Sam's Story...
Hi, My name is Sam. I got saved by a nice lady, from the Florida Shar-pei Rescue, when I was taken away from my peoples. I was being starved, and was so very hungry, had fleas and other bugs too.

The nice people at the Naples shelter took me away from those people. They took care of me, gave me some shots, and something called "worm medicine". It wasn't to bad. They did something called a neuter. I'm not sure what that is, but I didn't feel so good "back there", for a few days. They said I have "light heartworms". That happened cause I was left outside and got bit by Mosquitoes. I am being treated with pills to make them go away. It's not so bad.

The coolest thing is now I live with some women dogs, pretty cute too, and the bestest thing is I have a Mom and a Dad too. My foster dad and I hang out together, cause we are the mens of the house. We're two cool dudes, cept when the women boss us around (sigh).

Anyways, I love it here, but would love a forever family. I am very handsome (mom says so). I am sweet (she says that too), just a generally good boy. Soooo... if you think I am for you, please come and get me. Love ya, Sam

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sam, a Gainesville 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 Gainesville, or seeking a Shar Pei dog from a breeder in Gainesville.

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