WASHINGTON – Poor Smushie. This 7-year-old purebred Pekingese arrived at the Washington Animal Rescue League from South Carolina with his best friend, who has since been adopted.
Now Smushie is inconsolable.
He is a gentle senior who seems comfortable around people of all ages, although he isn’t particularly fond of other dogs; apparently, his canine BFF was an exception.
Smushie is currently undergoing heartworm treatment, which means his physical activity needs to be limited until its completion. But that shouldn’t deter any potential adopters because, let’s face it, Smushie isn’t exactly the athletic type.
All he wants is a calm, reasonably quiet home where he can share some quality time with a person of his own.
Because of his mature status, Smushie qualifies for our Boomers’ Buddies program which means his adoption fee will be waived for adopters age 50 or older.
