Peppy aka Bucky
I NEED HELP TRANSPORTING THIS PEKE, ZACK, OUT OF A SHELTER IN ANNAPOLIS, MD, TO RICHMOND. IF YOU CAN HELP, PLEASE EMAIL EITHER HAVENINHIM@AOL.COM OR POTOMACPEKES@GMAIL.COM. THANKS!!
Remember Scotty Butters? He's what some would refer to as an albino Peke-- we don't know if that's what he truly is (you have to have medical testing for that), but he's a sweet, wonderful dog! He loves belly rubs and will clasp your hand with his paws as if he is saying, "um, please rub my belly more..."
Butters lives in NY/NJ (he has two homes!) and his mom now has a foster dog (Japanese Chin) named Peppy. She calls him Bucky because he has a serious underbite. :-)
Peppy has a bad kennel cough, so he is on meds from the shelter. Anna said, "his appetite is good and he is drinking water and looks well -- trying to keep him apart from Butters, so he doesn't catch it. My mom is so funny and sweet -- she usually goes swimming a few times a week in the afternoons, but I just spoke with her and she said "I am staying home today, just in case Peppy needs me... you know, I never left you home alone while when you were sick!" Awww.... what a grandmom!!"
Peppy's owner died and he ended up in a shelter in Philadelphia. Look at his tongue! It's kind of a fluke of the camera, but it's hysterical. He is with East Coast Asian Dog Rescue. He is a sweet and kind boy, who loves people, other dogs -- even cats!
Butters doesn't mind-- he still gets a lot of love. He's perfectly willing to share his family. He was a foster dog once and know how important foster homes are. If you're interested in helping our group, just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
