Hi!  My name is Pugsley and I am a 9 year old, handsome Pekingese. I was surrendered due to a new baby on the way. It isn't that my person didn’t love me, because she has called to see that I am doing alright and feels really bad that I am gone.  Children make me a little nervous (they scare me and I can react badly) but I think adults are awesome! My foster mom says that I’ve had a pretty good life so far and I am accustomed to soft beds and good food. She says I am very smart and I protect her from the squirrels in the yard.

At first, I was confused and afraid. I did not want anything to do with these new people. Then I found they were not too bad and I adjusted to this house.  In a couple of weeks I really settled in. I feel comfortable now and have learned the house rules.  I follow my foster Mom around like a shadow and help with whatever she is doing. I am very gentle when taking treats, we have little bits of beef jerky before bed, then I go right into my bed next her bed and sleep until she gets up.  I am a very clean and completely house trained. I bark when someone comes to the door then greet them with my tail going like crazy.  I go for walks with her so she can get some exercise.  I like my foster Mom and Dad but really want a home of my own where I can be the ONLY dog again. My hope is that my forever home is with adults that are home most of the time.  It would have a fenced yard where I can run around chasing squirrels, run like the wind and roll in the snow. Then in the evening I would like to cuddle up on the couch watching TV so I can get lots of love. I love to cuddle!

I do have one issue; I guard my toys and treats.  My foster Dad has been working with me playing ball using 2 balls. I will bring back the ball but will not give it to him until he throws the 2nd ball. I get so confused; I put down the first ball and go for the 2nd ball.  Sometimes I forget now and give him the ball before he throws the 2nd ball.  Oh it is so hard to keep track of 2 big balls!

My new family will need to be confident people who can tell me NO when needed as I am a true male peke. I will back off when I hear a firm voice telling me to sit and stay.

So, you can see I am a very handsome, loving, active, sweet, fun, smart 9 year old, male Pekingese.

My adoption donation is $ 150 + Tax $ 10.71.

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.

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.
