Pompei's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Pompei's Story...
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.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Pompei, 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.
