In this post, we are going to share with you some information about the most recent breeds of dogs, especially those breeds that can awaken tenderness in people from the first sight. The title already mentions it, many breeds of these dogs, such as the Peekapoo born from the crossing of a Pekingese and Poodle, are really adorable, they even look like plush or stuffed animals.
This breed is one of the most adorable, at first glance these puppies can be mistaken for stuffed animals, they are just adorable.
The Peekapoo is a hybrid dog breed that has been around for a while; This beautiful breed is certainly not a fad.
Peekapoo dogs make excellent watchdogs due to their protective personalities and loud barking. They may be perfect for people with allergies, as they don’t shed much.
Poodles come in three sizes, from the large standard poodle to the medium miniature poodle and the small toy poodle.
Peekapoo puppies are bred from Miniature or Toy varieties.
Due to their kinship to miniature or toy poodles, Peekapoo adults average 11 inches tall.
Like many hybrid dogs, weight can vary between pups. A Peekapoo must weigh less than 20 pounds, and some weigh only 10 pounds.
The Peekapoo is well built, strong and hardy. This is an active and cute dog.
For example, your Peekapoo can be fawn, white with brown or brindle spots, white with black spots, silver, gray, chocolate brown, or any combination of the above.
So, if you are looking for a specific color, like a black or white Peekapoo, you might have a longer wait.
Is the Peekapoo hypoallergenic?
For this reason, they are often called hypoallergenic dogs. However, this is not technically correct.
Poodles are a hypoallergenic breed of dog, but Pekingese are not. The Peekapoo is a cross between the Poodle and the Pekingese, and there is no way of knowing which parent dog will take the Peekapoo next. You can learn more about the grooming requirements here.
This uncertainty also applies to the Peekapoo’s temperament.
Character and behavior
The Peekapoo is loyal, affectionate and cheerful. He is sensitive and family oriented. This dog does not tolerate loneliness and becomes uncontrollable from boredom. The Peekapoo gets along well with teenagers, dogs, and every other household he grew up with. He is distrustful of strangers, and therefore we always bark and warn about them or about unusual sounds.
These fabulous little dogs can have an outgoing and active personality.
Although they may be perfectly content to snuggle into your lap for a moment, they would love to be out for a walk with you in an instant!
As they are a hybrid, they may exhibit more Pekingese than Poodle traits or vice versa.
However, both the Poodle and the Pekingese are friendly and outgoing dogs, the difference between one Peekapoo and another may not be as noticeable as with some other hybrids.
Unfortunately, the health of Pekingese parents can be passed on to the puppy, which can make an energetic dog unable to burn his energy properly.
The Peekapoo’s facial structure can make them more prone to respiratory problems.
This is because the Pekingese parent is a brachycephalic breed of dog. Unfortunately, around 67% of Pekingese have Brachycephalic Airway Obstruction Syndrome (BOAS).
BOAS is a horrible condition for a dog, and it makes it difficult for him to breathe even when at rest.
Especially on very hot days, a Peekapoo can be at risk of overheating, especially if they are very active or spend a lot of time in an area with little or no shade.
If you plan to take your Peekapoo on vacation to the beach, it may be a good idea to get them a good trim before heading out.
Also, bringing them some shade will help prevent any heat-related problems.
Only you can decide how you feel about the morality of buying a purebred or mixed breed dog that has respiratory problems.
If you come across a dog with a full muzzle, it may reduce the chances of your puppy having problems, but it won’t eliminate them completely.
What care does a Pekingese with Poodle cross need? Well, let’s take a look at all the care for your pet.
The Peekapoo is a dog that loves being outside. It does best in a house with a fenced yard, although it can also fit in an apartment. The Peekapoo should definitely live in an air-conditioned home, as they can quickly suffer from heat stroke thanks to that pedigree flat face. He shouldn’t be living outdoors or staying out unsupervised. Exercise is a must; expect at least one walk and a good play session in the garden every day. He has a high level of energy and if he doesn’t do daily activity he can become destructive.
The Peekapoo has double wool. The top coat can be straight or curly, or a combination of the two. His undercoat is short and dense.
Not only is the Peekapoo’s soft, wavy coat beautiful, it’s fairly easy to maintain overall. This is because they do not have an undercoat like some breeds. Therefore, they do not usually shed much.
But, your Peekapoo might have a coat more like its poodle parent than the Pekingese parent.
You should bathe your Peekapoo only when necessary, using a mild shampoo.
The Peekapoo’s coat varies from medium to long, but if you don’t want to get dirty from regular brushing, you can cut its hair.
In the hottest months of the summer, your Peekapoo can be much more comfortable if he gets his hair cut at least once a month.
Depending on the type of coat, this dog must either be brushed daily or periodically taken to a professional trimming procedure.
Particular attention should be paid to the oral hygiene of the dog, because this breed is prone to early tooth loss.
History of the breed
The Peekapoo was developed by crossing a complete Pekingese with a poodle.
The Pekingese and Poodle mix is one of the oldest ‘designer’ hybrid dogs, the first being bred in the 1950s.
Originating in the United States, these dogs were originally bred in an effort to create a low shedding dog suitable for people with allergies.
