Hi! My name is Garret and I am handsome Pekingese. I am 19 pounds and PNC estimates that I am between 3-5 years old.
Please check back for updates. My foster mom will post more as she gets to know me.
2/28/17 Update from the foster mom:
Meet Garrett. He's new around here, the newest member of our foster family. He's a pretty shy guy; but after only a few hours with us he took a treat from me and even took one from Eli, and let Eli pet him as a reward. We'll keep working on his confidence in hopes he'll be a sassy, silly Peke in no time. He's available for adoption through pncmidwest.org.
11/19/16-From the foster mom:
Garret does take some time to warm up to new people. When he first arrived, I thought he liked men better than women because he seemed to like my male friends and looked for attention from them. He is still fearful of being picked up but no longer runs all over the house when it's time for bed (all the dogs sleep on my bed at night). Sometimes, I will say 'night-night time' and he will go into my bedroom and sort of look to be picked up, but usually I have to find him and pick him up. He is working on housebreaking, but still doesn't understand we go outside for that, but he has learned to go potty on newspapers. He lives with my three pekes and he lives with a big dog as well. He loves to follow him outside and has done fine with him. He will only eat his food on a plate or on the floor, but has learned to take treats nicely. He loves to bark 'woo...woo ...woo' when he's excited (especially for food). I'm not sure how he would do on a leash as I have a fenced yard. On the colder nights, he will snuggle up to me after it settles down and I carry him outside in the mornings. He is confused with the new snow so we will be working on that.
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 rescue’s 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.
