Albino Pekingese – Read Before You Get One!


Albino pekingese is rare but if you want one, you should first know all the facts about them! There are several health issues that are associated with albinism, including blindness or sensitivity to the sun eye concerns, skeletal malformations, skin cancer, inner ear deformities, intestinal concerns and low IQ. All of the albino creatures have these misfortune, however. Taking care of an albino pekingese should only be done by a very knowledgeable handler who knows the genetic background of the creature.

Albino Pekingese just look the same with the normal ones except for the fact that they lack melanin (pigmentation). Theirs appear to be somewhat pink with cream or white colored coats. There are freckles or moles on their skin, some may be more pigmented than the others as they don’t come uniformly.

In terms of behavior, albinism can affect them. Studies show that albino dogs have a difficulty in learning new tricks/tasks and suffer from aggression and fearfulness. Thus, making an albino animal less suitable in being a pet or that their owners should take special care on their albino pekingese.

Albino Pekingese

The American Kennel Club and several other groups recording of race do not register dogs Pekingese with albinism. The condition is considered a disorder, and albino dogs are not allowed in AKC shows. The Kennel Club UK also prohibits Pekinese dogs with albinism. While albino Pekingese can be interesting, they can not compete formally in most shows.

Albinism can also influence behavior in dogs. According to the facts about Albino Dobermans site, albino dogs may have difficulty learning new tasks and may suffer from fear and aggression. This can make an animal albino less suitable as a pet, or it can require owners to take special precautions with their Pekinese albinos.

Several health issues have been connected to albinism, however not all albino animals suffer from such conditions. Breeding an albino pekingese should only be done with the utmost care and knowledge on the dog’s genetic background.

Mistaken Belief:

It is a common mistake to pressume all white pekingese for an albino, however there are differences. An all-white peke have black mouths and noses, plus black skin around their eyes while albinos have pink skin in the said parts. Majority of the people think that to be an albino animal, they should have red eyes however mammals having this condition usually have light brown or blue eyes instead.

Albino pekingese may be less of a house pet but like their normal cousins, they too prove to be a wonderful companion. However, as a handler of a dog that has a unique condition, you should also do your best to provide the best care for them. Knowing their genetic background is one way for you to learn how to meet with their unique rearing up.
