Woof! Hi it’s me Charlie. I’m hanging out here in St.Pete. I have two foster dads and 5 canine brothers and sisters. My BFF is Lulu. We run and play all day, til we are exhausted. Then we chase each other upstairs, to get the best spot in the bed. I love to follow my foster dad Tom, whereever he goes. We are joined at the hip.

I was on TV recently, and I was quite handsome, if I do say so myself. I’m happy here, but I would really love my very own family. I’m young, goodlooking and lovable. So what are you waiting for? Please come and get me. Ok. Sweet Charlie

Charlie is mostly a lap dog. He likes to be next to you on the sofa. or in the yard or at sleep time. He is very friendly and should be great with other dogs, cats and kids as he is laid back.

About this Pei :
Hello,
My name is Elsa. I’m a young girl, who had a bad start in life. My family neglected me and left me outside all alone. The good people from Manatee animal services rescued me, and promptly called Florida SharPei rescue to come and get me.
I have some worms in my heart, so I have to have some treatment for that.
In the meantime, I’m happy in my foster home. I have Tebow and Jack and Amos to play with. I’ve got foster mom and dad, even some little people to love.
I’m getting good food, treats and a warm bed. I’m not too familiar with these things called toys, but I mastered the doggy door in 15 minutes.
Mom named me Elsa after the snow queen, in the movie FROZEN. She said I’m beautiful, just like her. I like that, it makes me smile.
The thing is, I will be looking for my forever home real soon. So, even though I love my foster family, I’d love a family of my own. So please come and get me.
You have to promise to love me lots and never trow me outside like I was trash.
hugs and kisses,
Elsa

NOTES :
Will be on medical hold for heartworm treatment and spay.

About this Pei :
Hi, my name is Mauggie (aka Mugsy). I am a very active 50 lb, two year old female pei. My daddy died suddenly and a neighbor took me. She could not find a home for me so the good folks at FSPR decided to help me out.

I am happy staying with my foster mom and an old guy named Dudley, but I could really use a fur-ever home. I have my own bed and lots of good food. Dudley has a medical condition and eats three times per day. WOW, I get all the food I want and I don’t bother him when he eats. I would prefer a yard with a 6 foot fence since I can jump a 4 foot fence when I get scared. I am dog, cat and tiny people friendly.

Mauggie can sit most times but has trouble with stay. She becomes extremely excited when I come home – her tail wags her whole body. She gives sloppy pei kisses and enjoys sleeping on my bed with Dudley during the day. She is quiet and well behaved when I am home. She tends to get bored when I am not home and needs plenty of exercise to wear her out.

Mauggie is a delightful girl who will not be ready for adoption for several months. She is heart worm positive and needs to be spayed. She is UTD on vaccinations and is microchipped.

My foster Mom says my skin, coat, and ears are beautiful. I’m still a little skinny but I am eating well. I don’t potty in the house and I behave pretty good on the leash. I love to play, but never too rough. Oh, and I love to give kisses! Adopt me and I will love you forever!

Rocky (aka Harry)

Harry is doing very well and has become a great companion for their Maggie. They are also madly in love with him. She said he doesn’t make a mad dash for his food and has adapted quite well.

NOTES :

About this Pei :
They call me Fats, short for Fats Domino, but I like to be called Pup, too. I am a very active, affectionate boy. I play well with other dogs and I like the little humans, too. I came to Florida from Louisiana. The nice people at Florida Shar-Pei Rescue said they are going to help me get my coat healthy so that I can find a fur-ever home where I will be loved and spoiled like my two foster pei siblings here are. I really am liking my foster family but can’t wait to have a fur-ever family of my own. My foster mom says I am so very cute and that I have an A+ personality. Are you looking for a sweet boy pei to rescue you? Maybe I’m the one… Keep an eye on my progress, I’ll be looking for my fur-ever family and home before you know it. Love, Fats 🙂

Update- 4/19/2014- My foster mom says I am off medical hold now. I was neutered and my skin is much better. I had a low thyroid, whatever that means. I just know I love to play, eat, and sleep. I am looking for my furever home. Could that be yours?

Marley (F)

imageName: Marley
Sex: Female
Approximate Age: 19 months
Purebred or Mix: Purebred
Color: Black/Brown
Coat Type: Horsecoat
Adoption Donation Requested: $400
Foster Location: Jacksonville, FL
Size/Weight: 35lbs
Dog Friendly: Yes
Cat Friendly: Yes
OK with Small Children: TBD
Energy Level: Moderately Active
NOTES: Marley is UTD on shots and spayed. She is being treated for heartworms.

Hi! I’m Marley. I am a little over a year and a half old and have a black & brown horsecoat. I was very skinny when I came into rescue but I am eating well and gaining weight. I just got here but am looking for my “furever” home. My new foster family is teaching me to sit and some other things that I didn’t know how to do before I came into the rescue. I am good in a crate and haven’t had any accidents in the house since I have been here.

UPDATE:

Marley has had entropion surgery and is ready to find her new home. She is still HW+ but is being treated but can still be adopted to someone who will continue to give her treatment until she is HW-. FSPR will supply the medication for the Heartworm treatment. Marley will do very well in a home with other dogs. She follows her foster brother around and has learned a lot from him. She is very playful and loves to play with toys and chew on hoofies and Nylabones. She gets along well with both male and female dogs as well as cats. She would love a fenced yard but is good on a leash and loves walks so if you don’t have a fence, it’s okay. It does take Marley some time to warm up but we have had guests whom she has warmed up to by the end of the night. She just needs some time to figure out that you are there to spoil her too. She goes to doggy daycare with her foster brother and plays very well with all of the other guests. She also has warmed up to the staff and they love having her there. Marley would do well in a home with no children or older children that can give her time to warm up to them. Marley is crate trained and knows how to sit, knows “in” and “out”, and is learning to lay down and stay. If you are interested in Marley, please fill out an application. She loves it at her foster home but she wants to find her “fur”ever home so that another doggie can come out of doggie jail and take her place in her foster home.

My foster family thinks that I was an outside dog but I am loving being inside now. I like to take walks and don’t pull too much on the leash. I am scared of fast movements but my foster family takes me places and they have lots of different people pet me and give me treats so I am starting to not be so afraid anymore. I like to follow the cat around but I never try to hurt him. The other doggies at my foster home are teaching me how to play and eat treats. I love treats now but when I first came to stay here, I wouldn’t even try them. I have never had anyone to play with before either so I just watched everyone run around with these things they call “toys”. Now, I will pick them up and carry them around but I’m still not sure what I am supposed to do. I get along really well with all of the other doggies though… even when they bounce all over me.

I’m really happy and fun and think I would make a good addition to your home. What do you think? If you’re interested in adopting me, please fill out an application for me so we can meet!

Hi, my name is Alia. I was just saved by the great people from Florida Shar Pei Rescue. I have a nice warm bed, some handsome Pei dudes, and great food here. So far I love it. 

I was homeless for awhile, then I went to doggie jail. My foster parents came to see me, then they told me they were coming back. I was so afraid they wouldn’t, but they sure did. Boy was I happy. Foster dad said he’s gonna feed me a great dinner. I can’t wait. 

Anyway, Mom says I need a new coat. Mines kinda raggy looking. So I gotta see the doctorman, and maybe he’ll order me a new one. Until then, I gotta stay in rescue, but I’ll be ready soon. So if you’re interested in me, please let them know. Love and kisses, Alia

Hi, my name is Delilah. I found myself, with my sister Dominique, in doggie jail. I sure didn’t like that place. It was too scarey. But, thank God the good people from Florida Shar Pei Rescue came and saved us. We are warm and cozy now, with our awesome foster mom. She feeds us great food, and lets me cuddle her all I want.

Foster mom told me I have cherries in my eyes, so that’s why I haven’t been able to see. The doctorman is planning to fix it, along with the worms in my heart. Gees, I have lots of stuff to take care of. The good thing is, I’ll be getting it fixed soon. Soooo, I’ll be looking for my own family and home, not that I don’t love it here. So if you like pei kisses and love to cuddle, I’m your girl. Come and get me ok? Kisses and cuddles, Delilah

Hi, my name is Dominique. My sister, Delilah, and I were recently saved by Florida Shar Pei Rescue, from certain death. Now we are safe and getting lots of kisses and love, from our foster mom. Delilah likes to get mom’s attention. I told her she was selfish, and of course she whined to mom, who gave her more cuddles and kisses. So what if she’s cute, so am I. They call me a full figured girl, so don’t be asking me how much I weigh, I’m just large boned.

I have worms in my heart and difficulty seeing. I’m seeing the doctorman to take care of that stuff. Then I’m gonna be looking for my own family, when I’m all better, so if you like me, not my little sister, Delilah, come and get me.

Love, Dominique

NOTES: Dominique is a new arrival and will initially be on medical hold. She is spayed, microchipped, and up to date on all her vaccines. Dominique has severe scarring on her corneas and heartworms. She will be getting treated for both.

JEWEL UPDATE 10/12/13

Jewel has successfully completed house dog 101. She steals my socks, whines at the back door to go out, and sits near the cookie jar. Her personality could not be sillier or more pleasant. She is soooo happy! Of course I’m always poking and prodding and cleaning her up, trying to get her skin an coat in good shape. Her foster uncle has shown her how comfy dog beds are and how relaxing it is to lie around chewing a hoofie or toy. JuJu still has a very long way to go though, with some pretty serious physical disabilities. She will see the orthopedic specialist on Tuesday, and we trust his opinion and of course his work! This girl deserves whatever surgery might be needed to help her go on to a pain free life, and donations are deeply appreciated! One day this girl is going to have her very own forever home where she’ll never worry about being starved or neglected ever again. For now, she’s doing a pretty good job learning how to be spoiled by her FSPR family.

Hi, everybody! I’m Jewel, that’s a new name for me to go with my new lease on life. I am a very sweet girl but have had a hard life prior to coming into rescue. Me, my baby sister “Dora” and our mom “Lexy”, were dropped off at doggy jail. We had another sister but they say she crossed over the rainbow bridge before she could be rescued. That makes me really sad.

I am very skinny and have some problems with my back legs that make them not work right. I do get around but it’s not easy for me so the FSPR people who saved me say they know this really nice doctor man who likes to help dogs who have problems with their legs like I do.

I am staying with a really nice temporary foster family right now and one of my pei sisters here might be my real sister, she is older than me but she came to FSPR from the same place that I did and she had bad back legs then too, but the nice doctor fixed her so I guess he can fix me. I hope so.

I am going to be on medical hold for quite a while, I think, but it will be well worth it when I am finally healthy and able to play just like all the other dogs I’ve met here. I can’t wait to find a forever home. Maybe that can be with you? Check back on me often to see my progress. My temporary foster mom says I’m a diamond in the “ruff” that just needs to be polished till I shine. Love, Jewel

They call me Titus. I’m a very handsome boy and foster mom says I’m so sweet. I love to play like a puppy. My new foster sister is smokin’, what a good lookin’ babe. I fell in instant love with her. She’s a super high class lady. I’m soooo in puppy love.

My foster mom says I have the itchys, so she is treating me with some stuff called medicine. When I’m all better, I’m gonna be looking for my forever home. Don’t get me wrong, I love it here. I have great foster parents, and of course my foster sister. But I would love my very own people.

My first family didn’t want me anymore. They said I smelled. My toenails were so long, they started to curl. It hurt me to walk. I feel sad that they didn’t want me, but I have to move on. I know I’ll find a family that will truly love me, for the great boy I am. If you are interested in me, tell the good people at Florida Shar Pei Rescue. I’ll be waiting with tons of kisses.

Titus is a very loving sweet boy. He plays like a puppy. He is handsome and loves to cuddle. He will make a great addition to any family.

I have been told that I need to learn not to put everything in my mouth so that’s what we working on. I love to play with toys and OH do I love treats and chewing bones.

Additional Comments: Peiton is a new arrival and will be ready following medical review and clearance. He is UTD on shots, Neutered.

Hello good people, I’m Little Peiton, and while I’m not a big guy, I have a big heart and big love for play. I love people and other dogs and I didn’t pay attention to the kitties when I went to the doctor man. My foster dad says I’m quite a good looking boy and well behaved for a puppy.

I love playing and napping with my foster sister Gigi, and love having my belly, ears, nose, and neck rubbed. Sometimes I act like a kitty and purr when my belly is rubbed. I know to do my business outside and have not had 1 accident in the house. I sleep in my crate at night and am a quick learner. I already learned that Gigi and I have to sit before we are allowed to go out in the yard and I’m also learning to lie down, shake, stay, and here.

My foster dad took me to the doctor man and when I got home my dad told me I was neutered. I don’t know what that means but I think those rascally squirrels stole my nuts. It’s tough being me. My original mom gave me to the nice people at FSPR because she didn’t have a dad for me and she couldn’t handle a puppy and her children at the same time in her small apartment. If you’ll adopt me I will be the love of your life and promise to be a good boy.

Additional Comments: Ella is a new arrival and will be ready following medical review and clearance.

We received Ella as a pair (with Roxy). It’s still unknown if they are related; however, they behave remarkably together. Ella is a super sweet girl. She immediately came to us with tons of kisses. After two thorough baths, she looks and smells like a different dog. She is extremely friendly with our young son. And has ignored our cat.

Since the weather has been great outside, she and Roxy have been chilling each day on our deck in the shade. They initially slept in a large crate together, until (like always) we let them join us in our bedroom 🙂 I had to make Ella snuggle right next to me. She eventually LOVED getting pet and pampered. She is always following us around the house, to be involved with everything. There have been no accidents in the house and no chewing on our furniture or toys. She even caught on to the doggy-door real quick. They have not tried to dig under our fence or are bothered by our neighbors dog that barks.

I really think this is the first time she has ever been treated like family – which she truly deserves. I believe she would do great in a home with children or other animals. She doesn’t even seem concerned that we have two other dogs in the home. She just chills and does her own thing. But definitely wants to be a part of the family. She is more passive than Roxy, letting Roxy push her way to the food bowl first. But Ella is first to give kisses. Overall, she is an amazing pei!

Hi! My name is Chloe and I’m new around here. I was dumped at a Walmart parking lot and some nice people picked me up and took me to a scary place with lots of other dogs. I had to be spayed and they said I have worms in my heart. My foster mom came to pick me up and then took me to another place where they said they could get rid of those worms and told me that I need to have my eyes fixed. I won’t be able to go to my new home until I am all better but I still wanted to let you know that I am here and when I am better, I might want to come and live with you.

I am still a little scared but I do like to play with the other doggies at my foster home. I’m not sure what to do with toys and treats though but the other doggies are teaching me. I haven’t had any of those things before. I have learned what “no” means (even though I don’t like that word) and I learned how to sit. They are still teaching me all kinds of new things here. I even get to hang out with this little guy they call a cat. I really like him and I always give him kisses when he comes around. I do that to the other dogs too.

I’m a really happy girl and I think I’m just what you need to make your home complete. My foster mom doesn’t know a whole lot about me yet but says I am pretty easy going. I love for her to pet me and play with me and I also like to take walks. I am pretty gentle and don’t pull much on the leash when we go outside. I do very well in a crate and am housebroken. If you think I sound like a good fit for your family, let the people at FSPR know so maybe I can come and live with you.

Shadow

I am attaching a few pictures of our Shadow. He has come a long way. Once a week I take him to a place called Happy Dog Inn. (a doggie day care and kennel) so he can play with other dogs and not be afraid of kennels. I have been doing this for about a year now and he loves this place. The people there have been wonderful working with him too. Now I can Leave him there when we go out of town and not worry about him and he is not scared to be there. The picture I love the most is the one I have attached with him at the pool at day care. Again thank you for all you guys do for the Pei Babies. Regards, Linda Mays & Shadow

Additional Comments: Roxy is a new arrival and will be ready following medical review and clearance.

We received Roxy as a pair (with Ella). It’s still unknown if they are related; however, they behave remarkably together. Roxy is such an adorable shar pei. It only took her about 5 minutes to get rid of her shyness and warm up to us. Her beautiful apricot color glistens in the sun. Once all of her hair comes back (after a proper diet) – she will be one gorgeous pup. After two very thorough baths, she looks and smells like a different dog. We were told that she and Ella were left outside for weeks at a home that had been foreclosed on. Thank goodness good people found them and took them to the shelter. You would never know that humans treated her unkind because she is the sweetest dog and loves affection.

She is extremely friendly with our young son. And has ignored our cat so far. Since the weather has been great outside, she and Ella have been chilling each day on our deck in the shade. They initially slept in a large crate together, until (like always) we let them join us in our bedroom 🙂 She loves to rest (could be the meds she’s on right now though) but also likes to know where everyone in the house is at all times.

There have been no accidents in the house and no chewing on our furniture or toys. She even caught on to the doggy-door real quick. They have not tried to dig under our fence or are bothered by our neighbors dog that barks. I really think this is the first time she has ever been treated like family – which she truly deserves. I believe she would do great in a home with children or other animals. She doesn’t even seem concerned that we have two other dogs in the home. She just chills and does her own thing. But definitely wants to be a part of the family. She is more dominate than Ella, pushing her way to the food bowl first. But there wasn’t even a growl when we introduced her to our dogs. Overall, she is an amazing and beautiful pei!
