Shar-Pei are very intelligent and very clean dogs. With this breed some things
to know are that they must be socialized at a young age. Shar-Pei are alert,
independent and very loyal. They can be standoffish if they are not socialized
properly with strangers. They become extremely attached to their family.
Shar-Pei do not require much grooming. Their coats do not mat, so
they do not need to be brushed a bunch. The main part of grooming is trimming
their nails and cleaning their ears. Their nails should be done weekly. They
blow a coat rather than shed and it should be brushed regularly.
There are and abundance of colors in the Shar-Pei, but only
solid colors and sables are acceptable in the show ring. The color of the tongue
should be a solid black, blue color. Colors include black, blue, cream, fawn,
red-fawn, red, sable, apricot, chocolate, and isabella. The nose may be black or
brick (pink with black), with or without a black mask. A Shar-Pei can
also have what is called a "dilute" coloration. Meaning the nose, nails and anus
of the dog is the same color as the coat. An example of this is; chocolate coat
with chocolate nose, nails and anus. A solid color dog may have shading,
primarily darker, down the back and on the ears.
