Pekingese

a very small, thickset dog with a large head, very short nose, prominent eyes and pendulous ears. The coat is long, straight and profuse over the body, particularly around the neck where it forms a 'mane', and on the tail, which is carried over the back. The breed is predisposed to distichiasis, hemivertebrae, intervertebral disk disease, proptosis, central corneal ulceration, facial fold pyoderma and anomalies of the upper respiratory tract.
