More about Peekachoo

Peekachoo is a precious four-year-old Pekingese who was at a shelter where his days were numbered due to the high volume of dogs there.  His Christmas wish came true when he was rescued by AEAR.  Peekachoo is a happy-go-lucky fellow who gets along well with people of all ages as well as dogs too.
