Stella's Story...
Adorable young peke

Fostered in Rockville, MD
Hi Guys! My name is Stella. I'm a super sweet, easy going, and dainty 1-year old Pekingese pup. I'm small for my breed and weigh only about 10lbs, but could stand to gain a little weight. My foster mom says that I'm one of the best pups she's ever met; she even takes me into work sometimes. I'm a big hit around her office, and I make sure to greet all her co-workers when I visit. I really lucked out getting to stay with her while I wait for my new family. I follow her around everywhere, and like being by her side - I love my people and am devoted to them. I’m going to make someone a wonderful companion.

I'm the real deal, 100% Peke, and a super easy pup to bring into your family. I'm already potty-trained and will let you know when I need to go out. I'm calm, but also playful. I'm always up for a game of fetch, walk great on a leash, and really like car rides too. I'm good with kids and other dogs, and would do well in a house or condo.  Mutts Matter thinks I'd be a great match for a single owner, a working couple, or a home with older kids (10+ years). I'm so cute that small children may want to pick me up and carry me around, and that makes me a little nervous.

Like most Pekes, I will need regular grooming to keep my coat looking pretty, and will need a few short walks a day to keep in good shape and to greet my public as I stroll through the neighborhood. I settle in quickly to new environments, and can't wait to find my new family to love. I'm the complete package and cute as can be…Do you have room in your home and heart for me?

My adoption fee includes my spay, routine vetting and microchip. By adopting me you are giving me a great home, and helping to save the life of another dog in need of rescue.

Thank you for choosing to rescue!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Rockville 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 Rockville 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 Rockville paves the way for another one to be saved.
