For those people who need a distinctive looking pet, the Pekingese breed is a perfect fit. You will never have to worry about Pekingese puppies being confused for other types of dogs, and they provide a nice bit of companionship to go along with their distinctive look.
As you might have guessed, the Pekingese breed is known for its beautiful, flowing coat that is the one distinctive part of its appearance. While some dogs are a set color, Pekingese puppies come in a number of different shades, so there is a good bit of variance in this breed. Nothing about these dogs is large, meaning that both their features and their body are quite petite.
Even though they might not be the biggest dogs on the block, Pekingese puppies are not scared of anyone. In fact, they are sometimes foolishly brave. They have lots of courage and lots of energy to expend and they are not shy about protecting your home. While not the most effective guard dogs on the market, Pekingese puppies are enough of a nuisance to serve as excellent watch dogs. Owners will learn from the beginning that Pekingese puppies do what they want to do when they want to do it. They have a strong will about them that is hard to break, but they will be very submissive to their master. Donâ€™t expect strangers to have similar success controlling their actions, though.
Though the Pekingese breed does not have too many health problems to note, they do have a few things that owners must keep an eye out for if they want a healthy pet. Since they mostly live inside and donâ€™t mind being lazy for quite a while, these dogs have a tendency to let their weight become an issue. They are canine couch potatoes, so owners have to make sure that new Pekingese puppies get plenty of exercise and donâ€™t eat too much. In addition, these dogs are unique in the fact that they pick up colds very easily. Owners will want to keep an eye out for that.
While many dogs need a large, open space to survive, the Pekingese breed does just fine in whatever sort of atmosphere you prefer. They are perfect dogs for smaller apartments, because they can make themselves at home without having to have a large yard to move around in. Still, they do like to be outside, but can get by with only a couple of trips to the park or the occasional walk. This is why Pekingese puppies are a favorite for college students across the country.
