Behavior

  • Temperament

    The Pekingese is an independent and headstrong dog with very little fear so they will go after animals 10 times their size without thinking twice in order to protect their family. This quality makes them very good watchdogs but it can also get them into trouble due to their small size. The Pekingese should be a wonderful addition to your family.
