This is JJ and he’s looking for his retirement home! He a 12 years young Pekingese (although some say he looks more like a Tibetan Spaniel) and is available for adoption through Broken Tail Rescue in Worcester, MA. He’s a pretty laid back little guy that likes his belly rubbed. When JJ was surrendered to Broken Tail Rescue, he appeared to be blind in one eye, and there was a prior vet’s recommendation to remove that eye. Since he’s been in his foster home, its been discovered that he needs thyroid medication (very invexpensive), and he seemed to regain some vision in that eye! Even though JJ is partially blind in one eye, and his hearing is not 100% anymore, nothing stops him! Since he’s a “mature” dog, you won’t have to worry about him tearing up your home or having accidents everywhere, but he’s young enough that he loves to go for car rides and for walks with his foster family! JJ gets along great with their other dog and their cat. He don’t like being excessively handled, so a home with adults is really his alley. What he really wants is a forever retirement home that doesn’t see his shortcomings as flaws and promises to rub behind his ears every day!
