Peek-A-Pom Breed Information


Breed Group: Not AKC Recognized

Weight: 3-10 lbs

Height: 6-12 inches

Color(s): Variety of colors that include fawn, black, white, cream; may be solid or sabled

Overview

The Peekapom, also called the Pominese, is created by the crossing of two breeds: Pekingese and Pomeranian. They are commonly referred to as "designer dogs" and are not as popular as many of the other crosses.

Character

The ideal Peekapom should be well-proportioned, cobby, and sturdy. They should possess an intelligent and lively expression and be hardy in appearance.

Temperament

Affectionate, brave, and loyal, the Peekapom is outgoing and confident. They do not do well if left alone for extended periods of time. Boredom and loneliness will lead to destructive behavior and incessant barking. They do best in homes with older, considerate, well-mannered children. The Peekapom does well with dogs and non-canine pets they have been raised with. They are wary and suspicious of strangers and are quick to alert their family to visitors or out of the ordinary sounds.

Care

Daily brushing is recommended to prevent matting and tangling for the Peekapom. Bathing should be done when necessary; dry shampooing will suffice. Dental hygiene is important to prevent early tooth loss. They may be prone to such health issues as eye problems, luxating patella, hip dysplasia, epilepsy, and hypoglycemia.

Coat

The Peekapom has a double coat. The outer coat is long and profuse. The under coat is short and dense.

Training

Early socialization and obedience are recommended. The Peekapom may be willful, stubborn, and difficult to housebreak. They will not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. Training must be done with firmness, fairness, patience, and consistency.

Activity

The Peekapom is suited for apartment living. They are relatively active indoors. Peekapom's enjoy family play sessions, securely leashed walks, and off-lead play time in a fenced yard.
