Must Love Pekes is a blog for those who love Pekingese, their looks, their antics, their personalities. It is written by me, Linda, and I have been rescuing Pekingese for 14 years. Lots of them have gone through our home. We have loved them all.

This tiny 6.7 pound female came from a Maryland shelter. Jeanne decided to look on craigslist for that area to see if she could find a posting.
There was a posting for a missing Japanese Chin, but the picture included was definitely a Peke!
Jeanne emailed the person and we found out this was indeed her dog. She had been missing for 6 weeks and had been walked off leash by someone on a cell phone (and not paying attention).
Shelby (who we were calling Sophie) does need medical attention, which we began on Monday to help her eyes.
The owner said she will pay for her medical care and she can't wait to get her little girl back. We will send her home in much better shape than she was when we got her.
Sometimes rescue isn't finding an adopter-- it's finding an owner! I'm so glad Jeanne went that extra step to find her.
