Beasley (aka 1355)
|Size||Small (6-20 lbs)|
Beasley (aka Bea, Beezy, Beez, and the Bee’s Knees) is a DELIGHT! Its only been a few days since she arrived at Muttville, and her darling, playful personality is starting to shine through. True to her breed, this little 10 year old, 15 lb. Pekingese is confident and determined. She doesn’t mind a slow stroll around the neighborhood and through the park, just as long as there are plenty of stops to sniff around. She refuses to go up or down stairs, preferring to be carried; not unexpected from a dog whose breed was carried in the sleeves of robes worn by members of the Chinese Imperial Household centuries ago. I make sure she gets let out to pee every few hours and pay attention when she heads to the back door, so far there haven’t been any “accidents.”
On Wednesday, I took her to work with me at Dogster HQ and she won the hearts of everyone with her permanent wink (she has one eye), snaggled-tooth underbite, and confident waddle. She was featured on Dogster’s Facebook page and received close to 400 Likes! https://www.facebook.com/dogster She got along perfectly fine with the other dogs at the office (an Australian Shepard, Boston Terrier, and Yorkshire Terrier), and sat in my lap quietly during an hour-long meeting. Pekingese ARE the ultimate lap dogs! She took the train and rode the bus like a trooper! On Thursday night I took her to meet my friend’s 6-month old kittens, recently adopted from the SFSPCA, and she sat perfectly still as they approached her to get a sniff. She didn’t lunge or attempt to chase them. I think its safe to say that Beasley is great with other dogs AND cats.
We’re delighted to report that Beasley is currently in a loving and caring home. Thanks to all the wonderful friends of Muttville who helped to make this happen.
