Hershey's Story...
Hershey is a very special boy. He was saved by his vet when the "owners" brought him in to have him euthanized. The husband had been abusing him and was going to kill him if he wasn't out of the house asap. His vet knew what a good and sweet boy he is, so he refused to kill him.

He has been neutered, tested negative for heartworm and given all shots. He will be having behavior modification training. Because of the abuse, he shows some aggression when someone tries to take something away from him. Other than that, he is a sweet and loving boy....once he sees that you aren't going to hurt him. He wears a harness all the time because we think it makes him feel more comfortable. He will let you take it off to bath him, but then insists on it being put back on. He is very smart and often communicates the things he wants. When he has been through the program, we expect him to be ready to go to his new home. He needs a home full of love and patience to show him he is safe and loved.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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