We bought Trey from a breeder here in town. He was so little, he fit in both my hands. He got really sick about a month after we got him and thought he was going to die as he wouldn't eat or drink anything. I had to bottle feed him for a couple of weeks and then "poof" he got well. The vet never figured out what was wrong with him. However, he now weighs in at 17 lbs and is way taller than most Pekingese, but he is not fat. He's slowing down now that he is older but still loves to play fetch with his "tug toy".
