Your Questions About Pekingese Lab Mix

Mary asks…

What’s some good info to know on Pekingese?

My friend has puppies, I have 2 more weeks before picking up the puppy. So is there anything I should know about Pekingese?

BTW I have a boxer/lab mix now she is 6 years old.
Plus I have 2 kids – 4 years old and 1 years old.
BTW where the dog is now (with momma and dadda) there is a 6 year old and a 1 year old living there.
The puppy will be 6 weeks old when I pick it up.

Hi there,

Following are links to both the AKC’s and UKC’s websites which discusses the Pekingese breed in detail. It would be very good for you to read about the breed:


Also, I’ve attached a link to an article about the timing of picking up your puppy – this recommends picking up the new puppy between 7 and 12 weeks, and also discusses socialization and training.


I hope you find this information helpful. Best of luck to you and your new pup!


Followup in response to kch05’s comment:

While I have never owned a Pekingese and respect your comment, the AKC disagrees with you regarding their temperament. I think that early socialization with other dogs is absolutely KEY.

The AKC’s site states
“Pekingese possess a regal dignity, intelligence and self-importance, making them good natured, opinionated and affectionate family companions. Their small size makes them a good choice for apartment life, but they are sometimes difficult to housebreak. They are relatively inactive indoors and do not need a yard, but enjoy walks. Because of their long undercoats, Pekes need at least an hourly brushing session per week.”
