Facts about Pompei

  • Breed: Shar Pei
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
This handsome boy is a purebred horsecoat named Pompei. During his 5 years, he's survived abandonment, starvation, and heartworms to become a gentle, dignified gentleman. He weighs about 50 lbs, is neutered, current on vaccinations, and has completed his heartworm treatment. Although always polite, he's a bit shy around new people until they've earned his trust. He's wonderful around other dogs! At the boarding home where he stayed during his convalescence, he was so calm around other dogs that he became their "temperament tester."

Pompei has a lot of love to give, and needs a steady home full of belly rubs where he can feel secure and part of the family. He likes playing with toys, balls, and children. He would especially enjoy a canine companion.

About North American Shar Pei Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

North American Shar Pei Rescue was established to assist and augment the rescue efforts of the Chinese Shar Pei Club of America Inc., as well as our Canadian neighbors to the North. NASPR is a non-profit 501C Corporation. We are an all volunteer organization and depend on your support to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome the hundreds of Shar-Pei in need each year. If you can not adopt at this time, please consider becoming a volunteer, foster or become a guardian angel (financial sponsor) for one of our many dogs in need.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Most of our Shar-Pei are in volunteer foster homes throughout Texas, Louisiana & Oklahoma. We also have a temporary holding facility where some of our Shar-Pei are housed while undergoing medical treatment or waiting for a foster or forever home. We do hold adoption events at Petsmart, Petco and other locations throughout the Southwest Region (Texas/Louisiana/Oklahoma) where some of our Shar-Pei that are ready for adoption can be seen.

Our Adoption Process...

Please complete the ONLINE ADOPTION APPLICATION form located at Your application will be forwarded to the nearest volunteer. We do some basic checks and will then contact you to set up a time for one of our representatives to come to your home and visit. This gives us a better idea of the type of Shar-Pei that would work best with your family and of course be sure that it would be a safe environment. At that time, or shortly thereafter, we could discuss the dogs that we think might work best for you. We have had tremendous success in making happy placements. We ask a minimum adoption fee/donation of $250 to help defer the costs of medical and miscellaneous expenses incurred but it can vary depending on the dogs individual needs/expenses. All dogs are placed spayed/neutered and current on all vaccinations.
