Mercedes's Story...
Meet the beautiful Mercedes! Mercedes is a 6 year old female Miniature Shar-Pei. She is naturally very scared of shelter life since she was in a home environment her entire life. When you approach Mercedes and talk to you, she will come up to you and wag her little tail. She has a very sweet, calm temperament that you will instantly fall in love with. Not to mention the cutest little face that the photos and even the video do not do justice. You MUST meet her in person. She arrived at the shelter with Harley a 6 year old female Chiweenie (Chihuahua/Dachshund), who she lived with. They do get along well, as a matter of fact they are sharing a kennel, however do not necessarily need to be adopted together. If someone did want to adopt both Mercedes and Harley, there would be a special adoption fee.

Mercedes estimated birth date (by a veterinarian) is 4/20/09

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mercedes, a Marseilles 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 Marseilles, or seeking a Shar Pei dog from a breeder in Marseilles.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Marseilles 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 Marseilles 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 Marseilles paves the way for another one to be saved.
