The Pekingese dog, Peking Lion Dog, Pekinese or Peke is a breed of toy dog, originating in China.

The Pekingese’s flat face and large eyes are some of the breed’s most obvious characteristics. The body is compact and low to the ground. Pekingese also have a muscular and durable body.

The Pekingese must be kept indoors, as their flattened faces and nasal structure can cause them to develop breathing problems, making it difficult for them to regulate their body temperature in hot weather.

Keeping the Pekingese coat healthy and presentable requires daily brushing and a trip to the groomer every 8–12 weeks. Dogs intended as a house pet may be kept in a puppy cut, which requires less maintenance than a show coat.

It is important to remove foreign materials from the eyes daily, and clean the creases on the face to prevent sores (hot spots).

It is also necessary to keep and maintain the long fur in the rear end (aka the “trousers” or “skirt”) clean and well-groomed, as the area is prone to soiling. In cold climates, the trousers may accumulate clumps of snowballs.

All breed standards allow a wide range of color combinations. The majority of Pekingese are gold, red or sable. Cream, black, white, tan, black-and-tan and occasionally ‘blue’ or slate grey have appeared in the breed. The latter often has poor pigment and light eyes.

Albino Pekingese (white with pink eyes) should not be bred due to health problems associated with albinism.

In recent years, their popularity has declined, eclipsed by similar breeds such as the Shih Tzu. However, in 2021 a Pekingese named Wasabi won the Westminster dog show, the fourth time a Pekingese won Best in Show at Westminster.
