POOCHIE- BRISTOL 18
This is Poochie before we got him. Like the rest, he was not in good shape at all. He had the same problems as the rest (fleas, anemia, worms, not neutered.....), and he just needed help.
At the vet, he was given help, vetting, surgery, good food and lots of attention. But, he wanted out! I was there, but didn't take him home since he has a foster home ready for him. But, it didn't work out (medical reasons), and Poochie needed help.
So, I brought him to my house. I need to not foster right now-- I have a new grandson that I will be taking care of when my daughter goes back to work. My life is really busy right now-- but look at that face! Who could say no?!
He knows how to "sit pretty"-- those teeth and those precious eyes. He had eye-fold surgery to reduce the size of the eye folds, and he is doing great.
He loves to be where I am. He likes to be under things-- my chair, my desk... He'd follow me upsstairs, too, but he's not fully housetrained, so he usually has to stay downstairs (no carpets there!).
Here he is under the desk. I am sitting at this desk a lot doing blogs and rescue emails. Poochie just sits patiently-- and that is where he is right now.
You recognize this-- it's the Pekingese pathway. Yes, they all use it. Poochie is no exception.
He was hanging out at the back door with Max, my Peke (a former foster dog). Poochie has the brightest eyes and is so alert. He really wants to please.
Wake up Max! She's trying to take our picture. :-)
Now he's lounging in the office-- NEAR the desk. He's getting brave. :-)
Poochie is beginning to discover toys-- he had no idea what they were. He would pounce on them when he first tried to play with them. He was a total klutz! But, he was having fun!
If you think Poochie would fit in your family, just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org! He's looking for a home!
