BOSS is a small, 38 lb purebred Chinese Shar Pei. So, true to their nature BOSS is standoffish and aloof with strangers. He came to us via another rescue group and within about a week he became our new best friend. BOSS is loving, playful, & fun with us now. He's smart, house trained and good with the female Shar Pei he came in with. BOSS is neutered, UTD, he's had lower lid entropian surgery (so his eyes are clear and good now)
IT WILL TAKE TIME for him to bond with someone new - maybe as long as 2 weeks. Do you have the patience and skill set to allow him to settle into a new life and new routine? Do you have a fenced yard or way to potty him without handling him until he gets used to his new routine? If you do, please call us at 518-283-1251 and ask to speak with Dawn. Thank you.
