A most extraordinary--even peculiar--pure-bred dog, the Chinese Shar-Pei possesses distinctive characteristics that make him completely unlike any other dog. Described as independent, calm, affectionate and protective, the Shar-Pei makes an excellent choice for a family dog, though he needs a responsible, caring owner to tend to his many needs.
This book provides an excellent introduction to the history of this ancient Chinese breed, as well as a reliable account of the breed's personality and characteristics, and a discussion of the breed standard. The new owner will welcome advice about the Shar-Pei's many possible hereditary conditions that affect the skin and eyes, as well as guidelines for selecting a well-bred puppy and the steps to rear and train the dog. In addition to an extremely authoritative text, this book presents over 135 photographs in full color, which prove to be as informative as they are attractive. Helpful hints and important information are highlighted to provide easy access to everything the reader needs to know about life with this unique breed, the Chinese Shar-Pei from puppyhood to the senior years.
