Pekingese Characteristics

The Pekingese is perhaps the quintessential lap dog. Smart, loyal, and above all, snuggly, these dogs make wonderful companions for just about anyone, from retirees to new pet parents to apartment dwellers. They can be a little high-maintenance from time to time, but are incredibly loyal and loving to their family.

Fast Facts

  • Energy Low
  • Size Small
  • Trainability Determined

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. 

How dog-friendly is Arizona?

In general, Arizona is a great place for dogs – with parks, plenty of dog-griendly restaurants, and great access to pet care. The one downside is that the state has a very low percentage of pet-friendy rentals available. This single factor brings their overall score down a bit.


Pawsafe put Arizona in the 46th place for pet-friendliness in their study. They noted the relatively low percentage of pet-friendly rentals at just 18%, which brought the overal score down. 


A similar study from Safewise puts Arizona as a more pet-friendly place, ranking the state at 27th.


Both of these studies consider a wide range of important factors for your beloved pet’s health and happiness – including pet care costs, walkability scores, the number of pet-friendly rentals, and animal welfare laws.

How pet-friendly are Arizona’s cities?

SmartAsset reviewed the 100 largest U.S. cities to grade them for pet-friendliness. 

Tucson

In their study, SmartAsset named Tucson as the most pet-friendly city in the country! This is the second year in a row that the city has received such an honor.


Tucson has the fifth highest number of dog parks, vet offices and dog-friendly restaurants per 10,000 establishments. The city has 254 dog-friendly restaurants, which ranks in the top 20. There are also four dog-friendly shopping centers in the city.

Phoenix

In the same study, Phoenix was ranked as the 18th most pet-friendly city. Another study by WalletHub placed Phoenix 22nd.


There are 172 dog-friendly restaurants in the city and 11 dog-friendly shopping centers. Additionally, the city of Scottsdale tied for the 24th most pet-friendly city. It has 112 dog-friendly restaurants and 16 dog friendly shopping centers.

Scottsdale

WalletHub did a similar study that rated Scottsdale as the most pet-friendly city in the country. The key factor for WalletHub’s ranking is Scottdale’s fantastic pet health and wellness. They also ranked third for outdoor pet-friendliness.

A few more pet-related Arizona facts

In Arizona, 43% residents own a dog, which is above the national average of 40%. According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), the most popular dogs in the state are Labrador Retrievers, German Shepherds, and Golden Retrievers. In the city of Phoenix, these breeds are just as popular, but people also love Pit Bulls.


The state’s total pet ownership percentage is also far above the national average with 69% of Arizona homes owning a pet. Like we said, Arizona loves its pets!

Animal welfare & dog shelters in Arizona

Arizona saved 2,458 more animals in 2020 than in 2019 and 33 of the state’s 66 animal shelters are no-kill shelters. The overall save rate for the state is approximately 86% so they only need a small increase to meet the 90% to become a no-kill state. We hope to see this percentage go up!
