The Chinese Shar Pei


If you have never seen a Shar Pei before, the first impression might just as well be that of a kind, though independent, even arrogant clodhopper. Indeed, these dogs are often arrogant with strangers. And of course, this makes people think that Shar Pei is smarter than it looks. But under the mask of arrogance and indifference hides a mischievous soul of a natural-born clown. It is in domestic surroundings that these dogs reveal their true character, their numerous faces and aspects of mood. Each of them is truly individual and a great wonder to discover. This is what makes Shar Pei so capable of true and loyal friendship unlike many other pets. Talking about the character of these teddy bears, first and foremost they are calm, independent and devoted to the family. Moreover, these dogs are very enduring, noble and wise. Shar Pei truly enjoys human company, especially children - they can play with them for hours and stand any liberties the children might take. Shar Pei is extremely patient and discreet. They are never aggressive without an obvious cause. These reflexive animals should be given an opportunity to assess the situation and use their own discretion when it comes to action. Amazingly sharp sight allows keeping everything under control - at all times. Although historically these dogs were meant for protecting property, Shar Pei is no worse a bodyguard than Mastiff. These energetic and fast-running dogs have more than fair chances of protecting human life against any potential threat. All our staff is deeply in love with these noble animals that never stop amazing us. We do hope to keep the continuity of our Shar Pei breeding tradition and welcome you all to our big and friendly family!
