Name and Breed: NELLY the Pek-A-Tese
Date of Birth: January 2, 2009
Place of Birth: Bangkok, Thailand

My Pek-A-Tese is very sweet, loving and playful dog. She's also great with my children. She's smart too but what amazes me most with her small size she eats like a big dog.

Having Nelly in my life is unintentional. It was Valentine's Day 2009 when I went out with my children just to check out a Pomeranian at the weekend market then I came across this cute little puppy... it was a love at first sight. I really don't want to own a puppy that time or in the near future because of my allergies and asthma but I just can't resist her charm without second thoughts I bought her.

The seller told me that she's a pure-breed Maltese with her age and size that time, I really can't see if she's a real Maltese and with the seller's assurance and papers I believe her but after a few weeks her features changed so I've decided to consult two veterinarians about her breed, they told me that the seller cheated me about her breed and that she is a Pek-A-Tese or Maltese Pekingese mix.

Am I disappointed? NO, I'M NOT because I just simply love her and no matter what kind of breed she got, I don't care because we've already got a connection even one of my acquaintance wants to buy her from me and they will triple the amount that I bought her but I refused because there's no amount of money can replace Nelly in my life. :)

Peke-a-tese - Pika

Pika, 3.5 years old

Our Peke-a-tese is so great that EVERYONE wants her... or one just like her. She is now my mother's "Grandpuppy" and is commonly called "Ragdoll Dog" (like the cat). She regularly just falls asleep and is relaxed and limp in just about any situation or position... even hanging from your hands. She is the most trusting dog, even to SMALL children! The only time we ever saw any aggression in her even once was when we gave her a REAL meat bone, and then tried to take it away from her because it was so messy. She gets along with our cats & even cuddles with them, even though the cats came a few years after Pika did. When we got her she came already potty trained... she was trained with wood shavings!

We bought her from a breeder who only had 2 litters of Peke-a-tese. We had to be on a waiting list for 6+ months and then had to drive 4 hours to get her. Her mother was a fawn & black purebred Pekingese and her father was a purebred Maltese. Pika is completely white with light cream spots here & there. Her litter mates were all white & cream as well. She is currently 4.5 years old and weighs just under 10 lbs. Her hair/fur is an even mix of Peke & Maltese... silky & straight on her head, ears, tail & underside & chest, and wavy with some wiry hairs along her back & sides. We keep her in a shaggy 'do and brush and comb her often. Her face can best be described as an even mix of Peke & Maltese as well. Her nose is not too long, not too short... although she does grunt & snore a little. She has big beautiful brown eyes. She does have a slight underbite and one crooked tooth, but it just adds to her character. You only see her teeth about 50% of the time, and even then only 3 show. She does have runny eyes at times, but we keep the tear stain areas trimmed. We did have extra eyelashes removed by our vet as well. Aside from tooth & eye problems she is a very healthy dog. She doesn't get an upset stomach if she eats something she's not supposed to, and LOVES to ride in the car (without getting sick). She is all muscle and very sturdy! She is longer than she is tall, but not by much. Her back is "flat" like a Peke's, and she has the feathery Peke feet. She does not waddle like a Pekingese at all, though and is quite fast.

We just love her to pieces & everyone who's ever met her says there will never be another Pika!!! I've tried to find another... one for me & one for my mother, but to no avail. My mother kept pedigreed Bichons all her life, and just lost one a couple months ago, and now is looking for a Peke-a-tese just like Pika. I joke and say that if we could afford it, we should have her cloned so that there WILL be another Pika. I wish more people would mix these two breeds, because in my opinion they are the cutest & sweetest dogs around! Of course, that could all be due to her upbringing I suppose.

Peke-a-tese - Daisy

by Christy
(Indiana )

Daisy is a Peke-a-tese and is the best puppy. She is very loyal, and loves to play hard. We have 3 teenage girls in our home, and they love to make over her.

She loves her daddy, and he plays all the time with her. She likes to be hand fed. I am not sure if this is a breed specific thing, or if I am creating a Malt a Monster!

Fifi is a three-year-old Pek-A-Tese born on Valentine's day. She is affectionate and playful, bossy, but also shy.

She's a great fetcher and is fiercely protective of her treats. What really makes her fun is that she loves to take showers, baths and splash in puddles.
