Shar-Pei

Shar-Peis are calm, independent, loyal and affectionate to their family.

About the Shar-Pei

With wrinkles on the skull, folds of skin on the body, small ears and a muzzle reminiscent of a hippo’s, this is a breed that sparks intrigue.

Though intensely loyal to their owners, Shar-Peis can be quite reserved with strangers and have a natural instinct to guard their home and family.
