Pekingese / Brussels Griffon / Mixed (long coat) : : Male : : Small
We have received a tremendous amount of interest in Peekaboo -- and why not? He's such a cutie! Please be patient as we read through adoption applications for him and other dogs and get in touch with those who applied. We do our best to contact everyone, although it may take awhile.
Because Peekaboo has some behavior issues, we will place him only with a family that is within or near the north Orange County-Long Beach area, as he will need multiple visits with his potential adopters before being placed in his home, and we don't expect anyone to drive many miles. Thank you for understanding. Here is his story:
He LOVES to play fetch. He will fetch a tennis ball until he drops! We don’t let him get to that point but I’m pretty sure there would be no stopping him. He also likes stuffed toys and lying in his own wading pool. He’s definitely NOT a fan of other dogs. He was quite the curmudgeon when he came out of the shelter, where he was going to be euthanized. At that time – about 3 years ago – he was VERY picky about the people he liked, who were few, and if not handled correctly, he would bite. So we were asked to take him, and we did. It took nearly a year for him to get comfortable with more than 2 or 3 people, but he has come a long way since then. He can still be persnickety, but he has gotten much better. He will need a home where he can be allowed to get comfortable at his own pace – in fact, he likely will require a few visits to the new home with me before he’ll be comfortable enough to stay. He gets very stressed outside of his environment, so we will want to ease him into a new one slowly. He needs to be in an adults-only home without other dogs or cats.
We’re not looking for a foster for Peekaboo right now. Since he isn’t comfortable in new environments, we are keeping him where he is until he finds a forever home.
All dogs are seen by appointment only. Our adoptions include an application, meeting the dog, a home check, and an adoption contract. Please visit www.shamrockrescue.org/info/adoption for more information.
