Pekingese

Staff was very helpful in answering all my questions before we purchase our pekingese. We were updated every few days as to what was going on with our puppy and the day of arrival was easy. Great service.

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.
