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 over 15 years. Lots of them have gone through our home. We have loved them all.

AND HIS NAME IS..... CHUMLEY!
We picked up the little male Peke from the shelter near me. He is SO sweet!
He was severely matted, and has a skin infection from the lack of care. He has to be uncomfortable, but grooming and meds will help.
I took my Kai Kai to the vet to meet this one. My Scooterbug was my "therapy dog, introduction dog" but now that he's gone, I wanted to see if Kai Kai would take Scooter's job-- he didn't. He just wanted to be close to me.
I received so many name suggestions-- and they were all great! But, his temporary foster mom said he wanted to be her chum, sit on her lap and wag his tail. So, she wanted to name him Chumley! I love it!
He's been completely shaved down. They were able to save some of his tail.
He came to see me after his grooming. He wagged his tail, came up for love. He needs nasal fold surgery and a minor dental. We think he's about 5-6 years old. He weighs 14 pounds and has the nicest personality.
He was neglected in his past, not physically cared for, but that's over!
Just look at this sweet face. He's irresistible! (My friend who was going to temporarily foster him said he couldn't stay, because if he stayed long, she wouldn't be able to let him go!) Welcome to rescue, Chumley!! Here is a video, before his haircut, showing what a happy dog he is: Click
