My story

Spooky is a spayed female shar pei that was rescued and adopted in 2019. She was surrendered due to owner health conditions. She is friendly with people but lunges and barks at other unknown dogs (ex: on walks).    That being said, prior to her adoption she was friendly with other dogs and since she has been in her foster home a few months, she has done great with another submissive female dog in the same home and currently a male dog - playing together, sharing toys and bones.    So, we are confident she can be good with other dogs with slow introductions, but she would be just as happy as an only dog. (She would make a great pair with Romeo, who is also available for adoption). She would love a yard to run around with and a doggie door. She did get used to having people around during COVID, and isn't as happy when left alone.  She isn't currently a fan of crates, and while we did use some temporary medications to help her change of homes (from owner to foster), we are happy to say that she is no longer on any medications for anxiety.  (Note she may benefit from medications again to transition to a forever home, so any adopter should be open and willing to use that tool, short term, if they are wanting to adopt).    She is amazing with her people, likes to sleep on the bed with you, is best walked at times when she won't meet a lot of other dogs (or exercised in her own yard) and will do best with a family that is home most of the time. Spooky is about 55 pounds and has already had entropion eyelid surgery. She is a brushcoat. Spooky is spayed, microchipped and up to date on vaccines. A reduced adoption fee may be available thanks to a grant. To learn more about adoption, visit www.Peipeople.comOctober 3, 2023, 1:49 pm
