Other pets are not usually a problem. Because the Shar-Pei is dominant towards other dogs, it is an advantage if he has been introduced to other dogs in the house from an early age.
The Shar-Pei always gives the impression that his skin is too big for him. There are two coat types: the so-called horsehair, which is very short, bristly, and hard, and the “brush coat”, in which the hair is about 2.5 cm long and sticks out at an angle of 90° from the body. Coat colors include red, brown, tan, light beige, cream, and black.
The coat is relatively easy to care for. The folds and wrinkles of the skin do not present any problems if the dog is rubbed regularly with a damp sponge, otherwise, the folds can easily become inflamed and infested with vermin.
In its original form, the Shar-Pei is a working dog. He is a good guard and companion dog. He is also suitable as a family dog and will love his family more than anything.
