Potomac Valley Pekingese Club

Rescuing Pekingese in Need for Over 20 Years

Pekes for Adoption

                         Dallas                              and                       Lex


Dallas and Lex are two 8 year old brothers whose owner went into a nursing home.  They are both incredibly sweet. Dallas is playful and loves getting into the toy container. 

He’s such a nice boy. Lex is the more snuggly one, but both are very nice dogs and they love each other.  We want these lifelong brothers and friends to stay together.  Is it your home?


Dallas has the largest spot on his head. He is playful and loves toys VERY MUCH. Dallas can be territorial with his toys and doesn't always realize it! He just loves, loves, loves all the toys! Sometimes he'll run over top of another dog to get a toy! Dallas carries toys around the house and even outside! He likes to talk quite a bit and will let you know when people come home and will greet you at the door. Dallas is the alpha and more assertive, but he's very lovey.


Lex is a teddy bear. He loves snuggles and kisses, loves to play, but more of a snuggler. He plays with toys, but not as much as Dallas.


They both eat well and are fed Hills science diet small bites. They love marrow treats and anything from a Bark Box!  They love playing with each other and both enjoy being outside and  a sunny spot on the back porch. They are OK with Cats. Lex wants a kitten so much!  He tried to get as close as he can to ours and just stares at her until she's alert to it and leaves. 

They both love to talk to other dogs in the yard and chase at squirrels. They also LOVE to be brushed and allow their foster mom to trim their hair/mats as needed. 


They are bonded and need to stay together. They are rarely in separate rooms and seek each other out if separated. Both love a good snuggle session!  They're at a good age, as they're young enough to still want to play and old enough to enjoy a calm evening.


If you are interested in more information or in adopting Dallas and Lex, please fill out an application to adopt.  http://www.potomacpekes.org/onlineapplicationadopt.htm.  We accept applications from Virginia, Maryland, District of Columbia, and areas close by.


We require a vet check and a home visit. Previous experience with Pekes is always a plus!


Ray Ray


Ray Ray came into PVPC in October 2022. He was turned into a shelter near Roanoke, Virginia, from a breeder in that area. He had been a stud dog for years! Ray Ray suffered trauma and abuse prior to being rescued; As a result, he is slow to approach strangers. Both of Ray Ray’s foster moms have been working on his trust issues. He will need a patient adopter! 


Ray Ray is approximately 8-10 years old. He has many years left to be loved and cherished like he always deserved! Ray Ray has shown no signs of aggressive behavior toward his humans. You can pick him up if your movements are slow. Ray Ray loves lap time and will snooze for as long as you can sit with him! He is not leashed trained. His foster moms are working on that as well. Ray Ray will let you know when he needs to go outside but may be hesitant about doors. This will improve with time, patience, trust and love! Ray Ray will come back inside on his own. 


This precious boy is finally getting used to being loved after a life of no affection. Ray Ray is fully vetted, neutered and had a dental. He does need thyroid medicine because of low thyroid, but it’s easy to give. Ray Ray would do best in a slow pace and quiet adult home.


If you are interested in more information or in adopting Ray Ray, please fill out an application to adopt.  http://www.potomacpekes.org/onlineapplicationadopt.htm.  We accept applications from Virginia, Maryland, District of Columbia, and areas close by.

Francey

Francey was rescued from a shelter. Her owner said she didn’t have time for her! Francey is five years old with the energy of a five-month-old! She is animated and blessed with a ton of personality in a tiny 9.9 pound package! Francey has learned to relax in her foster home and loves to be with her foster mom! For whatever negativity she has lived through, she is slowly making progress and learning to trust again, especially with men. Francey has shown her loveable side too! She will be your shadow and follow you everywhere and literally be under your feet! She is assertive and not shy or reserved. Francey needs to be the only dog or with another dog that is laid-back and mellow. If she was in an all-female household, that would be wonderful too!
Her foster mom says, “Francey is a little dynamo, aka energizer bunny, ricochet rabbit and speed racer!”

If you are interested in more information or in adopting Francey, please fill out an application to adopt.  http://www.potomacpekes.org/onlineapplicationadopt.htm.  We accept applications from Virginia, Maryland, District of Columbia, and areas close by.

Danny


Danny just came into rescue. He is about 9 years old.  He’s been bathed and had special food made. He loved it!  He needs to gain weight so his foster mom, Barbra, is pampering him. Danny is adjusting very well. He loves both dogs and cats. He spends time sitting in the yard with his foster family’s dogs. Danny  walks well on a leash and is house trained. He loves spending a lot of time with his foster parents and will sit right next to them. He will even nudge their hand for a pet. Due to Danny’s past, he may become scared easily and cry out. He also may get a bit nippy when he is startled, but otherwise, he is a very sweet boy and would settle nicely in a loving adult home.


If you are interested in more information or in adopting Danny, please fill out an application to adopt.  http://www.potomacpekes.org/onlineapplicationadopt.htm.  We accept applications from Virginia, Maryland, District of Columbia, and areas close by.

Stella


Stella came into PVPC in October, 2022. She was turned into a shelter near Roanoke, Virginia, from a breeder in that area. Sweet Stella is approximately 9-10 years old. She had huge bladder stones. They have been removed surgically and Stella has been spayed. Due to the size of the stones and the period of time Stella was left untreated, she experiences incontinence and has been difficult to potty train. However, Stella is cooperative about wearing a doggie diaper!

Stella’s eyes are shrunken and recessed. She has extremely limited vision, if any vision at all. This does not limit her activity. She is active in the house and yard. She is best described as “small but mighty.” She does not take a back seat to any of the larger dogs in the household.

She loves lap time and will snooze for as long as you have her on your lap. She also loves to nap and cuddle with her furry friends! It is amazing how dogs who have come from rough situations can be the sweetest dogs ever!


Stella has been fully vetted – vaccines, dental and spay – and is ready for her forever home! She is taking Proin to help with her incontinence. However, it is likely that her bladder will not return to its ‘pre-stones’ size. Thus, incontinence may remain (Diapers are easy to use, and she is so loving.). Other than the incontinence, she has no known medical issues. Due to her very limited vision, she would do best in an adult only home with a slower pace of life. She will require time to learn her way around the house. As she is not currently used to a leash, a fenced-in yard is required.


If you are interested in more information or in adopting Stella, please fill out an application to adopt.  http://www.potomacpekes.org/onlineapplicationadopt.htm.  We accept applications from Virginia, Maryland, District of Columbia, and areas close by.

Oreo


Oreo is a beautiful roan tripod Peke. He is approximately 8 years old and weighs 15 pounds. He is such a sweet boy with his foster family and the dogs and cats he shares his home with. Oreo often stares at the cats who live with him in his foster home and will occasionally chase them for fun! He loves to take naps on your lap and would love to sleep with his human(s).


Oreo is a foody and loves his meals and treats! When he came into rescue, he needed numerous eye drops. He was such a good boy and very deserving of a treat after his eye meds. His eyes have healed and they’re now bright and shiny, but he will require two prescription eye drops for the rest of his life. He is used to getting the drops and calmly sits there for them. Oreo also had a fungal infection on and around his pads. It was treated with an antifungal mousse and is cleared up now, but he may need to have his pads tended to again in the future.  He is also able to maneuver the (3) steps in his foster family’s home. He cannot maneuver more than that. This seems to be his only limitation! He’s quite fast for a tripod!


Oreo will do best in a home with older children. If you are interested in more information or in adopting Oreo, please fill out an application to adopt.  http://www.potomacpekes.org/onlineapplicationadopt.htm.  We accept applications from Virginia, Maryland, District of Columbia, and areas close by.

                          Information on Adoption

Adopting from the Potomac Valley Pekingese Club
Thank you for your interest in adopting a Pekingese in our rescue. Most of our Pekingese enter rescue from owner turn in and shelters. Most are adults with those one-year or younger being rare. Our "pekes" may not look like those you see in the show ring but those Pekingese characteristics we love are evident. We adopt in Virginia, Maryland, District of Columbia and surrounding areas. We do not transport, nor ship, dogs out of our area.

Our Adoption Process

Everyone involved with Potomac Valley Pekingese Club, Inc., PVPC, is a VOLUNTEER. We have no paid positions. We work as quickly as is feasible. We do require use of monthly heartworm preventative, current Vet visits, and we prefer a fenced yard and homes with children over the age of 8.


1. Complete an adoption application located at potomacpekes.org using a computer or tablet.

2. A Vet check will be completed by a member of the Rescue Committee.

3. Following a good Vet check you will be contacted regarding available pekes that may be wonderful for your home. A home visit will then be arranged between you and a volunteer.

4. You may request a specific peke; however, we have a list of approved applicants. We try to match the best peke with an applicant therefore, it is not a first come, first serve process. Our hope is that such matching results in the happiest life for you and the peke. Know that in the process of fostering we have fallen in love with "your" peke, too.


Before you meet your peke we have fully vetted them. Examples are physical exams, blood work to include heart worm test, vaccinations, microchip, dentals (if needed), vision, hearing, mobility, skin, etc.. Referral to specialists may be made. All are spayed/neutered if medically cleared to handle anesthesia. The adopter is provided all the information we have.


When a peke is being transferred to your care, you need to complete an Adoption Contract and pay the necessary adoption fee.
