Overview
The Chinese Shar-Pei is a somewhat powerful dog. Known for his wrinkles, this breed makes a wonderful watchdog and can at times be intimidating to strangers. Very loyal, and devoted to his family.
Character
The Chinese Shar-Pei is an intelligent, dignified, and calm dog but can also be very alert making him ideal for a guard or watchdog. He has a strong protective instinct so this breed should be well socialized at an early age to avoid shyness or from being overprotective.
Temperament
Alert and confident, the Chinese Shar-Pei makes a wonderful companion to an experienced owner. This breed is not for everyone. He can do well with children, however should be supervised around infants, as this is a powerful dog. Can be somewhat aggressive towards other dogs, but given the right socialization, he can do well.
Care
The coat of the Chinese Shar-Pei is not very high maintenance, however it should be brushed to remove loose or dead hair occasionally. A rubber brush should suffice. The ears should be cleaned regularly as well as under the folds of skin.
Coat
The Chinese Shar-Pei has a very harsh and straight coat. The coat ranges from being either extremely short, to no longer than an inch long at the withers, called a "brush coat."
Training
The Chinese Shar-Pei can be stubborn at times, making him somewhat hard to handle when it comes to training. However, he is very willing to please and is intelligent. Firm handling should be practiced with this breed.
Activity
If given proper exercise, this breed can do okay without a yard. An average sized yard is suggested, but is not required. This breed loves walks with his owner however due to the folds of skin, which can make him overheat, fresh water should always be provided.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Chinese Shar-Pei puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

Can someone help us locate a dog breeder who breeds small Ori Pei dogs? ORI PEI are Chinese Shar Pei and Pug HYBRIDS. They are smaller in size and seem to have fewer health issues than full bred shar peis. We appreciate any guidance here. Thanks!

Since the dog you are looking for is a mixed breed dog, you will not be able to find them on this website. As well, since the person breeding this mix will not be a registered breeder, they most likely will not have a website or be advertising until they have a litter of puppies available. Unless you put an ad up in your area, it will be very difficult to find one that does not have puppies available. And please note that a well-bred pure-bred dog either Shar Pei or Pug will have little to no health problems such as what you think the mix will bring you.

Are Chinese Shar-Pei's hard to house break?

4 Comments

The Chinese Shar-Pei is known to be moderately hard to house break. They are known to be a bit stubborn, but using positive reinforcement methods and setting your puppy up for success, your pup should do just fine.

They are NOT hard to housebreak, and most Shar Pei puppies are potty-trained by 6-8 weeks (before ever leaving their breeders)

The Chinese Shar-Pei is known to not do well with other dogs. Please give your older dog several weeks to adjust to the new puppy. If things do not work out, make sure your breeder understands and is willing to take the pup back.

The female will likely do well with its male companion; however, it is not usually recommended that female sharpei be housed with other females.

How do I make my Chinese Shar-Pei brave again? The person before me mistreat the Chinese Shar-Pei

1 Comment

Anonymous

It would be a lot easier to provide a helpful answer if you would provide some details. In what way was he (she??) mistreated? Was he just mistreated - or was he abused? Does he have injuries? Was he made to go hungry? In what way is the dog "not brave"? Does he cower? Does he run & hide? Does he mess inside? Without knowing more, all I can tell you is to treat the dog with love and respect, and give him encouragement, praise, and most of all, lots and lots of patience. Encourage and praise him when he's NOT scared,. Love him, and let him know that he can TRUST you. There will be times that it will be very hard to remain PATIENT, but you MUST.REMAIN PATIENT. If he is bad, tell him "no",- but not angrily. When he is good, REWARD HIM - even if it is just a smile, a kind word, or a fond scratch behind the ears. NEVER, NEVER EVER yell at him or hit him. He will learn that not all humans are bad, and if you give him your love and respect, he will return it to you tenfold.

If you haven't heard of the devastating Familial Shar-pei Fever, it is best you read articles about this. I've lost several Sharpei over the years, It is commonly referred to as Swollen Hock Syndrome and it is common amongst the breed. In my experience it shows up typically second summer of life (I've wondered if heat stress contributes to the timing) and is often accompanied by fever...always by swelling around the rear hocks (knees) of the dog. The fever usually dissipates in about 24 hours but it will be your clue that the dog has a shortened lifespan-typically 6 to 7 years maximum. I love the breed dearly but this is a bitter reality.

Extremely thin female My Chinese Shar-Pei, Zoe, is a 2 year old spayed female. She is extremely thin despite food standing in her bowl. She is active and alert but it worries me that she is so thin. She is black but her coat is turning white in places. What can cause this?

The best thing to do in this case is to contact your vet. But changing your dog's food to a grain-free, high quality food is a good way to put weight on your dog. You may also want to look into 'Satin Balls' online and see about feeding your dog them as treats.

If you are concerned, you should go to the vet. Puppies eyes change as they age, but an adult dogs eyes don't change without a reason. It could be a form of eye cancer or a degenerative disease.

Yes this is normal especially for shar pei's and chows. Due to their fur, smooshed up face, and wrinkles they are highly sensitive to heat. So, that's why they prefer the cold weather over the warm summer days.

Assuming she didn't get pregnant, that's just the hormones of her heat that are still in her. They will go down soon.

The old theory used to be to breed a dog on the 10th, 12th, and 14th day after they first come in heat. And in most cases that will work, but I have had a dog breed once on the day she came in heat and one on the 29th day after she came in heat, again, one breeding, and those 2 had 4 and 6 puppies.

One of my best friend's shar pei pups had this condition, it's called cutaneous mucinosis. Mucin is the stuff that gives them wrinkles, it's also the stuff that acts like glue & appears stringy/sticky if you've had the experience of cleaning wounds with this breed. I don't think it's a big concern, unless the blisters are big enough & plenty enough to cause discomfort or pain due to where they are on the body. Sometimes they burst if they're scratched, & if it's a serious case (like my friend's dog), it may be bothersome if there are big blisters on his paws/between toes. My friend's dog Zephyr was the first I've seen with it, but you should find some info on shar pei sites about it. My pup Folsom, also a shar pei, is prone to allergies, environmental & food sensitivities mostly. They're great, but they do have some unique health issues arise that you'd probably never hear of if you didn't own one. Good luck with your pup :)

If this condition shows up in your shar pei, be aware it is fatal and your dog's life span will not extend past 6 to 7 years. There is no cure. It's proper name is Familial Shar pei Fever. It is common and devastating. My dogs with FSF have lived fully functioning and happy lives until just before the condition (amyloidosis) claims them. Heartbreaking.

It can be separation anxiety. My shar-pei had it, I just kept leaving mine in the hallway and going out of the door returning after 5mins then tryed her in a room and left her in room and the time got further apart. Always treat her if she does good but tell her if she has been bad and it should get easier.

Be firm with your sharpei and let him know who is the boss. The eyes, etc., are things you have to do to the dog for many years. Again be firm and try touching the dogs paws, around the eyes, etc., just to get it use to this; it will help the dogs behavior.

Use a soft cloth to clean his eyes, but don't just go straight to the eyes. Engage your puppy, pet him, and let him smell the cloth. Do this frequently -- and let him smell it after you clean his eyes. This helps him develop trust. Also, as pointed out by another user, pet him frequently, including gently touching his face and around his eyes so that this kind of contact becomes normal for him. The same principles apply with training him for nail clipping.

It's hard to discuss concerns about weight without also talking about feeding habits and diet. What do you feed your shar pei? How often? When does she eat/does not eat? Etc. Also, bone-mouth Shar Peis tend to run a bit thinner than meat-mouths, but not excessively -- and this can vary by the specific breeding line.
