Nicholas Paul's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, not good with dogs, and good with cats.

Nicholas Paul's Story...
SPECIAL NEEDS: Nicky has one blind eye from an injury, and the lens on his good eye has diminished eyesight from a slight thickening over the lens, which will most likely worsen with age. Eventually, Nicky may be completely blind. Nicky is currently being treated with Heartguard for a mild infestation of heartworms.

Nick has had a very difficult start in life. This Pekingnese was rescued from a situation of severe neglect and abuse. He is being socialized now at the Catnip Cottage and is fabulous with other dogs and cats after he has been slowly and properly introduced to them and has had time to become accustomed to his place in the pack. He loves animals, but is distrustful of humans, particularly strangers. Nicky bonds especially well with one special person. We are working with his socialization and he has come amazingly far in a short time in the stable pack of his foster home. Among his firsts, at 7 years of age Nicky has gotten his first Christmas Present from Santa, a squeeky ball that he loves. After living his life at the end of a rope tied up outside, neglected and abused, now he loves being an indoor dog. Nick loves toys now, and soft beds. Nick has even gotten his first kiss from a human. Nick has good manners inside the home. His house training is coming along quite well also. We are continuing to work on his trust issues. Nick does show the typical fearlessness and courage of Pekingnese. Also typical of his breed, he has a strong desire to be Alpha and requires a home where the owners can clearly and unmistakably maintain Alpha position in a stable home pack. Nick is also heartworm positive. He is undergoing treatment for his heartworms now. When Nick's heartworm treatment is complete and we have brought him just a bit farther with his social skills, Nick will need an adult-only home experienced with the Pekingnese breed. Sorry, but we are not comfortable placing Nicky P. with children. Nick is better with women than with men. Nick is not completely house trained, but is trained to Puppy Pads.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Nicholas Paul, a Summerville Pekingese dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pekingese for sale in Summerville, or seeking a Pekingese dog from a breeder in Summerville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Summerville already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Summerville breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Pekingese breeders who help with Pekingese rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Summerville paves the way for another one to be saved.
