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.

JUNIOR-- SWEET BOY
Junior came into rescue last September from a Virginia shelter. He was turned in by his owner because they didn't want to deal with his eye issues. He was adopted and then returned. He needed help. Dale and Ida were up for the rescue.
There was a family at the shelter who really wanted him-- their little girl wanted a Peke. But, it's good that he didn't go to a family with children. He needed an adult home. (Some Pekes are wonderful with kids who know how to treat them.)
Junior had some trouble at first because he can't see well. He had to get eye drops and if he was startled, he could be reactive.
He was a beautiful old boy and he just needed time to settle in.
And he did settle in!
He has a funny habit of finding the smallest dog bed and trying to fit in. He has two Peke sisters who are smaller than he is, and this is one of their beds-- well, it used to be! Did I mention that his foster mom decided to adopt him? He'd been through enough and at 14 years old, he just needed to stay. (She and I both love the older, needier ones.)
Sunny wondered WHY Junior was in her bed.
Dale and Sunny went off on a trip together-- girls' week-end!
But, Junior was just fine at home with his other sister and his dad. He's so glad he has a forever home!
