Feature SharPei - Bordeaux
Sponsor me Bordeaux

Hi, my name is Bordeaux! I am a sweet, male Shar-Pei mix. I am a big boy, so we think I might be a Shar-Pei / Lab mix. I have a wonderful temperament, and I‘m quite a talker. I do well with kids and dogs. I live with two Shar-Pei sisters now in my foster home. I am neutered and housebroken, but I don‘t really do confinement. That‘s okay though, I am a good boy in the house. My foster mommy has been giving me free roam of the house without incident. We have a doggie door here, and I really like that.

I enjoy walks and would love to be your walking buddy!

Do I sound like the guy for you?  If so, please fill out an application and ask for Bordeaux!

Please visit the adoption page to read more about me and see more pictures!

Potential adopters should fill out an Online Adoption Application.  Alternatively, you can download, fill out, and submit an application.  More Info
