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 received a message that this little man needed help.
He was in a very small rural shelter. The shelter only has 8 kennel areas. They do what they can, but it’s super small.
There was a volunteer at the shelter and she wanted to help him. So, she contacted rescues and we were the closest. Of course, we said YES!
Susan, my friend, met to get him. Volunteers and friends of rescue are so important. We have a rescue board, but we are in different places in Virginia. Helpers are critical.
Susan helped w transport and got him to one of our vets. We have a list of things we do for every incoming foster dog. We do a full bloodwork w a urinalysis, a tick panel, eyes and ears evaluated, an general overall checks. Oliver had his skin checked. He received a cytopoint shot which helps a lot with skin issues.
Sir Oliver will have all the care we can give him and be in a foster home in Virginia. He is 13 pounds and very sweet. There will be more updates on these sweet man
