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.

ALVIN AKA MR. WIGGLES
Alvin was rescued out of a NYC shelter, but he had temperament issues and that was a problem.
He was in a home, but it was not a good fit and they were hoping for a more experienced owner to help Alvin. One of my friends in rescue (who has adopted several dogs from us) was up to the challenge.
Genghis took Alvin on as his project-- and so did the whole family.
There were some rough days-- this boy had been through something, who knows what-- and he had some trust issues.
He greeted his new dad. :-) He liked him right away.
He went on walks.
He was given time to decompress and they did not react when he acted out. They were not giving up on this boy-- they wished he could tell them what had happened to him.
Genghis said, "Give him a chance!"
And they did.
Genghis became his good friend, he taught him he was safe and how to be a dog.
Alvin has really changed thanks to this wonderful family. His new name is Mr. Wiggles!! He is always wiggling in happiness now. AND he got to meet Santa!! I think he is going to have a wonderful Christmas!
His brother, Genghis, is helping decorate to make sure this is the best Christmas Mr. Wiggles has ever had.
