Hi! My name is Angelica Pickles and I’m part of the cartoon themed transport that arrived to OPH on 5-29-20

I’m guessed to be a Border Collie mix (my foster uncle seems to think I’m mixed with German Shepherd, but I don’t know) and estimated to be about 6 months old. I currently weigh about 32 lbs.

I am super friendly with other people and dogs and just want to give love and cuddles all the time. I was the life of the party at transport and came off the van giving kisses and hugs and visiting with everyone. I stayed for over an hour and had a great time socializing! On my first day, I met up with two families with small children and I was so gentle and loving with them all. They couldn’t believe how well behaved I was! Don’t be fooled by my name— I am truly the sweetest girl and won’t want to leave your side. I’m happy to lay by you while you work on a puzzle or play with a toy nearby while you watch TV. I am just so grateful to be receiving love and affection. Have I mentioned that I’m absolutely adorable too? I mean, just look at those ears! How could anyone resist?

I am curious about everything since it’s all so new and exciting, but I respond really well whenever I hear “No!” Stairs are new for me and my foster mom has a lot in her townhome, but I’ve already mastered them. I’m learning how to walk on a leash without swerving and have already made so much progress. I haven’t had any accidents in the house yet either! I’m great riding in a car too. I’m pretty perfect, really.

I am getting more comfortable with my crate and can stay in it quietly for 9-10 hours at night! Airline crates are a no-go for me, so I need a wire crate. I just want to be able to see what’s going on around me!

I would be so happy in a home with a yard and kids or multiple family members to love on me. Are you my forever home? If so, apply today! I won’t be available long!

This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
