Is the Chihuahua / Pekingese Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Cheeks; Pekechi

The basics:
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.

The first generation Pekachi is a cross between a pure Pekingese and a pure Chihuahua, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. The purpose of this so-called designer cross is to create a cute, apartment-sized pet practical for many families.

Appearance / health:
While all mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, with the Cheek you can expect a tiny, cute toy-sized animal.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog, owners report that the Pekachi can be a tiny terror if not properly trained and socialized. The Chihuahua DNA can result in a yappy dog if you don't discourage problem barking. On the plus side, they can make wonderful watchdogs for even the smallest apartment.
