HOW TO ADOPT A SHAR-PEI
Hi, I‘m Max! I am an adorable small Shar-Pei and am about four years old. I am very outgoing and curious about my surroundings. I love to check everything out while on a walk....trees, other dogs, and of course people. I feel that everyone should stop by and give me a warm pet on the head. I am very friendly and love people. I do well with dogs and pay no attention to cats. I am well-behaved, play gently and walk well on a leash too. I am just a great guy looking for a great home.... maybe you'll be the one to make my dreams come true!
My name is Minnie, and I sure am glad to be getting a new start. I am a very small,
female Pei, who had
quite a hard start in life; but things are much better for me now.
I have a nice foster home in North Carolina where I have a Pei buddy, Kobe. I‘m housebroken and enjoy being in the house. I have made myself at home here and have discovered the pleasure of lounging on the couch or even on top of Kobe!
I was heartworm positive and had a big benign tumor on my leg, but the rescue had my heartworms treated and had the tumor removed. I am good as new now and ready to find my “furever” home!
One thing that I wanted to mention for all of you who are interested in adopting me is that I need a home where either a person is home with me most of the time or where I have a canine companion. I‘m not real keen on being left by myself. I did have the opportunity to see some c-a-t's at the veterinarian‘s office, and well, I guess I did not do too well with them, so a home with no cats will be best for me.
Hi, I‘m Sable, a very sweet mature female Shar-Pei.
Foster Mommy says that I am an AKC dog (you know that means Adorable, Kissable,
Canine), and I have lots of squeezable wrinkles. The folks here treat me like one of their own, and they
even built me a doggie ramp so that I could get in and out easier with my sore leg. My Foster Mom says that I am a joy to have!
I walk great on a leash and would be a great companion for someone who likes slower leisurely walks. I am not up to doing any running but am still full of loving! I am hoping that there is someone out there with a soft spot for a well-behaved, sweet, mature girl who just wants someone to love and to be loved. IS IT YOU ???
Hi, my name is Suzee, and I am cute as a button. I am a young girl, about 1.5 years old, found by animal control with deep wounds under my arms. I still have some rawness in my armpits. The docs think that my harness was once embedded in my skin. I have an old injury to my rear leg that has healed and sometimes I do not put weight on it. But no worries with that, I still run, jump and play like a normal pup. I really enjoy playing with the dogs here in my foster home. The crate is not my favorite place, but my foster mom is helping me with this. I am mostly housebroken, so my new home will have to keep me in a routine. I am a little shy and will warm up to you after a little bit.
Hi there, I am Muffy. I am finally in rescue where I can get all fixed up! I still need to be spayed and have my eyes done.
Thank you to my guardian angel, Monika, for helping me when I needed it most. I wandered onto Monika‘s property, reluctantly, looking for attention.
I am a young, timid girl and it takes me a while to warm up to people. I will need to be adopted by someone willing to help me get comfortable.
I do great with other dogs but have not been in a crate. I enjoy being outside exploring the yard and will need a secure fenced yard for my safety.
I am also a good walker, but the loud city noises can scare me. My foster mom is working on getting me more comfortable here, so check back for my progress.
Update 6/6/12: From Muffy‘s Foster Mom...Muffy is still waiting patiently for her forever home with a fenced yard. She is slow to warm up, but I believe with the right person she will do fine. Muffy‘s vetting is now complete. Muffy does really well with other dogs and should probably be placed with another dog. She loves to play and engage in some wrestling matches with the other fosters. She has no food aggression as I have watched her share her food with the other foster dog. It is pretty funny to watch. Muffy does well in the crate now. She does not mind going into the crate after a treat and is very happy for me to let her out when it‘s time. She really has been no trouble in the house. She knows to do all her business outside and will hold it if the yard is too wet. If you are looking for a sweet girl, then please fill out an application.
Hi, I‘m Dolly Dagger (pka Daisy) the love bug! I was rescued from a shelter in Tennessee where I was dumped after being used as a puppy machine.
Thankfully, the nice rescue people found me and knew I deserved better. Foster Mom cleaned my ears and found them very
infected and yucky...she said she was heartbroken
because she knew how painful they must have been. Foster Mom put some stuff in there to make them feel better. Not sure what
it is because no one ever cleaned my ears before, but I know now that it is for the best.
I'm an adorable, tiny little girl. I am very affectionate and love to be hugged and petted. I was wonderful with the kids and ignored the cats at my short term foster home. I am getting along great with my canine foster brother and sister too. My Foster Mom says that I am a doll!
Hi, I'm Bogey, a sweet, young male Shar-Pei. I'm a friendly, energetic boy and love to play ball. If there is
no one to play with, I will throw my ball off the picnic table and chase it! Want to play with me?
Sometimes I hop around on two legs like a kangaroo...everyone thinks this is very funny.
I also love to run, run, run; so a fenced yard would be best for me.
I really like snuggling too. I ll cuddle right up with you if you let me! I am also crate trained, do well with baths, and am good at the vet.
I am friendly with everyone and other dogs. I would love a home that has kids and/or other dogs to play with because I love to play with anyone or anything.
I will do best in a home where I will get plenty of exercise and would make a great running partner. Are you looking for someone to run with to get in shape for summer? Well, so am I! Let‘s get together!
My Foster Mommy says that I am a sweetheart and that I am one of the sweetest dogs she has ever met!
Hi everyone! The little guy at my foster home has been calling me "tuck-tuck", and I like it! So
we decided that my new name is Tucker (previously Piper)! What do you think?
I'm a sweet male Pei recently rescued from a Virginia shelter. I've settled in nicely at my foster home. After the little boy here goes to bed, I curl up on his tummy time giraffe. I love this thing! Life is good here. My Foster Mommy says that I am precious.
I was quite neglected before being rescued and am both heartworm and lyme disease positive. I had my first doctor‘s appointment and was such a good boy. We are going to start my heartworm treatment. I need to be on doxycycline for 30 days then I have to go for an overnight appointment to have my first heartworm shot. Donations towards my care would be greatly appreciated.
Update 8/13/2012: My first hearworm injection is scheduled for August 24. Foster Mommy says that they are going to let me come home rather than stay overnight, and that makes me very happy because I really love it here. I am doing great! I follow Foster Mommy and our little guy everywhere and love to give kisses. Foster Mommy keeps trying to trick me into the bathtub - yikes! She is going to have to be a little more clever to get me in there :-)
Update 12/8/2012: Great news! I have made a full recovery from my heartworm treatment and am doing wonderfully! I am best buddies with the little boy here, and we are busy getting ready for the holidays. Hap-Pei Holidays!
Hi, my name is London.
I am a sweet, one year old female Shar-Pei mix. I just arrived in Pennsylvania on 8/26; and wow, did I have a crazy weekend!
I was on death row in NC last week...this was so very confusing and scary for me. Thankfully, I got out of there just in time.
On Saturday, I was off on a transport, and I went for a sleepover with some nice
people who came to my rescue. Then on Sunday some more really nice people came to drive me around, and I went to visit at another house...and then
I was picked up my even more nice people, who took me home to their house. Whew! I am exhausted, and I think all of the nice rescue people are too!
Thank you to everyone who helped me! Please check back for updates after I get to know everyone.
Update 8/30/2012: I‘m all settled in at my foster home and am having a great time playing with the dogs here - Marble, Dapple, and Satchel. The food is great, and I have a good appetite. I have not had any accidents in the house and sleep nicely in my crate. I am loving with my foster family and am always laying nearby, chewing on my Nylabone.
Update 9/4/2012: I am still doing great here. I am having lots of fun and am doing well meeting new people. I am scheduled to be spayed on 9/17.
Update 9/11/2012: My Foster Mommy says that I am “just adorable”. I am so sweet and loving and really very relaxed around my foster parents and all the other dogs now. I‘m very friendly with visitors (both human and canine). When I‘m eating, Foster Mom can pet me and move my food bowl with no trouble. I like to cuddle with them on the bed and on the couch. I have boundless energy. Last night, for about 20 minutes, I was zooming all over the place..out the dog door to the front yard, giant loops around the front yard, back thru the dog door, thru the house and out the back dog door and loops around the back yard...all the while being followed by Jasmine! Satchel was too tired!
Update 9/17/2012: I had my spay surgery this morning and all went well!
Update 10/2/2012: I am doing great at my foster home, and I love, love, love Jasmine! Check out our best buddies video!
Update 10/22/2012: Guess what! I learned how to sit on command, and I‘m learning to shake.
Update 11/1/2012: Check out my updated video and pictures!
Hi, I‘m Annie, a beautiful brindle female Shar-Pei rescued from a New York City shelter. Not a good place for
a pretty Shar-Pei; but despite my circumstances, I did well on my assessments at the shelter and was so happy to be rescued.
When I arrived in rescue, I was really thin and in pretty rough shape. Sadly, I wasn‘t cared for
in my past life, but life is great now!
I am settled in at my foster home in North Carolina and am doing great. I am getting along well with the other dogs here, and Foster Mommy says I am very well behaved. I am eating well and Foster Mommy has fattened me up a little. She gives me yummy homemade and rolled food with my kibble, and I really like that! I am very sweet and friendly. I am house trained, and I love laying in the sun in a nice comfy bed.
I am sending lots of hugs to all of the wonderful people who contributed to my fundraiser, which helped with my medical expenses! Thank you so much! I am doing great now thanks to your support.
Hi, I'm China, a very sweet, two year old female Shar-Pei. I was picked up by Animal Control along with my canine buddy, who already got adopted through the shelter. I miss my family and my buddy and cried for attention whenever anyone walked by me at the shelter. I was so happy when a nice lady brought me home to foster me and give me attention. I like to play and am house trained. I am looking for a “furever” home where I will be loved. I am not fond of cats so need a home with none of them please.
Hi, I‘m Lulu! I‘m a very sweet girl and a big lovebug who loves to snuggle!
I am wonderful with kids and other dogs. I love everyone!
Even during my vet visits, I am the hit of the office! Everyone loves me!
I was heartworm positive when I came into rescue, but the rescue had me treated for that and I am heartworm free - yay! I had a partial ACL tear but am now able to run around the yard and am ready to go to my “forever” home. I am very grateful for all of the wonderful people who contributed to my fundraiser - big hugs from me, Lulu!
Hi, my name is LaRue! I‘m a young, very loveable boy who enjoys giving kisses and will curl right up on your lap.
I am also a smart boy and am already housebroken and crate trained. I get along well with other dogs and
am doing pretty well on the leash. I am full of life and love and will
make someone a great companion and “furever” friend!
I went to the vet for my neuter and heartworm test. I was a good boy. Foster Mommy was very happy to hear that I am heartworm negative - Yippee!
I made a wish for a nice new Kuranda bed for my kennel where I can hang out on nice days; and GUESS WHAT, my dream came true and I got my very own bed.
Hi, I‘m Washington, a young boy rescued from AHS. I am a little nervous with people when I first meet them but warm up into a playful pup very fast. I am easy to walk on lead; and once I know you are my buddy, I'll jump around at your feet for play.
Hi, I‘m Truffles, and I am as sweet as my name! I am a wonderful, fun and smart little girl.
I was heartworm positive, needed entropion and spay surgery, and had huge rear dew claws with more than one claw in each that had to be removed. The rescue took care of all of that and now I am good as new! Look how BEAUTIFUL I am :-)
Hi, my name is Colby! I am a sweet boy rescued from a Georgia shelter. I love my new Kong toy and enjoy my walks! I have a foster sister, Rosie, that I really like too!
Foster Home Needed
Hi, I‘m Basil, a sweet and friendly four year old boy. I am very attentive and friendly and enjoy petting.
I will gently take treats from your hands. My most favorite things are squeaky toys!
I‘m waiting at the shelter hoping for a foster, or better yet adoptive, home. Can you make my wish come true?
Hi, I‘m sweet little Bella! I‘m beautiful, just like my name. I am good with other dogs, cats, and kids.
I am quite shy, but everyone who has met me has said that I am the sweetest little thing. I had a temporary stop in Virginia
and am now in my foster home in North Carolina. I‘m doing great here. I have a Pei sister, Brandy; and we are
getting along great. I still need medicated baths for my skin, and I‘ve been real good about them. You know how
us Shar-Pei are about the water, but I know it‘s for the best.
I am a very hap-pei girl because my Foster Mommy and Daddy are going to adopt me!
Hi I‘m Maxwell! I‘m a sweet boy who found himself on death row. It was
horrible, and I was very scared.
Thank goodness the nice rescue folks came and got me out of jail. I am about five years old and have been quite
neglected, I was quite a mess when rescued. I am already looking better, and they say I‘m going to be
a “looker” when I‘m all fixed up.! I was very thin, my skin and eyes were a mess and my ears were infected.
I know things are going to be better for me now.
I‘m eating good (food is great here), and I am housetrained. I am also good in the car. I am sweet and love to be rubbed and massaged. They gave me a soft dog bed, but I did not know what that was. I have never had anything like that. I am happy to be laying on a soft blanket and am all tucked in resting comfortably for the first time in forever.
My entropion is horrible, but the vet says it is fixable. My skin has yeast and bacterial infections, so we‘re working on getting that fixed first. Please check back for updates.
Once I am all fixed up, I‘ll be ready to be adopted by someone who will love me. I‘m just starting to see what a good life might be like and have a lot of hope for my future.
Foster Home Needed
Hi, I‘m Iris, a young blue flowered female Shar-Pei. I‘m a very sweet, friendly and happy girl and am good with male dogs. I‘m bossy with other female dogs so would do better with a male friend. I am already housetrained, ride well in the car, and eat well. I am energetic and would like a place to run or someone to run with me. If you are looking for a gorgeous and sweet girl to share your life with, well then, look no further! I am the girl for you!
Foster Home Needed
Hi, my name is Pink! I am a beautiful young lady!
I am waiting at the shelter hoping every day for a foster or “furever” home. Do you have room at your place?
