Shar Pei General Appearance:

The Chinese Shar Pei is a medium dog with a compact body, standing 18 to 20 inches tall and weighing 45 to 60 pounds. They are known for their unique appearance, which features a large head, loose skin, a curled tail, and a “hippopotamus” muzzle!

Chinese Shar Pei puppies are covered in wrinkles, which spread out as they mature. The adult Chinese Shar Pei dog may only have wrinkles on the head, neck, and withers. Their coat is short and is generally solid-colored. Colors include black, blue, cream, and sable, among others, and some Chinese Shar Pei dogs have a black mask!

Shar Pei Temperament:

The Chinese Shar Pei is a regal, intelligent, and occasionally standoffish dog. They aren’t always friendly toward strangers because of their natural guarding instinct, but they are fiercely loyal with their family.

Socialize and train Chinese Shar Pei puppies in order to help them adjust to the presence of unfamiliar people and animals. Because Chinese Shar Peis are highly intelligent, they require training and daily exercise. While this breed may be challenging and occasionally stubborn, their compassionate, loving nature can make the Chinese Shar Pei a wonderful companion. Watch out — this pooch can be a Velcro dog, and they may follow you from room to room!
