BREED STANDARD

Chinese Shar-Pei

 

General Appearance

An alert, compact dog of medium size and substance; square in profile, close coupled; the well proportioned head slightly, but not overly large for the body.  The short, harsh coat, the loose skin covering the head and body, the small ears, the "hippopotamus" muzzle shape and the high set tail impart to the Shar-Pei a unique look peculiar to him alone.  The loose skin and wrinkles covering the head, neck and body are bountiful in puppies but these features may be limited to the head, neck and withers in the adult.

Colors

Only solid colors and sable are acceptable and are to be judged on an equal basis. A solid color dog may have shading, primarily darker, down the back and on the ears. The shading must be variations of the same body color and may include darker hairs throughout the coat. The following colors are disqualifications: Albino; Not a solid color, i.e.: Brindle; Parti-colored; Spotted; Patterned in any combination of colors. 

Home bred and Raised

The dogs and puppies are home raised, leash trained and this helps in their mental development and creates better personalities and social skills All puppies are innoculated with the seperate shots Neopar and Neovac as well as worming with Nemex. We pride ourselves in this technique for over 15 years in our breeding lines.

Our PHILOSOPHY ABOUT CANINES

DON'T JUST DREAM - INSPIRE ALL

Plan your genetics and goals for each dog you have in your breeding family. Once they achieve their awards, share your success with others in the AKC family of  showing dogs and newbies to the fancy. We can all learn from each other.

DON'T JUST COMPETE - PERFORM

Each dog show you present the best of your breeding program and genetic with the judge that day. When you believe you have the best of your breed bred to the breed standard, perform and present that dog with pride.

DON'T JUST BELIEVE - ACHIEVE

Once you have the dogs that perform, are good companions at Meet The Breeds events with both adults and children, and are healthy you have achieved. Keep on perfecting your plan and sharing your success with others.

DON'T JUST MENTOR , EDUCATE

Help others to understand the Chinese Shar-Pei and the breed type, standard and health concerns that are part of the breed. We are the future of our breeds of dogs.  Getting to the masses so that puppy mills get shut down and intact dogs are not sold to people who are just putting a pair together without any common sense to the illnesses that are genetically passed in our breed as a money generating business.
