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.

HARRISON AND MR. ROONEY (ANDY)
Harrison came to us in January of 2017. He wasn't a young one and had been in a vet for four months after his owner died. He was turned over to a shelter when no one came for him or wanted to continue his care at the vet.
He was a "cranky old man" and he just needed time to get the kinks worked out-- over 4 months without a lot of moving around can cause a lot of stiff muscles.
We had an application for him within a month! I love those people who want the older ones, the timid ones-- the ones that others don't apply for.
Harrison is about 12 now, and you can see he's come a long way-- lounging in comfort, loved by his mom and dad.
He heard they volunteered to take in a foster-- Andy, now Mr. Rooney. He was adopted by them within two weeks. :-) I love that!
Mr. Rooney and Harrison are now brothers and love their wagon rides together.
Mr. Rooney/Andy doesn't want to be in charge. He was so timid after going through a hard year (his owners died and then the second owner died within a year). He has settled in and is going to stay right there. (I always wanted to just kiss his face! It's so cute!)
Harrison is okay with that. He's used to having a buddy now.
You can find them laying near each other...
Or just taking a long afternoon snooze! Thank you, Kim and Jamie, for adopting these two special boys.
