  • Sex: Male
Ever met one of those dogs that everyone just gravitates towards? If not, you have now!
Cricket is a super awesome shar pei who, based on his current condition, has probably seen easier days, but that does not get him down. He would much rather talk about the present. Cricket appears to be blind, so how he found himself as a stray and how far he actually got is anyone's guess. Once he realizes you are there (usually by nudging you with his face and/or bumping into your leg) his little tail immediately gives a quick wag and he gently kisses your hand (and is happy to eat any treats he may find in said hand). Cricket's life on the streets left his coat a bit sparse and his skin a bit dry, but hopefully some good quality food and supplements will start to heal that right up. He has also gotten a full spa treatment with bath and is already feeling (and smelling) a bit better.
Cricket appears to be housebroken, although we would certainly expect he will have a few accidents as he gets used to a new place and schedule, knows some commands (which he is happy to show off to you) and gets along well with other dogs.
Anyone looking for a special dog who lives in the moment and is more concerned about quality of time rather than quantity would be lucky to cross paths with Cricket.
