The Pekingese has been bred as a companion pet for centuries. As a toy breed it grows to around 7 to 14 pounds and stands around 8 inches tall in adulthood. The Peke has a beautiful long flowing coat. Maintain the coat by brushing twice weekly. The Pekingese is typically seen in biscuit, white, fawn, and red sable. Because of their tiny size the Pekingese is well suited for apartment life and makes for a great indoor pet.
