Pekingese Breed Information:
The Pekingese has a very interesting history throughout its native country of China. They were once regarded as a manifestation of the legendary Foo Dog that was believed to drive away spirits. Commoners were required to bow to them, and people were punished by death for stealing one. Whenever an emperor died, his Pekingese would be sacrificed so that it could travel with him to the afterlife. It wasn’t until 1860 that the Pekingese reached the West. When British and French troops invaded the Summer Palace in China during the Second Opium War, Chinese Imperial Guards were ordered to kill the Pekingese in order to prevent them from falling into the hands of "foreign devis."
