Painfully witnessing both my Rescued Pekingese’s
battling and succumbing to afflictions which plagued and ravished their bodies:
from the neglect and abuse at the hands of humans.
I have decided through my traumatic journey of
grief over the loss of both dogs to continue my voyage of dedication and
purpose: with my unrelenting commitment to rescued hearts in the vast and
reprehensible world of neglected and abused dogs.
In my soul searching (and the guidance of the
Lords hands) I have been introduced to the world of a Rescue in need one of a
different circumstance than what I was previously exposed to: one of a retired
show dog in need of re-homing.
At this time I am honored and blessed to
introduce my newest Rescued heart: Kaiser M. Wilfram aus Deutschland (Germany).
Kaiser is a charming 2 ½ year old pedigree
Pekingese of superior blood line. However unable to climb to the top in his
breed classification as swiftly as his siblings- long story short: he needed to
find a forever home.
After the lengthy transatlantic flight from
Europe to the mitten state Kaiser is settling in to his “forever home” with
vigor. Not a rescue of neglected or abuse: but one of travel, primping and for
the most part selected cage life.
With each passing day Kaiser is discovering the
wonders of having his own yard with 24/7 love encouragement and companionship.
The gorgeous thick natural show coat is in his past, comfort and ease rules his
With lightning speed Kaiser has eagerly becoming
an important part of our life and family, still to this day and a regal
ambassador for his breed and pedigree.
Some stories have a very happy ending, and this
is one. However most are no so lucky.
I invite you to take a few moments and look over
the P.C.F. website (Pekinese Charitable Foundation, Inc.) you might find the
love of your life listed.
In today’s world little dogs are taking the
blunt of frustration and hate: which seems to be free floating in our society.
The organization is swamped with dogs in need.
Please do something today to improve the life of
Perhaps together we can stop the abuse and
neglect at the hands of those cruel monsters that injure and maim those who
have no voice.
