Peanut's Story...
Hi! My name is Peanut and I’m available for adoption!
I’m a Pekingese and used to be a breeder at a puppy mill where I had some rough times. After lots of TLC, I finally learned what it’s like to be a normal dog and can’t wait to show my new family how good I am! I’m housetrained, leash-trained and don’t bite, bark, jump, whine, or beg! I don’t have a mean bone in my body so I love everybody I meet, including other dogs, cats and even babies.
Pekingese live between 12-15 years and I’m only 8, so I like to consider myself middle-aged. I’m super low maintenance and since I came from a puppy mill, I’m still learning how to play but I do love to get scratched and follow you everywhere. (Ninety-nine percent of the time if you look down, I’m within a 5 foot radius of you.) I LOVE attention and my eyes close and my body relaxes every time you love on me. But I know humans have very busy lives so I won’t ever beg; I’m just happy to be by you. When I get scratched/picked up, my foster parents always like to laugh at how limp I get and they love to flip me on my back while I make funny oinking noises.
My favorite thing to do eat! I get so excited when it’s breakfast or dinnertime, I sit like my foster mom wants me to, but my butt and tail can’t stop wiggling. I hear them tell me I’m quite a sight! When it’s time for my foster parents to eat I won’t make a noise, but I do like to properly sit close by to show them how good I am. And if you turn your head, I’ll move and properly sit again, just in case you happened to miss it, but I won’t ever jump on you or beg for food.
I am very eager to please and will do anything to show you how thankful I am to have a good home! My adoption fee is only $200 to cover my expenses while I am in foster care.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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