Chinese Shar-Pei Information
Talk about a unique looking dog. The Chinese Shar-Pei has many distinguishing features. Wrinkly, loose skin all over his body. Small eyes sunken in his head. Tiny triangular ears. A blue tongue. A scowling expression. A high, curled-up tail. It doesn’t get much more unique than this.
The Shar-Pei dates back to at least 200 B.C. during the Han Dynasty in China. Today, the breed is a calm, loyal dog who is devoted to his loved ones but standoff-ish to strangers. Quick and eager to learn, the Shar-Pei does well with training, which is very important for an independent breed like this.
