As their name suggests, Peekapoo is a mixed breed dog whose parents are a purebred Pekingese and a purebred Toy or Miniature Poodle. Both the mom and dad have a lot of impressive traits, and their offspring will inherit a good portion of them- if not all.


Multigenerational breedings (Peekapoo to Peekapoo) are rare. If you're interested in a Peekapoo puppy, understand that his looks, size, and temperament aren't as predictable as those of purebreds, since you don't know which characteristics from each breed will show up in any given dog.

With their master, this dog is gentle and affectionate, they love nothing more than being by your side. However, that Pekingese guarding behavior
has not been lost. He will be alert and watchful. They will let you know if anything is out of place, or if they’ve just heard the neighbor leave for work.

They really aren’t too keen on strangers either, they are aloof with strangers and do like the sound of their own bark. They can be extremely aloof and independent when they want to be.

As they were bred to be loyal companions, they won’t deal well with being away from you. Expect barking, crying and destruction if you do.

Due to their small size, they aren’t generally suited to homes with bigger dogs and their distrusting demeanor doesn’t stand them in good stead making friends with smaller dogs either. Some do learn to live with other animals, if raised with them, however, most do not.
