The Pekingese is a tough, brave, independent, and affectionate breed that make fantastic companions and are very loyal to their master. If overfed, the Pekingese will become overweight quickly. Take precaution that your Pekingese does not develop "small dog syndrome" by setting limitations and never wavering in your role as pack leader. If properly socialized and trained, the Pekinese can become a wonderful watchdog, thanks to their powerful bark, or they can just be a wonderful lap dog.
The Pekingese can come in a seemingly limitless array of colors and all coat colors are acceptable in show dogs and considered of equal merit.
