About Picolo

I was afraid one summer that I was going to die – my body hurt so much from being repeatedly kicked and beaten. I was so grateful when a person in my neighbourhood called D.O.G. and they came to help.
I was taken to a clinic, where they said I had a bad skin condition. A D.O.G. volunteer took me home and lovingly treated and cared for me for several weeks. I am now fully recovered and enjoy playing with my doggy pals in the shelter; I have also learned to trust the good people who visit, but I would love to be in a proper home – I am very affectionate, playful and good with children.
