Buster's Story...
Did you know November is Adopt A Senior Month?? Well, we have the perfect little senior for you and he is looking for his furever family. Meet Buster!! Buster is a purebred Pekingese. Now he's not a young whippersnapper by any means, Buster is a distinguished gentleman of 9 years. Like with most distinguished gentlemen Buster doesn't care for a lot of ruckus. He's great with other animals, cats and dogs, but he prefers a quieter environment when it come to children. Buster prefers to live with adullts and children over the age of 10. The fast movements of smaller children, terrify Buster and he doesn't feel safe.

Buster did test positive for heart-worms but is in the midst of treatment and doing fabulously! Heart-worms are only transmitted by a mosquitoes and are NOT simply contagious to other dogs through saliva or blood. Keeping your dog on prevention is imperative to keeping your dog heart-worm negative. Fortunately, heart worms are treatable and preventable. Please contact us if you would like more information to understand heart-worms better and Buster's current treatment, which is covered by RARE and no additional cost to his adopter. Buster deserves to be adopted and is looking forward to being heart-worm free!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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