Shar Pei

Post by sujin007 on Wed Nov 21, 2012 9:41 pm

Once among the rarest dogs on the planet, the pudgy, wrinkly Shar Pei has been a resident of China for over two thousand years. This is one of my favorite breeds..

There is no clear link between them, but it is likely that the Shar Pei and the Chow Chow have a common ancestor.. Both are extremely antiquated breeds and sport the distinctive purple tongue.

The Shar Pei maintains its guarding instincts and a serious temperament... Although they look cute on motivational posters, the Shar Pei’s loose skin has a gruesome purpose.

Shar Pei’s loose skin allowed them to twist and bite during dog fights, leaving it capable of retaliating even if an opponent got a good hold in.

Their popularity as dog fighters has subsequently waned due to comparative rarity and the overwhelming dominance of western bull-breeds..
