It is better to buyu a puppy from a breeder/ home stay because you can see it's parents. You can also if it was well treated before you got it and you can ask about what it was fed etc and ascertain it's health. Puppies from pet shops are likely to be from puppy mills where the dogs are kept mrerly for breeding and generating profit. As responsible pet owners, we are trying to stop puppy mills. The best way is NOT to buy from pet shops.
Please try to get you dog from a breeder. As for whether it is better to have a purebred dog, it depends on you. I have a mongrel (found in a street) and a Maltese (from a breeder). Each are wonderful but the Maltese is higher in maintainance while the mongrel is relatively cheaper. You are also able to predict size and temperament to a certain extent when you get a pedigree while the mongrels can be anything from shy to boiterous, timid to dominant.
Good luck in choosing a dog. I don't know any Pekingese breeders but I know that you shound definitely avoid pet shops. Alicia Ling Horsley
