Rescuers Organize A Maternity Photoshoot For This Adorable Pit Bull To Help Her Get Adopted Faster

Published 5 years ago

Pit bulls (not Pitbulls) have quite a negative reputation in the canine world as being scary and aggressive. However, this couldn’t be farther from the truth. With proper training and care, they can be just as adorable as any other breed of dog – just take Mama Pickles for example. This adorable 2-year-old pit bull was found wandering the streets back in early September. The people who found her instantly noticed that the dog was pregnant and tried finding her owners. Eventually, they succeeded only to be told that the owners don’t want her anymore, so Pickles ended up in a shelter.

The pregnant pit bull was eventually picked up by the Pits & Giggles Rescue, a non-profit organization that specializes in caring for pregnant dogs and their puppies. Even though Pickles had a huge belly, she was excitedly jumping around and couldn’t wait to meet her rescue friends.

“Pits & Giggles Rescue has a mission like no other. They specialize in Maternity rescue and care,” said  Pits & Giggles volunteer Lauren Casteen Sykes in an interview with Bored Panda. “They save pregnant and nursing mama dogs from shelter and provide them with the care they need to bring their babies safely into the world. Prior to adoption, Mama and all puppies are fixed and are placed in the best homes according to their personality and needs!”

Lauren is not only a volunteer at Pits & Giggles but also the avid photographer behind Enchanted Hills Photography. She decided to organize a maternity photoshoot for Pickles to give her and her babies more exposure. “When Pits & Giggles reached out saying that they just brought in a Mama from the shelter that was the proudest, happy and caring little thing, we wanted to take photos to keep those precious moments,” said the photographer.

Pickles seemed very excited about the photoshoot and was happily posing for the camera. “She’s quite the model. Her legs are certainly too short for the runway, but she was really loving all the attention and affection,” said Lauren. “The most challenging part was getting Pickles to stop licking us! She wanted pets, pats, and belly rubs. She was just loving this new thing called “love”. She was so excited she could hardly sit still!”

After Pickles gave birth, Lauren organized another photoshoot where the pit bull was proudly posing with her freshly baked batch of adorable puppies. “This girly was clearly used repeatedly for breeding and we’re excited to make sure this is her very last litter,” explained Lauren.

Lauren has been volunteering for Pits & Giggles for about two years now and says that she has adopted a dog herself during that time. “Three years ago, my husband Brad and I adopted our first rescue dog. Her name was Remington Rose! We turned that sweet girl’s life around for the better and it really opened up our hearts to help other dogs too,” said the photographer.

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!
