A Pekingese is not a pet dog; he is an undersized lion.

Known as the "lion dog" in China, the Pekingese has been a symbol of good luck in China for hundreds of years. 

Only members of the Chinese court could own a Pekingese. 

The Peke first came to the attention of the outside world in 1860 when the British overran the Summer Palace. Courtiers had killed all but five of the dogs so they would not fall into outsiders' hands. The remaining five were brought to England where they were an instant hit. Today the Peke is a pampered pet.

The Pekingese stands just 9 inches tall at the shoulder and weighs no more than fourteen pounds. He has a long, straight, abundant double coat that requires daily grooming. The Peke's coat comes in all colours.

A loyal, devoted, and protective little dog, the Pekingese makes a good watchdog. He is also lively, affectionate, and spirited. Bred to be a lapdog companion, he fits well into the smallest accommodation. He enjoys being petted and fussed over and makes a good pet for older children. A great dog for the couch potato, he requires minimal exercise.

The Peke is independent, self-centered, and proud. He can be stubborn, and he likes to get his own way! His owner will need to be firm and strong and have lots of patience. Training can be a challenge, and socialization should begin early as the Peke is naturally suspicious of other dogs and people.
