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.

Winston was a 2 1/2 year old Peke that I rescued from a shelter near me. He was only 11 pounds, and thin, but how could I resist that face?
Winston had a bit of attitude, but most Pekes do-- look at that tongue! He was sitting beside me on the bench as I evaluated him.
He gave a big smile and we decided he was coming home with me. After having him for awhile, he was adopted to a wonderful family. They adored their boy!!
Winston began to develop some health problems and his owners did all they could to help him, but they weren't able to overcome what he was going through. To watch your own Peke suffering is the hardest thing and letting them go is better for the dog, but horrible for the owners. We are so sorry for your loss. Rest in peace, sweet boy.
