Atari Press – The Pekingese dog or also known as the Peking dog is related to the Lamaists of Buddhism in China. Where the lion is considered a symbol of the glory or majesty of Buddhism. And this Pekingese dog is a miniature of the lion itself. Foo’s dogs were then born with a resemblance to a lion. From there, this dog was also known as the lion dog.
Through the use of genetic technology, scientists have shown that the existence of the Pekingese dog is a very ancient type of dog. This dog has been around for about 5,000 years. Where at this time it also coincided with the appearance of the oldest breed of dog called Tibetan or Great Dane in parts of Europe. Until about 2000 years ago, this dog became a god as the noblest dog, where this dog was only allowed to stay in a luxurious palace in the last generation. Ordinary people when they see this dog are forced to squat. And if there are people who steal this type of dog, that person will be executed immediately.
At that time, this Pekingese dog was a symbol of luxury and of the noble lineage of its owner. For more than 2000 years, the Pekingese dog has been extremely rare. This dog was not known to have been in the West until 1860, as it was learned when the British Army attacked Beijing Palace. This army found five Pekingese dogs (which are only mentioned in the legend) and then brought them back to England. The two dogs were also given to the Duke of Wellington, and two more were also given to the Duke of Richmond and Gordon. And the rest was then given to Queen Victoria and the dog was called Looty.
At that time, this type of dog was very rare, so many people tried to smuggle it out of China. It was therefore only in the 1890s (when China was invaded by the West) that the New Pekingese were brought in large numbers to Europe because they would serve as very precious gifts to the nobility of the time. This type of dog has been widely developed and widely adopted in all walks of life in all parts of the world.
