As for his name, after tallying up all of your votes, Canine Companions says Pickles won by an overwhelming majority over the three other Pittsburgh-themed names - Pierogi, Pirate and Pamela.

Pickles and his littermates were born to mama dog, Lina, in California. Soon, he will be heading to Canine Companions' Ohio facility and then join the Sabos for his early years of training.

Once in Pittsburgh, Pickles will appear on Pittsburgh Today Live weekly here on KDKA at 9 a.m. with the repeat on Pittsburgh's CW at 2 p.m.

The Sabos will provide us with training updates as we watch Pickles grow into a well-trained, loving companion, who is ready for advanced training with Canine Companions themselves.
