4-month-old female Peke-A-Pin puppy—her owner says, "At four months old she is weighing about 3 lbs. Mom was a Pekingese and dad was a Miniature Pinscher. She is fun, feisty and a joy to have around!"
The Peke-A-Pin is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Pekingese and the Miniature Pinscher. 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. This hybrid is recognized by the American Canine Hybrid Club. 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.
