These dogs take on the temperament of both Pekingese and Maltese. They are loyal and protective little dogs.
Some are very opinionated; which may make them difficult to train. You may also find them difficult to housebreak,
as with any smaller dog.
They are great dogs for apartment life, as they usually aren't that active indoors.
These dogs do fine with children and other dogs as long as they are properly socialized when they are puppies.
Most people find them to have a courageous and affectionate personality.
