The Pekingese dog has small in size and long hair. Due to the abundance of hair, the dog seems large, but in fact, has a fragile constitution and short limbs. The muzzle is flattened, wrinkled, the eyes are bulging, the ears hang down on the sides of the head. The tail is short.
In ancient times, these dogs could be very small, so much so that they fit into the wide sleeves of Chinese robes. They were called “sleeve dogs” and weighed less than 2 kg.
