The Pekingese breed was developed in China.

Pekingese are compact dogs with long, flowing hair—truly “lion-like” in the way they look and how they carry themselves. Their wide flat heads have dark, slightly prominent (but not bulging) eyes, flat faces, dark wrinkled muzzles and hanging, heart-shaped ears. Their somewhat long bodies have fringes of hair hanging on either side and their arched tails are carried over their backs. They can come in almost any color. Overall, Pekingese are small but heavy boned, resulting in a dignified, rolling gait.

They can live as long as 15 years.
