Posted Breed: Pekingese (medium coat). Meet Einstein! Einstein was dumped by his previous owner at a Petco in Redondo Beach. He is a Pekingese, 7 lbs., 8-10 yr. old and he is almost blind in both eyes and deaf in both ears. He is not as high maintenance as people think he is. He absolutely loves to go on walks. His walks are very easygoing because he has no interest in other dogs that walk pass by him, so there is nothing for you to worry about. When he finds a new home,he will memorize the layout of your house very quickly and will soon be able to use the bathroom on his own if you leave the door/window open to your backyard. Will you be the one to open your heart for him? Einstein has been completed vetted, fecal test, complete blood work, dental, micro chip, deworm, all vaccines, and neutered. If interested, please go to www.doggies911rescue.org and fill out an application to adopt. He really deserves a good home and promises to be the best companion ever! WE DO NOT SHIP DOGS OUT OF STATE. If you are interested, please go to www.doggies911rescue.org and fill out an application to possibly adopt. WE DO NOT SHIP DOGS OUT OF STATE.

More About Pekingese Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.
