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.
Lewis was in a rural WV shelter and was terrified. He is a big boy, at 25 pounds (overweight) and was unhappy, filthy and matted in the shelter.
He is all vetted now, but he is still insecure with strangers. He can be snappy until he knows you and is comfortable. Patience, love and time will help with these. He won't be placed in a home with young children. Once he knows people, he is happy and affectionate. He loves to go on walks, and that will help him lose some of the pounds he is carrying. He does get along with other dogs, but isn't super playful. He can be left alone at home and will be happy when you return.
