Sweetie's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, and good with kids.

Sweetie's Story...
Sweetie has had some adversities to over come but in spite of it has the most wonderful loving temperament. Sweetie had to have one of her rear legs amputated due to infection from an untreated abscess. It hasn’t slowed her down one bit & she gets around just as any other dog would. She loves to have her belly rubbed & is so gentle. Sweetie gave birth while at the shelter. We were able to get her to a safe & loving foster home until her forever home can be found. ***UPDATE*** May 3-Sweetie's coat has greatly improved & is one of the shiniest blacks you have seen. At the SharPei Nationals, she got along with all the other dogs & was fine in a large crowd.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sweetie, a Houston 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 Houston, or seeking a Shar Pei dog from a breeder in Houston.

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