Peke A Tese Build Information

The Peke-A-Tese is the cross between the Pekingese and the Maltese breeds. It is a small cross breed that weighs between seven and 12 pounds when fully grown. The Peke-A-Tese has a thick coat of long, straight fur that should be brushed daily to avoid matting and tangling. Despite its thick coat, the Peke-A-Tese will shed a negligible amount, making them good pets for owners with allergies or who simply don't like to vacuum dog hair constantly.
