This adorable toy breed originated in China many years ago. Though they are super-tiny, the Pekingese are referred to as Lion Dogs because they resemble Chinese guardian lions. Their name was inspired by the city, Peking in Beijing. Pekingese dogs usually weigh 7-14 pounds and live for 12-15 years. They’re very affectionate and fun friends for children. They love going outside and being active. You may find them prancing or playing in the grass. They don’t need a lot of exercise, so they’re a good choice for an owner with minimal space.  Once in a while, you may catch a glimpse of their obstinate trait, but if you train them at a young age, your Pekingese will be a friend for life.
