Pekes for Adoption

                         Dallas                              and                       Lex

Adoption Pending

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!

                          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.
