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.

We were asked to help this ten year old sweet boy. We were first told he was 3-5 years old and I was so excited to get a young one. But, he is older, 10.
He was in a Virginia shelter and had been turned in by his family-- we don't know why.
Ida volunteered to help get him and transport him to his foster home This is his jail-break photo!
He was perfectly comfortable traveling. He just fell asleep.
He had a bath and was all clean and fluffy.
He is a very sweet, docile little man of about 13 pounds. He just wants love and someone to snuggle with. He does wear a belly band for now-- we don't know where he lived before. He is learning.
Ricky can hear, but not like a young dog. And he just has one eye and it has a cataract in it. SO....
We would like to raise about $2000 to be able to do cataract surgery on him. The chances of gaining his sight in his one eye is 90-95%. Those are pretty good odds, and one of the top ophthalmologists in the country is doing it. If you would like to help fund his surgery, please make a donation on our web site or by sending it to our P.O box. Our address is: PVPC P.O. Box 61005, Richmond, VA 23261.

We want to give Ricky the best chance at a good life. Thank you!
