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.

Look at this sweet boy-- he was turned into the shelter by his family. Why? Because he "was old and didn't do anything anymore?" That is so upsetting to us in rescue. We believe a dog should be taken care of and loved until it's time to let them go.
Rudy is so happy! He is laid back, joyful, no problem with other animals. He does have a bad spot on his side-- the shelter said it was a hot spot, but it looks more like a chemical burn of some kind. We'll have to wait and see if the hair grows back. He is on antibiotics, and he just wants a place to hang out, be loved and live his life.
He will have a dental and then will be ready for a forever home. We were told he was 15-- but we don't think he is. He's too alert -- but whatever his age, we're taking care of him. You may not know that many rescues will not take older ones. We will-- all of us just love them. He doesn't hear very well-- but his other senses are just fine!
