Rescuing Pekingese in Need for Over 20 Years

Pekes for Adoption

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.


We require a vet check and a home visit. Previous experience with Pekes is always a plus!   Oreo’s adoption fee is $250.00.


Diamond 


Diamond is a 13 year old, 12 pound golden Pekingese. She came into rescue after the death of her owner. Diamond has a coat with golden and white highlights throughout. She is a stunning girl! Diamond is very low key and laid back. She is very sweet, affectionate, and independent.

Due to having damaged eyes and no vision, she had a double enucleation in early July, 2022. She has healed wonderfully. Diamond has excellent hearing! She loves her baths and her skin has improved since bathing with a medicated shampoo.


While having to be carried in and out of the house to the yard, she walks around the yard and enjoys her time outside. She loves to play with her humans and her toy. As with most blind dogs, Diamond “sees” with her heart! She has learned to accept love and care. She would do best in a home with adults, including older children.


If you are interested in more information or in adopting Diamond, 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!   Diamond’s adoption fee is $200.00.

                          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.
