Chinese Shar-pei

Chinese Shar-pei


Height: 18-20 inches

Weight: 35-55 lbs.

Life Span: 8-12 yrs.

Breed Group: Northern

Overview
The independent and sometimes stubborn shar-pei is devoted to its family, protective of its territory, and wary of human and animal strangers. Socialization and obedience classes at an early age are a must. The shar-pei does best with respectful children at least five years old. Confrontations with other animals can be a problem.

Appearance
The coat may be one of three lengths: horse (under 1/2 inch long), brush (1/2 to one inch long), or bear (over one inch long).

The coat is usually cream, fawn, red, or black, and the tongue either bluish-black or lavender (in light-coated dogs).

The loose skin, small ears, thick rounded muzzle, and curled high-set tail are also distinctive.

Grooming & Exercise Needs
Brush weekly to prevent skin infections, and examine skin folds and between digits regularly. The shar-pei needs daily brisk walks on a leash or a run in a secured area.

Origins
The shar-pei originated in China over 2,000 years ago and was bred for hunting and dogfighting.

Its thick, loose skin made it virtually impervious to an attacker's sharp teeth and claws, allowing the shar-pei to bite even while being bitten.

Special Alerts
The Chinese shar-pei is not suitable for inexperienced dog owners.

Breed-related health concerns: entropion, skin and ear infections, atopy, patellar luxation, hip and elbow dysplasia, hypothyroidism.
