About the Peekapoo
The Peekapoo, sometimes called a Pekeapoo, is a hybrid dog breed that originated in the United States during the 1950s. By definition, a Peekapoo is a purebred Poodle mixed with a purebred Pekingese, though it can be any combination of the two breeds. Like other designer breeds, the Peekapoo has become very popular in recent years.
There are some breeders that now use a Peekapoo crossed back to a Toy Poodle, resulting in an even smaller hybrid dog.(Description of a Peekapoo Dog)Peekapoos are quite petite, ranging from 5-10 lbs. They are slightly smaller than their cousin the Cockapoo. Peekapoos can be silver, black, white or apricot. Like Poodles, they have a singlecoat and little dander, making them perfect for people who have allergies. The coat has a soft and downy texture like cotton. It should be brushed several times a week and combed also.Brushing is easier if the fur is kept short; regular clipping also keeps the Peekapoo’s appearance from becoming unkempt. This breed is non shedding
Peekapoos tend to be docile and well mannered. They are very loyal and will sometimes pick one person as their favorite. They are usually well behaved around kids and other pets, making them a great family dog. When Peekapoos are trained and cared for properly, they display virtually no aggression towards strangers. Most are playful and take pleasure in performing tricks. Compared to many other breeds, Peekapoos do not require a lot of exercise. However, they do enjoy a short walk every now and then.
Peekapoo Health InformationSimilar to other hybrid dogs, Peekapoos tend to be healthier than most purebreds.
