The Peekapoo is one of the oldest hybrid, or designer, breeds. It was developed in the 1950s by crossing a Pekingese with a miniature or toy poodle. The aim was to produce a dog that would not have a lot of hair and would be suitable for people with allergies. The Peekapoo gained popularity in the early 1960s, about the same time as the Cockapoo, and despite the Peekapoo’s popularity, there is no breed club. The hybrid has remained largely a first generation crossbreed; the parents are usually Pekingese and Poodles. There is no indication that multi-generational breeding will occur, but never say never.Because of its small, lap-friendly size and sweetly affectionate temperament, the Peekapoo has maintained a large following.
