Max's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, not good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Max's Story...
Max is a very handsome, happy, sweet and sensitive, five-year-old, 55-pound, purebred Shar Pei looking for a loving guardian.

A neighbor noticed Max had been chained to a dog house for most of his young life and convinced his family to give him up to rescue.

Max is a dog with good energy who loves all the attention he can get. Since he grew up as a solitary dog without exposure to many people, other animals and children, he’s best in a home with dog-loving adults and no other pets. While Max keeps his kennel clean, he may need a refresher course in housebreaking when he gets a chance to live in a real home.

Max doesn’t know any formal commands yet, but he is extremely food-motivated and smart enough to learn. He is now well-groomed and actually enjoys being bathed and pampered.

Max is healthy, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, de-wormed, tested negative for heartworm, on monthly heartworm preventative and micro-chipped. His adoption fee of $250 benefits the rescued dogs of We Luv Paws. To meet and possibly adopt him, you can contact their foster mom Jen at or 630-553-7829. He is living in a kennel Plano, Illinois.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Max, a Chicago Shar Pei dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shar Pei for sale in Chicago, or seeking a Shar Pei dog from a breeder in Chicago.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Chicago already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Chicago breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Shar Pei breeders who help with Shar Pei rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chicago paves the way for another one to be saved.
