Pekingese Description

The Pekingese is a small and short legged breed of dog with a Pug-like face and long, pendent styled ears. They have a beautiful, feathered tail which is high set and carried over to one side. Their coat is long and dense and available in a wide range of colours.

Pekingese Character

They have a tendency to behave like royalty and are a very regal little dog. Exceptionally self confident for such a small breed, they are better with older children as they can be slightly snappy if provoked (as with most dogs). They are naturally stubborn and prefer to do things at their own pace but are very loving, loyal dogs. The one thing owners have to be careful of is the protection of their eyes from sand / dust and possibly cats. Another small in stature, but huge in character breed of dog.
