Much of China’s long history is shrouded in mystery and was protected from outside influences allowing for its own unique culture to develop. This isolated culture is apparent in Chinese dog breeds. The Chinese Shar Pei is one member of this ancient clan of distinctive dogs. Shar Pei’s date back over 2000 years to the Han Dynasty where they began as peasants’ dogs that served many purposes including: hunting, herding, and safeguarding livestock. It is believed the intelligent, loyal guardians became protectors of the palace and imperial family as evidenced by statues strongly resembling the Shar Pei dating back to 200 B.C. and manuscripts that write of “wrinkled dogs”.

Today the Shar Pei is known for its distinct loose wrinkled skin covered with a short bristly coat, it’s name translating to “sand skin”. The Chinese Shar Pei is devoted to its family and can be a protective watchdog and loyal best friend. A member of the AKC Non-Sporting Group since 1992, Shar Pei’s enjoy mental and physical stimulation from participating in obedience, tracking, agility and rally.
