Gatsby's Story...
Gatsby is a very handsome, playful, fun and loving, 11-month-old, 38-pound, cream-colored purebred Shar Pei puppy looking for a loving guardian. Gatsby has the playful personality of a happy puppy! He loves to play fetch and carry tennis balls around in his mouth. He has an extremely friendly, goofy and outgoing way about him. Gatsby doesn’t know any formal commands yet. He is housebroken, crate-trained and non-destructive in the home. He would love a home with a fenced in backyard to play! He loves to play ball and may be too noisy and energetic for an apartment or condo. He has a few dog friends at his kennel and is best with children over the age of ten. Gatsby was turned into Chicago Animal Care and Control by his family when they found out he needed surgery for entropion. Because of the extra facial folds in the Shar Pei breed, the inward rolling of the eyelid (entropion), is quite common in the breed and can ultimately cause visual impairment. Lucky for Gatsby, he was taken in by the We Luv Paws Shar Pei Rescue. He’ll make a great family dog and would do well with older kids who would like to play fetch with him. Gatsby is now perfectly healthy, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, de-wormed, tested negative for heartworm, on monthly heartworm preventative and micro-chipped. Gatsby’s adoption fee of $300 benefits the rescued dogs of We Luv Paws. To meet and possibly adopt him, you can contact their foster mom Jen at or 630-553-7829. He is being fostered in Plano, Illinois.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gatsby, a Chicago 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 Chicago, or seeking a Shar Pei dog from a breeder in Chicago.

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