets is something not every dog is cut out for. Thankfully, this optimistic pit bull is one brave fighter.
Mama Pickles is only two years old when her owners abandoned her in the streets. She was clearly pregnant with a big litter at that time and needed some help. Animal control officers found her and immediately contacted her family.
However, her owners didn’t take her back and chose to leave her at the local shelter. The shelter didn’t have enough facilities to care for a pregnant pit bull, so she had to be transferred to another one. That was when she got to Pits & Giggles Rescue.
The organization provides pregnant pooches with maternity and postnatal care. And Mama Pickles instantly knew she was home. She was so excited to show her appreciation for her new human and rescue friends that even her big belly couldn’t stop her from showering them with kisses and cuddles.
Lauren Casteen Sykes was one of the volunteers at the shelter who welcomed Mama Pickles. She shared that the pooch was an instant star at the shelter with her bubbly and goofy personality. That was when she thought that the pit bull would make the perfect model for a maternity shoot.
Lauren had been volunteering to take photos of the rescues to help them get adopted. And with Mama Pickles’ humor and star qualities, she was positive that she would look good in photos.
When the day of the shoot came, the shelter was full of laughs and giggles. Mama Pickles was just too eager to participate in the photoshoot that she couldn’t hold her excitement. Lauren shared that it wasn’t easy to make her hold still, but the whole shoot was nothing short of fun.
Mama Pickles gave birth afterward, and the staff arranged a newborn photoshoot for her as well. It will take some time before she and her pups will be ready for adoption, but until then, she will surely be spoiled rotten by the shelter staff. Just look at how stunning this mama pittie is here.
I did a maternity photoshoot for Pits & Giggles Rescue & needless to say mama did not disappoint. She looks like she’s been preparing for this photoshoot her whole life 🐾🤣❤️
