Rocky's Story...
Hi, I‘m Rocky! I‘m a one year old flowered Shar-Pei mix. I am very friendly, already housebroken and crate trained. I am a very active pup and do well with other dogs. I am having a good time with the other Pei here. I would do well in a home with another dog that I can play with and chase around. I have come a long way with my manners. My foster family and Pei brothers have spent a lot of time showing me how to be polite. I am maturing and turning into a perfect canine citizen! I will actually seek out affection now and will try to get in your lap if you let me. I love a good Nylabone too and will spend lots of time rolling around on the floor chewing on one.

Update 7/18/2011: I have been in my foster home for about a month now, and I am doing great. They are teaching me LOTS of new things here because I am so smart. The big guy has already taught me how to sit and shake. When I do what he asks, he gives me treats. Yum Yum! My leash manners have improved as well and after a few minutes, I am a really good walker. My mommy tells me when to “wait” for the cars before we cross the street. I LOVE going for my walks now, and I look forward to them every day. Do you need a walking partner?

As much as I love it here, I still want a home of my own, so please get your applications in and ask for me, Rocket dog! (That‘s what my mom calls me.)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rocky, 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.
