Information and Pictures

Front side view - Two wiry-looking, tan with white Peka-A-West puppies are sitting on a rug next to each other and looking at the camera. The forward most puppy is tilting its head to the left.

"These are my hybrid puppies. The darker face one is named Jack Jr. or JJ for short. The other one is named Tiger Jr. and Jr. for short. They are a mixed breed of Westie white hair terrier and Pekingese. They are 11 weeks old. Brindle, black and white in color. Flat ears, pointed head and a flat nose. They have long curly hair. They are almost same in color except one has a little darker face than the other one. They love to play together and want the same toys. They drink water together, eat together and sleep together. They love to be held and lie on your shoulder to sleep. They are well behaved and go outside to potty. They are so sweet and adorable together and it’s a pleasure to have them."

Description

The Peka-A-West is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Pekingese and the Westie. 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.
