Pekingese has an extravagant, long, straight-flowing coat that has
profuse feathering and comes in all colors. It has a broad head
that is wide between their large, dark, lucid and slightly prominent
eyes. The face is flat with a dark, wrinkled muzzle, and drooping
heart-shaped, long feathering ears. Their necks are short and thick.
When their mouth is closed, neither teeth nor tongue should show.
These tiny, heavy boned dogs have a characteristic rolling gait.
Pekingese are very brave little dogs, courageous to the point of
foolhardiness! They are sensitive, independent and extremely affectionate
with their master, but are wary of strangers.
Pekingese is very proud and full of self importance, known to be
stubborn, and appearing aloof with strangers. He is loyal and protective
of home and family, considered a very easy keeper, needing only
minimal exercise. His coat sheds a little and so needs grooming
about once a week. Eyes, ears and nose should be gently cleaned
periodically. He will do well in a small abode. Is a Peke puppy
right for your family?
