Shep's Story...
Hi, my name is Shep. I am a mini, fawn, horsecoat Shar-Pei. I am a little shy and standoffish, but hey, I just got here. I‘ve been through a LOT lately. I came all the way from GA. Whew! That was a long ride. I get along great with the dogs that I live with. It‘s nice to have them around so they can show me stuff. I let my foster mom clean my ears and put meds in my eyes. I really don‘t mind at all, in fact, that ear massage felt pretty good. I am housebroken and already neutered. I had entropian and heartworm when I came in to rescue, but they have been taking really good care of me here.

Update 3/23/2010: Well, I can finally see now. I got my eyes done last Saturday. The nice vet lady told me to keep taking my heartworm preventative and get retested in 6 months for heartworm. I can only take Heartgard, but man, do I love them. I wonder why I wasn’t getting them before? Anyway, I am feeling much better because my mom is taking good care of me, but I still need my own furever home. If you are looking for a small, quiet boy, then look no further; and fill out an application and ask for Shep.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Shep, a Barnegat Light 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 Barnegat Light, or seeking a Shar Pei dog from a breeder in Barnegat Light.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Barnegat Light 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 Barnegat Light 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 Barnegat Light paves the way for another one to be saved.
