Pekingese aren’t the most common companion dogs. However, they appear more and more in mixed breeds. “Designer dogs” are becoming increasingly popular, and it’s no different for Pekingese mixed breeds.

Here are some of the most popular Pekingese mixed breeds:

Unsurprisingly, one of the most popular Pekingese mixed breeds is the Peekapoo – a mix between a Pekingese and a poodle. This intelligent, athletic hybrid varies considerably, just like most hybrids. Their fluffy charm makes them well-loved, but not all of them are incredibly fluffy.

These dogs come in various sizes, as well. Poodles come in many sizes, so it depends largely on the type of poodle used.

These loyal dogs require moderate exercise and plenty of grooming. They aren’t low-maintenance dogs by any definition.

2. Peka-a-Chon

A Peka-a-Chon is a mix between a Pekingese and Bichon Frise. These cuddly, fluffy dogs produce a cuddly mixed breed. While these dogs vary, just like any other hybrid, they tend to vary less, as their parent breeds are similar.

They’re often very friendly and cheerful, for instance. They can also be independent, though. Some are very stubborn, and many have problems with training. However, they tend to be well-behaved indoors, anyway.

These dogs are relatively low-maintenance. They do need some brushing, but keeping them clipped makes it much easier to keep them well-groomed.

3. Peke-a-Tese

These dogs look like the other mixed breeds on this list so far. They have a silky coat and tend to be very laidback. They love to hang out with their family and are very family-oriented. They’re human-oriented dogs, first and foremost.

They love to cuddle and are happiest whenever someone is in their lap. They thrive most on attention, but they are also somewhat playful.

Like most dogs on this list, you must brush them regularly to prevent tangles. Most must also be trimmed to prevent their fur from becoming exceptionally long.

4. Peagle

This breed can have shorter fur like a Beagle, but their fur also has a chance of being long in some spots. These spots can get tangled, so regular brushing is vital.

Peagles aren’t incredibly common. However, adding a Pekingese with a beagle makes them more laidback. They tend to have a strong sense of smell and are more prone to being lost due to their strong sense of smell. These dogs tend to wander off, so you should keep them on a leash or in a secured area.

These dogs often need less exercise and grooming than other dogs on this list. They require mental stimulation, though. Keeping them happy and well-behaved can be challenging, as you might expect.

5. Bostinese

Boston terriers are often called “personality dogs.” They’re incredibly spirited and tend to be on the active side. Their puppies can inherit this, as well.

Bostinese are incredibly lively, more so than most Pekingese. They tend to be pretty playful, but they do vary considerably. Temperament traits tend to have far more to do with how the dog is raised, not just their genes. However, these dogs tend to be more playful, so they’re less like lapdogs.

These loving companions love cuddling, but they can also be independent thinkers. They don’t like training all that much, but consistency can help them learn how to behave. These dogs are decently low-maintenance in terms of exercise, and their grooming needs vary considerably.

6. Peke-a-Pin

These dogs aren’t as popular as some others. However, they’re popular enough that they’re sometimes used to make mixed breeds with Pekingese.


Miniature Pinschers are very spirited and alert. They have tons of energy and tend to pass this on to their puppies, including the Peke-a-Pins. Of course, some dogs take more after their Pekingese parent and may be more laidback.

These dogs are very intelligent and loyal most of the time. They need moderate exercise, such as a walk or two each day. Their grooming needs vary. Sometimes, they require trimming, as their fur doesn’t tend to be very even. It may be long in some places and short in others.

With proper socialization, these dogs tend to be friendly. However, they can be aloof with strangers. They aren’t as friendly as you may think.

7. Peke-a-Pom

Pekingese and Pomeranians are pretty similar, so their puppies are less varied than other breeds. However, their fur can still vary, and they have high grooming needs.

You get an incredibly fluffy dog when you put a Pekingese and Pomeranian together. Their fur isn’t always the most even, as they are a mixed breed. However, they do tend to be on the fluffier side.

These dogs have a spunky personality, and they can also be independent. While they’re lapdogs and tend to be people-oriented, they aren’t the most trainable. They do need regular brushing, as well. Their luxurious coat tends to get tangled extremely easily due to its varied texture.

8. Puginese

Pugs are very popular companion dogs. However, they are also very unhealthy due to their shortened faces. Many people attempt to improve their health by mixing them with other breeds, including the Pekingese.

These dogs tend to be loving and affectionate. They absolutely love cuddles and playtime. They want to be wherever you are, whether you’re walking or hanging out on the couch.

Puginese are relatively low-maintenance. They don’t require much exercise or grooming, though some do need to be trimmed. Once again, it depends largely on the traits they inherit from their parents.

9. Yorkinese

This breed is typically small and very cuddly. They tend to be more active, so they’re better for families that are more active.

Yorkinese are extremely small. Yorkies are one of the smallest breeds out there, so they tend to pass on this small size to their puppies. Expect yorkinese to be pretty small, though their size does vary pretty widely.

These dogs also tend to be pretty active. They require regular mental and physical stimulation. Exercise is a must, though they’re small enough that you can easily exercise them indoors if required.

Many people report that these dogs can be yappy. They aren’t the most trainable, either. Consistency and patience are absolutely required to train them properly.

10. Cheeks

The Pekingese and Chihuahua are pretty popular to mix together, as they produce a very small, people-oriented companion. While their size can vary, they tend to be on the smaller size.

Their personality varies widely, though. They can be on the feistier side, or they can be more laid back. Often, they love people and are very loyal. With proper socialization, they can be friendly. However, some are exceptionally wary of strangers, especially if they are not socialized properly.

These dogs do require minimal exercise. However, they may not require as much brushing as some other mixed breeds.
