    What's that they say about a face only a mother could love? But she's soooo cute!! I think the underbite is a plus! Twinkle is a 2 yr old 7 lb little doll.

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet my sweet, loving Buddy. I have had Buddy since he was a puppy. As sad as this is, I need to re-home him. Buddy loves people, will be your couch potato; however, Buddy doesn't like other dogs, and I have a few more here at home. Buddy can become aggressive with other dogs. He would do well in a home with no other dogs and children over 12. I love this dog, just need to protect his and my other dogs well being. He has never been around cats, not certain how he would do. I need to find a loving home for him. He truly will melt your heart. Buddy has been well cared for. I am going to have his teeth cleaned in the next couple of weeks. ...

Pekingese    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Dougie is a very special dog with specific needs. He is cute as can be and has an amazing personality but needs a very understanding and patient forever home. Dougie was one of many dogs seized from a dog hoarding situation. He had never been properly socialized and was severely neglected. You wouldn't know it from his beautiful coat he has now but he came to his foster home, from Animal Control in September,%A0%A0almost completely bald from mange. He also suffered from parasites and a pretty bad hernia. Dougie has proximity sensitivity towards humans and will growl and snap from time to time, but is in love with and protects his doggie ... (Read More)foster brother. They sleep together, eat together and share toys! Dougie loves to play with plush squeaky toys, something that he is just starting to do recently. He is a crack up and is able to be pet for short periods of time, even sitting on his foster moms feet in her office at home. He is able to be leashed and walks are his all time favorite thing. He is currently in training and doing great! We hope with the right home and love and care and patience Dougie can finally have the peace he deserves. If you think Dougie would be a good fit for you or your dog please email us at He would do best in a home without children of any age. (Less)

lnteresting Pekingese Trivia Low-Cost Illinois Spay & Neuter Clinics
    The Pekingese was once believed to be able to ward off evil spirits. Historically, the theft of a Pekingese in China was punished by death. All modern Pekingese are descended from five dogs rescued for Queen Victoria during the Second Opium War. When British troops reached the residence of the Chinese Emperor, the guards killed all but these five dogs to prevent them falling into the hands of the enemy. Pekingese were believed to protect the soul of their master in the afterlife.
