Meet Theodore! ! He's a 7 year old, neutered male pekingese who is petite at about 13lbs. He was an owner surrender from a slightly neglectful situation and came into rescue with very limited life experiences. He has blossomed in rescue, though! He came from a situation where he was indoors 24/7 and was fearful of the outdoors when he first got to his foster home, but he took right to it and LOVES his outside time so much now! He's done AMAZING with house training and really has benefited from the positive reinforcement of his person being there to tell him what a good boy he is pottying outside. He loves to please his person and seeks that praise after he does his business. A belly band is recommended as he is still capable of accidents but is working hard on this.
Due to 6 years of no new experiences,  he's cautious around new people. Understandably! As a result, homes with young children just aren't a good match for Theodore. To his credit, he has excellent dog body language and it's easy to tell if he wants attention from new people or would like to take more time before being petted. Although, once he loves you, he LOVES you. He really has bonded with his foster mom and dad and loves lap time, snuggles, playtime and being with his people. Sometimes too much, lol. As a result, he can have a bit of separation anxiety and really benefits from dog friends to keep him company and not having too much alone time away from his people. Someone who works a lot outside of the home would not be an ideal match for him as a forever home.
He loves to go for car rides, and really enjoys exploring new places in the great outdoors. He does well with other dogs, but prefers those similar to him in size and likes to curl up by his dog buddy for snoozes throughout the day. A watchdog, he definitely is, but quiets down easily when told it's okay.
Theodore is a loving dog, who has come a very long way, but needs his own forever home that will meet him in the middle, understanding where he's come from, and willing to love him as much as he will love them.

My adoption donation is $ 300 +tax $20.63

All dogs are current on core vaccines, spayed/neutered, heartworm tested and on preventative, micro-chipped and if recommended by a Vet have had a dental cleaning and other treatment to get and keep them healthy while in the rescues care.  

All dogs are living in foster homes and house manners including potty training and any behavioral issues are being worked on.  But we never say our dogs are 100% house trained as when they transition to a new home there can be accidents while they adjust to a new environment and schedule.  

PNC Rescue is a 501c3 non-profit and any and all donations over and above the adoption donation are tax deductible.  We have a large group of dogs in our Furever Foster program that acts as a foster based sanctuary for dogs not likely to be adopted.  The rescue keeps these dogs healthy, comfortable and on necessary medications with necessary treatments for life.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact us via email, and remember we are all volunteers.  Your patience is appreciated! 





About PNC Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

PNC Rescue is a small dog rescue organization made up of volunteers located throughout the Midwest area.

Our group is dedicated to the breeds of Pekingese and Japanese Chin, and our purpose is to rescue and rehabilitate abused, abandoned, neglected and surrendered dogs. These dogs are provided with the attention, care and medical treatment necessary including spaying/neutering, until a permanent home can be found.

Our organization consists of volunteers and relies on public donations to provide medical treatment for the dogs in our care. 100% of all donations go to the benefit of the animals.

Our Adoption Process...

Anyone interested in adopting one of our pets will need to fill out our online adoption application found at our website:

We have a process in which we check references you have provided us on your application and perform a home visit. An approved adopter will then need to sign an adoption contract and provide us with full payment of the adoption fee. All dogs are spayed/neutered and are brought up-to-date on all their shots before they leave our care.

It is extremely rare, but if, after all our efforts and yours, an adoption doesn't work out we ask that the dog be returned to us and we confirm that we will take the dog back providing a cushion for both.
