Facts about Pearl

  • Breed: Pekingese/Chihuahua Mix
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
Pearl is a 3-year old, 8 pound love of a dog who—thanks to a pronounced underbite—is impossible to photograph well. In photos, she always has a look that says, “I’m gonna bite your fingers off when you’re not looking!” Happily, in real life, this little Pomeranian mix is nothing but a sweetie.

Pearl is a bit of an old soul in a young dog. She is very calm and happy to be held and cuddled for long periods of time. She also likes to play kissy face from time to time.

But though her natural demeanor is calm, she lives in a foster home with 2 other young dogs and 11 cats—and she has adapted quite nicely. She will happily wrestle with the other dogs. She’s also been exposed to large dogs and has no problems with them. But her BFF in the house is a little black kitten named Boo Boo, and she treats her as her personal play toy.

If the dogs aren’t in the mood to play, she’ll happily amuse herself with her toys, or—and this is a favorite activity—spend vast amounts of time fluffing up her bed covers till they’re just right.

In addition to her sweet and accommodating personality, Pearl is also well-mannered. She is house-trained. She likes car rides. She comes when called and walks well on a leash. She is not crate-trained only because her foster has had no need to crate her because she is housebroken and non-destructive. She’s also a quiet dog, though she reserves the right to talk to you when you have treats in your hand.

Pearl has a heart murmur, a congenital condition. This in no way affects her quality of life and is not expected to shorten her life. However, because of the murmur, it is not safe for her to undergo anesthesia. For that reason, she cannot be spayed. She will need a home where there are no un-neutered males around.

Pearl would do equally well in a home or apartment, as an only dog or with other dogs (or cats). She’s low-maintenance but still chock full of love—perfect for someone just wants a little bit of dog in their life.

About Dashing Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a new group, having just started up in September of 2015. The board and much of the membership (we have about 20 members) is made up of veterans of other rescue groups. Our mission is to pull dogs from local shelters, take them into our homes (we are a foster-only organization), and adopt them out to good families. We are always looking for more fosters and would love to hear from you if you might have room in your home for one more waggly tail.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We have regular, monthly events at the Flower Mound Petsmart and the Argyle Feed Store in Argyle.

Our Adoption Process...

Adopters will need to fill out an adoption application and adoption contract. If you live in an apartment, we will call your apartment office to verify they allow dogs. We will also do a vet check call.

Our adoption fee is $225 and includes spay/neuter, shots up to date and microchip.

We are much faster responding to emails than phone calls.
