Hi name is Sharpie (Shar-pay). Get it? “Shar-pie” because I am a Shar Pei. Not a great joke, but I like to start my pitch with something funny.

As I said, I am Sharpie and I am the “wrinkled face” dog. And I am very “sharp.” No pun intended, Shar Pei’s are intelligent, playful, active, brave and can be dominant if you don’t take the leadership role (translate to stubborn). I’m not mean; I just take on the leadership role. And as unusual as I look, I was originally bred as a working dog—you know, herding, hunting, tracking. I know, I know, I do sound like a great dog, and I am! I am about 3-years old, I weigh 40 pounds and I love all humans, big and small. And even when I was rescued from the animal shelter, I was gentle and sweet with everyone. I get along great with other dogs, small and large, and dog-savvy cats are probably okay with a slight BUT—if a cat runs, I—must—chase—it!

I am up to date with all my shots and I will be neutered before I am adopted. The only small thing is...the vets says I have heart worms, but I have the very lowest kind, stage 1.  I am starting my treatment soon, and then I will be as good as new for you to adopt me. And it is a good thing I am house trained because I don’t like crates! I get anxious and bark.

But I love to snuggle and play and I would love a fenced yard so I can romp. And if you have another dog to play with me...I would be in heaven.  So, fill out an adoption application at the address below and come meet me!

An Adoption Application for this dog can be found and submitted online.
