WHEN YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A SLEEVE PEKINGESE, YOU NEED TO LOOK FOR THE BODY SIZE YOU WANT AND NOT THE WEIGHT.  ONE THING FOLKS NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE PEKINGESE IS THAT THEY HAVE A HEAVIER BONE STRUCTURE THAN OTHER TINY BREEDS, SO WEIGHT IN NOT NECESSARILY WHAT WILL MAKE A SLEEVE PEKE A SLEEVE.  A 5LB. PEKINGESE IS MUCH SMALLER THAN A 5LB. YORKIE.  SOME PEKINGESE DEPENDING ON BODY STYLE CAN HAVE THE TINY BONE STUCTURE WHICH WILL MAKE THEM WEIGH LESS, BUT CAN ACTUALLY BE LARGER IN SIZE THAN A TINY 7-8LB SLEEVE WITH HEAVY BONE STRUCTURE.  LET ME SHOW YOU WHAT I MEAN BELOW. 

FRONT 3 ARE LEFT TO RIGHT CHINA DOLL, FRECKLES AND TEA,  ALL SLEEVES.  CHINA STAYED 5LBS. FOR SEVERAL YEARS, AND AS TIME WENT ON SHE EVENTUALLY WEIGHED OUT AT 8LBS.   FRECKLES WAS 6 1/2LBS. AND EVENTUALLY THICKENED UP TO 7 1/2LBS. AND EVEN SMALLER BONED THAN CHINA, BUT THE SAME SIZE, AND TEA ON THE END WAS HEAVIEST OF ALL AT 8LBS.  

SKY WALKER STOOD MUCH TALLER AND IS LONGER BODIED THAN CHINA ALTHOUGH HE WEIGHED ONLY 7LBS.  WHILE CHINA, FRECKLES AND TEA ALL EVENTUALLY OUT WEIGHED HIM YET WERE SMALLER IN BODY SIZE. 

SOPHIE HAS THE WIDE COBBY BODY WITH THE HEAVY BONE STRUCTURE AND YET SHE IS VERY TINY IN SIZE, JUST A LITTLE LARGER THAN CHINA, YET SOPHIE WEIGHED NEARLY 10LBS. JUST DUE TO HER BONE STRUCTURE AND BODY STYLE.  SEE HER WIDE FRAME, FAT WIDE FEET, ETC.  THESE STYLES LEAD TO THE WEIGHT FACTOR, NOT THE SIZE. 

PRADA WAS NEARLY 4 MONTHS OLD IN THIS PICTURE AND WAS OF VERY TINY BONE STRUCTURE AND NOT EVEN 2LBS,  YET BELOW:

MEI MEI'S LITTLE 5 WEEK OLD PUPPY WITH THE COBBY BODY ALREADY WEIGHED OVER TWO POUNDS....SEE?

     SO FOLKS,  WHEN LOOKING FOR A SLEEVE PEKINGESE, YOU NEED TO DECIDE WHAT SIZE YOU WANT YOUR PEKE TO BE WHEN GROWN, AND NOT HOW MUCH HE/SHE WILL WEIGH,  FOR IT IS A FACT THAT A TINY 8 POUND SLEEVE CAN ACTUALLY BE MUCH SMALLER IN BODY SIZE THAN A LARGER BUT SMALLER BONED, AND LIGHTER WEIGHT 6-7LB. ADULT.   FOR THESE OBVIOUS REASONS, WE NEVER WILL GUARANTEE A CERTIAN WEIGHT AS AN ADULT WHEN PURCHASING A PUPPY.  WE WILL LET YOU KNOW WHAT SIZE WE EXPECT THE DOG TO BE, WHETHER SLEEVE SIZE, SMALL TOY/BOARDERLINE SLEEVE, OR TOY,  JUST FROM NEARLY 4 DECADES OF RAISING THESE LITTLE ANGELS.  ALSO IN MOST CASES, IF YOU ARE PICKING A TEENY TINY PUPPY THAT IS POTENTIAL SLEEVE AND VERY TINY AND BABYISH,  YOU WILL SURELY HAVE TO WAIT AN EXTRA FEW WEEKS TO POSSIBLY EVEN A FEW MONTHS LONGER TO GET YOUR PUPPY DUE TO IT'S TINY AND FRAGILE SIZE AND NATURE.  AGAIN, OTHER TINY BREEDS ARE READY TO GO TO THEIR NEW HOMES MUCH SOONER THAN THE TINY PEKINGESE ARE:

SLEEVE'S ARE DIFFERENT IN MANY WAYS FROM OTHER PEKINGESE.  THEY ARE VERY HUMAN, AND EMOTIONAL, AND YOU CANNOT HELP TO TOTALLY LOVE THEM AND BE PROTECTIVE OVER THEM.  THEY ARE MORE BABYISH AND THEY STAY MORE BABYISH THEIR ENTIRE LIFE.  THEY SEEM TO BE AWARE OF THEIR SMALL SIZE AND ARE MORE AFRAID OF SMALL CHILDREN RUNNING AROUND, OR LOUD AND VERY ACTIVE HOUSEHOLDS.  THEY WILL STRESS OUT AND TRY TO HIDE, AND CAN EVEN GET SICK FROM THE STRESS.  SLEEVE PEKINGESE ARE NOT LIKE OTHER TINY DOG BREEDS.  THE TINY TEACUP CHIHUAHUA'S, POMS, POODLES ETC. ARE MUCH MORE HARDY AND FAMILY ORIENTATED,  BUT THE SLEEVE PEKES ARE MOST COMFORTABLE AND COMPATABLE WITH AN ADULT FAMILY, AND ALSO DO WELL WITH RESPONSIBLE TEENS OR YOUNG ADULTS,  BUT NEVER WITH CHILDREN, ESPECIALLY TODDLER AGE.  ALSO TOO MANY OTHER ANIMALS IN THE HOME, OR LARGER AND VERY PLAYFUL OR AGGRESSIVE PUPPIES/DOGS ETC, DO NOT WORK WELL WITH THESE TINY SLEEVES.   SLEEVE PEKINGESE SHOULD NEVER BE BRED AS THEY CAN DIE EVEN WHILE CARRYING THIER LITTER, AND NOT JUST IN BIRTHING.  IF YOU ARE SOMEONE HOPING TO BREED SLEEVE PEKINGESE, YOU NEED TO PURCHASE A LARGER AND LONGER BODY SIZED TOY PEKINGESE THAT CARRIES THE SLEEVE BLOODLINE.  IF YOU CHOOSE A MALE SLEEVE, HE WILL MOST LIKELY NEED TO BE ARTIFICALLY INSEMENATED TO YOUR LARGER FEMALE.  NEVER THINK BECAUSE YOU HAVE BOTH A MALE AND FEMALE SLEEVE THAT IT IS SAFE TO BREED THEM, AS IN THEIR BACKGROUND BLOODLINE THERE ARE SURELY LARGER PEKINGESE, AND IT IS AN EXCELLENT CHANCE THAT YOUR FEMALE WILL CARRY SOME OF THE LARGER PUPPIES.   I HAVE HAD SMALL TOY FEMALES BRED TO SMALL TOY MALES GIVE BIRTH AT TIMES TO MONSTER SIZE PUPPIES,  THROW BACKS FROM THEIR BLOODLINES THROUGHOUT THEIR HISTORY.  VERY SCARY AND DANGEROUS.  THINK CAREFULLY ABOUT YOUR FAMILY SITUATION AND WHY YOU WANT A SLEEVE SIZE PEKINGESE,  AS YOU DO NOT WANT TO GET A DOG THAT WILL NOT WORK OUT AND BE ABLE TO BE A PART OF YOUR DAILY FAMILY LIFE.  SINGLES, ADULTS, RETIRED, SENIORS, AND EVEN COLLEGE STUDENTS ARE GREAT OPTIONS FOR A SLEEVE PEKE,  BUT LARGER FAMILIES, THOSE WITH MANY DOGS OR PETS, THOSE WHO WORK LONG HOURS AND NEED TO LEAVE THE DOG ALONE MOST OF THE TIME, ETC. ARE NOT GOOD OPTIONS FOR A SLEEVE PEKE WHERE SEVERAL OTHER TINY BREEDS WOULD WORK OUT MUCH BETTER. FEEL FREE TO E-MAIL ME IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS AT tpekes4u@aol.com
