I dont know about your fur, are you a puppy? Are you a crossed breed? I would just wait it out, it'll probably grow. You're super cute so dont worry about it!

Oh yes, a short haired pekingese is called a Happa dog. It used to be a well recognized breed a century ago, but the show judges did not prefer them.

The Happa dog was a very short coated dog.

There is a Pekingese on the same page if you scroll down. Notice the Pek. looks like your dog, not like the show dog you linked. Selective breeding and warped many breed from the dog they were, and should be into (sorry), freaks of nature. I think your Pek is beautiful and I'm glad it looks like the historical Pekingese, not the puff ball breeders have turned it into.

The Happa is a short-coated Pekinese-type dog, the ancestor of the modern Pekingese (also spelled Pekingese), Shih-Tzu and Japanese Spaniel. It may also be the ancestor of the modern Pug, another "short-mouthed" breed that is believed to have first appeared in China. Such dogs were recorded in 663 BC and possibly as long ago as 1115 BC. Pug-type dogs arrived in Europe in the 17th Century through trade and became popular in the 18th Century and again in the late 19th Century.

According to “Dogs In Britain, A Description of All native Breeds and Most Foreign Breeds in Britain” by Clifford LB Hubbard, 1948: The native Japanese Spaniel [Chin Chin] is quite distinct from the Pekingese of China yet has about the same status. It is a Toy Dog closely related to Pekingese, Pugs and Happa Dogs.

Now the happa dogs well can you pal me and also look at my pics am I a happa dog my tail curls like a peak I dont look like a happa do I?shrugconfused
