I had a pekingnese growing up, he lived to about 15/16. I never thought of them as a rare breed though.

Sabinalynn, your babies are adorable!!


I have one pekingese named Oreo. He's 9 years old, and he is the sweetest and most laid-back dog I have ever met. Here are a few pics...

Doing what he does best... begging for food...


Relaxing with one of his favorite toys, his rubber (elvis) chicken...

I have a Peik. His name is Lightining. He's a hoot. Just like Oreo he begs, and does a good job cause I give in and give him a treat. He actully kind of bullies our 2 German Shepherds. not so cute. Like kelbel35 we cut his hair too. If I knew how to post a picture I would.

I have 2 pekingese that are my babies and I love dearly. I feel like pekingese are a fairly rare breed compare to other breeds. Does anyone else own pekingese? Can you post pics? Attached are pics of my babies:smile:

You babies are GORGEOUS!!!!!!!! I saw white one last week while walking my Mia...that pekingese was also very very cute and friendly!! I really like the Pekingese look! :smile:

I do too! Mine is officially named Ziyi but American usually mistake it for Ziggie which is ok. She responds to both, Ziyi and Ziggie oh sometimes Zigg. I'll try to post some pics. My bf always says she looks like a lion dance hahaha.

When I was a kid, I felt that the #1 breed in my neighborhood was the peke followed by the Pomeranian.

I never liked them as a kid, finding them yappy and NIPPY. Those were the dogs that would run out of their houses and chase kids.

You could hear their high pitch voices all day long.

But I've also met sweet pekes who love to do nothing more than snuggle with you. So I'm inclined to think that Pekes are great dogs, but certain humans are just bad owners!!! :smile:

Yeah, this was a dog my mom took for someone and she only liked her. I was really young, like 3 or 4, so I really didn't care. I would rather look for some legos or lincoln logs to play with than to play with her.
