For centuries, Pekingese dogs were bred as the valued companions of the imperial family of China. Today, the Pekingese breed will greet you with dignity and pride and is fully aware of its powerful lineage. These dogs show great affection for their humans but have a stubborn streak and a sense of pride that can be difficult to work with. The Peke considers himself in charge of any situation, so informing your dog who the alpha is is crucial to having a manageable companion.
 
The Pekingese is a truly small dog, standing about 6-9 inches at the shoulder and weighing between 7-14 pounds. Famous for their long flowing black or white coat, the Pekingese is unmistakable for any other breed. 
 
Of all small dogs that think they’re bigger than they are, the Pekingese might be the boldest! They’ve never met another dog they didn’t think they could boss around a bit. To help ensure your Pekingese doesn’t find itself in trouble, introduce him to large dogs under close supervision and be prepared to break up any potential quarrels. 
 
They’re quite social and with a bit of training will be friendly with anyone.
