Pet Corner: Susie

Name: Susie
Breed: Purebred Pekingese
Age: 4 years old
Sex: Female
Color: White coat
Date of arrival at Dakin: 11/14/14


Susie was brought to Dakin because of allergies in her family. She is 4 years old and is very kind and gentle. She may be a bit shy at first, but she is ready to bond with a new family and can’t wait for a new home.

Susie is an ideal first dog for someone unfamiliar with dogs because she’s easygoing. If there are kids in the family, it’s best that they be at least 7 years old, but if they’re younger, just bring them in to meet her first.

Her energy level is moderate, and if there’s another dog in the home, Susie will handle it! She doesn’t have a history with cats, so they will be unfamiliar to her.
