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.

Albert came to us from a Maryland shelter. He was found in the road by someone and she contacted the shelter to come get him. He was very matted, and thought to be partially blind and deaf. It's amazing he was not hit.
Paige picked him up for us and she and Danni decided that he looked like.....
Albert Einstein! Can you see the resemblance?
His ears were very touchy. They hurt!
He has a big lump near his upper front leg.
But, look at that face! Could you resist helping him?
He was transported to Jeanne in Richmond and he had surgery to remove the lump, clean out the ear (which was really really bad) and a dental. He only lost 4 teeth-- not bad! He's on medications now for his ears and is healing. He sees better than we thought-- yahoo!! He weighs about 13 pounds.
He's ten or eleven, and will heal with his new foster mom in N. Va. He's done a lot of traveling. A new life sometimes requires that.
He's now with his foster mom and she adores him already. We'll keep you updated on his progress! He is one sweet dog.
