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.

Butterscotch came into rescue in late June. He was timid in the shelter. Most Pekes don't do well in shelters-- it's a scary place for them! He was pretty sick when we got him, and in a lot of pain. He just did not feel well.
His foster parents, Ida and Jim, have brought him a long way!
He is doing so much better and he even flies over "valleys" in the yard. Look at him go!
Butterscotch joined Allie Marie and Taz. They would help him learn how to be a calm Peke. Or maybe they could teach him how to be suave and silly, too.
Jasper is Butterscotch's temporary brother-- until Butterscotch is adopted.
Faolan is there sometimes, too. He's one of the granddogs (so is Taz).
Allie Marie (above) is helping Butterscotch to become more secure. He loves to run in the yard. He enjoys sitting on the desk and watching the world go by. He eats well, loves his food. He will go outside but also will use piddle pads inside.
He's not sure about leashes though-- for some reason they scare him. What happened to you, little one? We don't know if he was isolated alone for long periods of time or abused, but he does have some anxiety, so he needs a patient owner. He loves belly rubs, kisses on the head, and gentle brushing. His tail is a little sensitive (sounds like my Max!). He is learning to walk on a leash-- having walking buddies helps a lot. He is learning about toys-- he is interested in them, but hasn't started to play yet.
Ida is helping him learn he is safe, secure and loved. Butterscotch is about 13-14 pounds and 4 years old we think. He gets eye drops once a day -- a pretty normal thing for Pekes.
