The Peke-A-Pin breed is a cross breed developed from 50% Miniature Pinscher and 50% Pekingese dog breeds. They are brave, loyal, independent and affectionate in nature. They make great watchdogs but it requires a firm, consistent pack leader to make them balanced and happy dogs.
The breed's color comes in all colors although it would still depend on the colors that their predecessors have.
The Peke-A-Pin's coat is short, smooth and hard. Bathing and dry shampooing should be done as needed.
This breed is naturally courageous, independent while loyal and affectionate to their masters. As smart and lively dogs, they are highly trainable. Their humans should be the ideal pack leader as their behavior greatly depends on how the dog is treated. A dog who is not properly lead could lead to a dog with behavioral issues.
The Peke-A-Pin breed is pretty easy to groom as they are short coated dogs. Just make sure their nails are kept short, while their ears and eyes are cleaned regularly. Diet for this breed should be watched closely as they could be overfed resulting to an overweight dog.
The breed is very smart and is highly trainable due to it's eagerness to learn and please their owner. They should be socialized with other people and other dogs as part of their training. Housebreaking could be a bit difficult.
The Peke-A-Pins need their regular daily walks with emphasis that they are pack members by making them heel beside or behind the human walking them. Playing in an open secured area off leash is also enjoyable for them.
