The Peekapoo is a hybrid breed of dog that is a cross between the Pekingese and the Poodle. This breed has become increasingly popular in recent years due to its small size, friendly personality, and low-maintenance grooming needs. The Peekapoo is an ideal pet for those looking for a loyal companion that will fit into their lifestyle.

Appearance: The Peekapoo has a unique look that combines the features of both its parent breeds. It typically has a long, silky coat with wavy or curly fur, and it may have either short or long ears depending on which parent breed it takes after more closely. Its eyes are usually dark brown or black, and its muzzle is usually short and pointed like the Pekingese’s.

Lifespan, Size, Weight & Colors: The average lifespan of the Peekapoo is between 10-15 years. They typically weigh between 5-20 pounds when fully grown and stand at around 8-14 inches tall at the shoulder. They come in a variety of colors including white, cream, black, brown, red and silver.

Personality: The Peekapoo is an intelligent breed with an outgoing personality that loves to be around people. They are very affectionate towards their owners and enjoy being part of family activities such as playing fetch or going for walks together. They can also be quite independent at times but still remain loyal to their owners no matter what they do or where they go!

Friendliness: The Peekapoo is generally friendly with other dogs as well as children and other animals if socialized properly from an early age. However they can be wary of strangers so it’s important to introduce them slowly to new people in order to ensure they feel comfortable around them before allowing them too close contact with them.

Temperament: The Peekapoo has a gentle temperament which makes them great companions for families with children as well as elderly people who need some extra love in their lives! They are also quite active so regular exercise will help keep them healthy both physically and mentally while also helping prevent any behavioral issues from developing over time due to boredom or lack of stimulation from their environment .

Health: As with all breeds there are certain health issues associated with this particular hybrid such as eye problems due to its small size; hip dysplasia; patellar luxation; heart disease; skin allergies; ear infections; obesity; dental problems; hypoglycemia (low blood sugar); epilepsy; tracheal collapse (collapsing windpipe); Von Willebrand’s Disease (a bleeding disorder); luxating patellas (kneecaps slipping out of place) ;and bloat (gastric torsion). Regular vet checkups should help identify any potential health issues early on so that treatment can begin immediately if necessary .

Adaptability Level & Benefits: The adaptability level of this breed varies depending on each individual dog but overall they tend to do well in most environments provided there’s plenty of love given by their owners! Some benefits associated with owning this type of dog include being low maintenance when it comes to grooming needs since they don’t require much brushing or bathing compared to other breeds ;they make great watchdogs since they bark when someone approaches your home ;and lastly because they are small enough you can take them almost anywhere you go without having too much trouble carrying them around!


The Peekapoo is a hybrid dog, created by crossing a Pekingese with a Toy or Miniature Poodle. The Peekapoo was first bred in the United States in the 1950s. The Peekapoo is recognized by the American Canine Hybrid Club and the International Designer Canine Registry, but is not recognized by the American Kennel Club.

The Peekapoo was created to be a low-shedding, hypoallergenic companion dog. The Peekapoo is an intelligent breed that is easily trained. They are good with children and other pets. Peekapoos are active dogs that enjoy walks and playtime, but they are just as content to cuddle on the couch.

The history of the Peekapoo breed is relatively short. The breed was created in the United States in the 1950s by crossing a Pekingese with a Toy or Miniature Poodle. The resulting hybrid was bred for its low-shedding, hypoallergenic coat and its companionship qualities.

The Peekapoo breed nearly became extinct in the 1970s when interest in designer dogs waned. However, the breed has experienced a resurgence in popularity in recent years. There are now several thousand Peekapoos registered with various kennel clubs and registries around the world.

The ancestry of the Peekapoo is 50% Pekingese and 50% Toy or Miniature Poodle. The exact origins of the Pekingese are unknown, but it is thought to be one of oldest breeds of domesticated dogs, dating back over two thousand years ago to ancient China. The Toy or Miniature Poodle also has ancient origins, dating back to 15th century Germany where they were bred as water dogs.

The Peekapoo was first recognized as a distinct breed by the American Canine Hybrid Club in 2006. In 2010, they were also recognized by the International Designer Canine Registry. However, they are not yet recognized by major kennel clubs such as the American Kennel Club or United Kennel Club
