The Pekingese history, can be traced back to early China. Around the early 1900s the breed became popular in other countries in western regions, often proving popular with celebrities and the like.
The Pekingese Temperament
This is a very popular dog breed, not only because of its cute appearance but also because of its temperament.
One could be excused for assuming that little toy dog varieties are also dainty and subdued.
Well the Pekingese breed, while cute and dainty, is a very proud dog that carries itself assuredly and can be quite stubborn in a number of ways. But you can expect most Peningese to be content to sit quietly around the house, preferably on a fluffy pillow. However, bring out the toys and you will have a very playful, entertaining little dog on your hands.
