Dog Found With Jar Stuck On His Head Gets New Home With Foster Family

A dog found wandering in the streets of Fort Worth this month with a plastic jar stuck on his head is getting a second chance. 

The dog, known only as "Pickle," got his head stuck in a plastic jar and lived with it for approximately three days, according to Fort Worth Animal Care & Control.

Concerned residents found Pickle in their neighborhood and called animal control services.

Because of Pickle's situation, "he was extremely fearful," said Diane Covey with Fort Worth Animal Care & Control. 

Animal control officers were eventually able to catch Pickle and remove the jar from his head. 

Pickle has been recovering at the Fort Worth animal shelter ever since. On Friday, he was finally able to go home with his new foster family.

Saving Hope is a non-profit rescue group that's taking Pickle.

"Their plan is to rehabilitate and socialize him so that one day he can be adopted," said Covey.
