Peaches is a 4 year old Pekingese. She was an owner surrender to a local shelter. She was surrendered due to nipping a child. She will not be adopted to a family with children. She did not break the skin. More of a warning. Once she has had all her medical she will be up for adoption. She is being fostered in No. Va. Complete our on line application if you are interested in adopting Peaches. Her adoption fee is $350. We require a home visit and vet reference. She did great with getting a bath and being brushed out.

UPDATE FROM PEACHES' FOSTER MOM:She's sweet. When I come she sometimes stands on her hind legs, puts her front paws together and then paws at the air to ensure she has your attention. She loves attention, but will also lay quietly beside you or on your lap. She gives kisses. She's not afraid of any household noises. She alerts at noise from the outside, and so announces company, but warms up to them as soon as they are in the house. She does not seem interested in toys...she's rather you pet her or play with her. She gets along with other small dogs (I don't know about big dogs or cats), but is more interested in her people than her dog housemates. She has not appeared to be food aggressive. She was no problem to bath or clip the mats from between her paw pads or from behind her ears. She behaved well at the vets. She is house trained and also uses piddle pads.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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