Just last month, Pickles, a 2-year-old pit bull was all by herself. She was very pregnant and it definitely looked like she needed help. Thankfully animal control officers found Pickles and got her off the streets.
They even inquired about her owners, who, unfortunately, refused to take her back in and opted to leave her at the shelter.
According to The Dodo, she was taken in by Pits & Giggles Rescue, an animal rescue center that looks after pregnant, nursing dogs and their puppies.
And while Pickles was at the center, little did she know that she would find new friends, in fact, a new lease of life again. Pickles absolutely enjoys her time there, jumping around in excitement and she was, indeed, a star!
She was having the time of her life, even though she was pregnant. And at that time, Lauren Casteen Sykes, a volunteer with Pits & Giggles Rescue, met Pickles for the first time.
“She is a ‘pit bull in a china shop,’” Lauren told The Dodo. “Mama Pickles is all tail wags and smooshy kisses and must be underfoot and in your space at all times! She is definitely a ‘velcro pitty,’ and certainly has a little bit of mischief in her eyes.”
And that's how this incredible photoshoot materialized with Sykes, who is the owner of Enchanted Hills Photography. She also volunteers her time at Pits & Giggles Rescue, taking pictures of those cute little furballs and help them get adopted.
Sykes knew that the moment she saw Pickles, there was a star who was ready for a maternity photoshoot. Not just here, everyone at the center knew that.
“She was so excited she could hardly sit still,” Sykes added. “She loves affection and treats and was happy to participate! The hardest part was getting her to stay because she loves people SO much!”
“It was hilarious,” Sykes said. “She is all belly and a bit clumsy, so getting her posed was not difficult, but getting her to sit still long enough to get a picture was no easy task! Her bows were crooked, falling off and tripping her up — we couldn’t help but laugh, she’s such a cartoon!”
Sykes finally managed to capture some extremely adorable shots of Pickles and the maternity photoshoot is undoubtedly the best thing you will see all day.
“She’s quite the model,” Sykes said. “Her legs are certainly too short for the runway, but she was really loving all the attention and affection.”
But here's the best part, a few days later, Mama Pickles gave birth to eight healthy puppies and they had a newborn photoshoot as well.
It will be a while for Pickles and her cute babies to be up for adoption. Until then they would be having a lot of fun with the other doggos at the center. “This girly was clearly used repeatedly for breeding and we're excited to make sure this is her very last litter,” Sykes said.
