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.

Zachariah came to us from Annapolis in 2010. His owners had moved and said they couldn't take him. So sad.
Zachariah already had a grade 2 heart murmur, but he was so sweet. His foster family couldn't let him go, and they adopted him.
His mom adored her little boy.
He was 12 years old, but his heart was worse and he was on medication for that, and for arthritis-- but he kept going as much as he could.
Dogs with heart issues can go into congestive heart failure very quickly and Zachariah died peacefully at his home-- I know he tried hard to stay with his family.
His mom said, "My sweet Zachariah earned his wings,
he's in heaven running around with Jazzy, Dolly, Dexter & April. I'll miss
my little smushie face-fluffy butt. I'm heartbroken but he passed away
peacefully at home. You've never known puppy love until you've been owned by a
Pekingese." Run free, sweet boy.
