An ancient breed of dog, Pekingese are often called Lion Dogs due to their resemblance to representations of Chinese guardian lions. Being toy dogs, Pekingese puppies are substantially smaller than lions, growing on average from 6″ to 9″ (15 to 23cm) tall and weighing between 6 to 12 pounds (2 to 6kg).
They come in various colours: red , fawn, brindle, black, white and parti colour. Their coats are high maintenance, needing to be groomed daily paying attention to the ears and armpits to prevent mats and tangles.
Pekingese can adapt to any living environment so long as they have the company of their master. If no garden is available, then they will benefit from a couple of short walks.
Pekingese puppies make excellent family pets, but will tend to pick a favourite member of that family for extra attention. They are also happy in the company of other dogs as long as they are socialised from an early age.
