Pekingese - PART ONLY



The Tang Dynasty ruled what is now China from A.D. 618 to 906, and the Pekingese breed ruled right alongside the highest of Tang aristocrats with dignity and grace. Back then, Pekingese were known as ‘sleeve dogs’ because the Tang leaders kept them in their large, silk robe sleeves. They are also known as ‘lion dogs’ due to their long, feathered ‘manes’ of hair on their head and face that require brushing at least twice per week. Popularity for the Pekingese is still peaking today, enjoying international fame as a hugely popular toy breed.
