Rescue Me ID: 16-03-28-00325Sunny (male)

Pekingese    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Sunny is a sassy and energetic, five-year-old, 15-pound, male purebred Pekingese looking for a loving guardian. This boy is quite the character! He is a happy guy with a proud fluffy wagging tail. His jaw had been broken in his past, sadly possibly due to abuse, so his tongue often hangs out on the side. But, that just adds to his considerable charm. Sunny is affectionate with his people but he does carry some baggage and likes to guard his food and toys which can cause him to grumble, growl or even snap. So, he's recommended for a dog-experienced adult-only home. Sunny gets along with most dogs - best with females - but barks at cats. ... (Read More)He enjoys his walks and going for rides in the car. Since Sunny was neutered later in life, he has not perfected his housebreaking yet, so he wears a belly band in the home when he is not crated. Sunny is healthy, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, heartworm and fecal tested, and micro-chipped. He even had a recent dental. If you would like to meet and possibly adopt Sunny, please contact Maria at He is being fostered in Lincolnwood, Illinois. His adoption fee of $250 benefits the rescued pets of Rescue Tails Animal Welfare. (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.
