Cairn Terrier / Pekingese Hybrid Dogs
The Pekarin is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Cairn Terrier and the Pekingese. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.
"This is our Pekarin named Harley at about 3 months old. Her mom is a Cairn Terrier and her dad is Pekingese. She is a very friendly dog and she runs up to everybody when we walk her. If someone stops to pet her she immediately rolls over for them to rub her belly. I walk her in the park for 2-3 miles every morning, but nothing seems to wear her out. She is always full of energy. She loves to chase squirrels and leaves that blow past her. She loves squeaky toys and Snausages. She even plays fetch if you throw a squeaky ball; she will bring it right back so you can throw it again. She doesn't like the water and hates to swim. She also doesn't like to share her food, especially with our cats. She can get very mean if they try to take her treats. She also has quite the underbite and her bottom teeth are always sticking out. She constantly needs to chew on something so we give her lots of bones. If she doesn't have a chew toy she will chew on the furniture or people's hands and feet. She is a great dog who loves to play and cuddle. Every time I take her for a walk people stop me to ask what kind of dog she is because everyone thinks she is the cutest thing."
