About this Pei : 
Baxter is a friendly young dog who gets along well with adults, dogs and older children (10 yrs.+) He is uncomfortable with small children (2 yrs.-6yrs.) because of their movements and it is considered best that he not be adopted into a home with small children. In  all other ways, Baxter is a delightful dog with an easy-going personality. He is at ease with other dogs and enjoys the company of people and playing with his toys. He loves playing outside and a fenced yard would be ideal for Baxter.

Palmer

Palmer is not a FSPR dog but the owner has asked us to help rehome her.

Palmer  is a  year old and, as you can see, a very good looking girl!  She gets along with small dogs but doesn’t like the bigger male Shar-Pei that is a part of her current family. Both she and the male are evidently alpha personalities. They are broken-hearted to let her go, but feel that she will be happier in a home without male dogs or where she is the only dog.

If interested, please contact our rescue and we will give you the owner’s contact information. Palmer is located in Bradenton, Fl.

Foster Location :   Gainesville, Fl 
Approximate Size/Weight :   36 lbs 
Dog Friendly :    Yes
Cat Friendly :     TBD
Small Child Friendly :    TBD
Energy Level :    Laid Back 

NOTES :    
Robi will be on medical hold for the next 2 months in which time it is our hope that her tumor issues will be resolved. They are numerous and yet she seems to deal with all of this and is a happy dog.

About this Pei : 
Robi is a sweet young female who needs a lot of medical attention. She is loved by her vets and allows them to accomplish the many tests that we hope will give her a better life. Please stay tuned and check the website or our Facebook for updates.

Update February 2022:
After many diagnostic tests and procedures including four tumor biopsies, lymph node aspirations, ultrasound, and exhaustive lab work, Robi was diagnosed with a very rare form of cancer called canine cutaneous Langerhans cell histiocytosis. The diagnosis was made at the University of Florida school of veterinary medicine by the derm pathology department. She was given supportive care and love but continued to deteriorate and waste away. A difficult but humane decision was made to end her suffering and euthanize. Thanks to all the medical personnel for their care and to those who so kindly donated for her care. Our director and her husband stayed with her while she crossed the Rainbow Bridge and brought her cremains back to their home. She did not die alone. We hope to never see a case like this again.

Sampson

Name :   Sampson 
Sex :   Male
Approximate Age :   1 yr 6 months 
Purebred or Mix :  Purebreed
Color :   Fawn(tan) 
Coat Type :   Brush
Adoption Donation Requested :   375.00 
Foster Location :   Gainesville, Fl 
Approximate Size/Weight :   46 lbs. 
Dog Friendly :    Yes
Cat Friendly :     TBD
Small Child Friendly :    Yes
Energy Level :    moderately active….loves to play 

NOTES :    
Sampson is up to date on all of his shots, his coat is in beautiful condition, he IS heartworm positive, needs to be neutered, and at that time, he will also have entropion surgery (eyes). He will be on  medical hold for a while but can be adopted prior to that with the understanding that we will need to complete the medical mentioned above.

About this Pei : 
Sampson is a very happy dog. His vision is not as clear as it will be once he has surgery but nevertheless, he loves to play and runs around chasing toys, etc. He was abandoned at a convenience store near Valrico, Fl with his litter mate by the owner. He offered the dogs to bystanders and said that he was leaving them at the store regardless, which, in fact, he did . The dogs were brothers and sadly, the other dog got away and has not  been found so far.
I think that Sampson misses his brother, and seems receptive to other dogs when he seems them. He will be a great family dog once his medical needs are fully addressed. He is dealing with lots of issues now but still shows spirit, spunk, and happiness…..he’s just waiting for the right family!

“Noodles” is a happy dog that loves the company of people and other dogs. His age is a guess but he plays like a young dog. He loves to play in the yard and enjoys basking in the sun.

NOTES :    
Bruno is a beautiful brush coat Pei. He has been kept in excellent condition. He is up to date on all of his shots, and his coat is gorgeous He has no medical holds and is now looking for a new home.

About this Pei : 
Bruno is a laid back dog who is a bit aloof with strangers but warms up to them. He mostly just wants to be with his own people. The situation is now that there are 3 children in the family and he is not comfortable around the kids. The owner is very upset about needing to place him but understands the need to do so. Bruno will take time to learn new surroundings and new people. PLEASE do not apply to adopt him unless you have a quiet home with Pei experience. He is a beautiful example of a blue Pei and comes from an excellent breeder. He enjoys playing (watch  his videos) and is truly an elegant dog. This is a special chance for someone who truly loves AND understands the breed to own one. 

If you have questions, please address them to info@floridasharpeirescue.com . Bruno is currently with his owner in Miami. We are assisting them in finding a new home for him as we currently have no open foster space.

About this Pei :
Cooper is a joy to be around. He is a little hesitant with strangers but adapts quickly. He loves to run and play and will do so until he is just too tired to go anymore! Cooper is a good eater, enjoys having treats and responds to sit, down, give paw. His tail is beautifully curled over his body and he is a handsome boy. I believe that Cooper will bond to a new owner(s) quickly and be a wonderful companion.

About this Pei : 
Sienna is very friendly and is eager for attention. She loves playing and overall has a very receptive personality. She is fine with a leash and enjoys going for walks. She has a very full tail and really lets you know she is happy to see you when she starts wagging!!

All in all, Sienna is a very easy dog to be around. She shows minor hesitation to new people but that lasts for about a minute! She has a very thick coat with overtones of gray but she is predominantly a chocolate color. Her face is very pretty and she has a very elegant look about her.

We will be introducing her to our dog and cats to see how she reacts and we will update that information soon.

Polar

Name :   Polar 
Sex :   Male
Approximate Age :   3-4 
Purebred or Mix :  Mix
Color :   Fawn 
Coat Type :   Brush
Adoption Donation Requested :   TBD 
Foster Location :   Gainesville, Fl 
Approximate Size/Weight :   46 lbs 
Dog Friendly :    TBD
Cat Friendly :     TBD
Small Child Friendly :    TBD
Energy Level :    moderately active 

NOTES :    
Polar is up to date on his shots, heartworm negative, and neutered.

About this Pei : 
Polar was  found  west of Sebring, Fl  in a rural area. He was thought to be a stray and was picked up by animal control. His overall coat and health seemed good and because of this we do not think he had been a stray for very long. He was very hesitant with strangers and it has taken a while for him to warm up. He is now very affectionate with both my husband and myself. He will play and run around like a puppy. He wants to be an inside dog that also has a fenced in backyard to play in….a pet door to the outside would be perfect! Polar will be a good watchdog and companion as well. Polar MUST have a fenced back yard and an owner with patience and experience with the breed. His coat is thick like a brush coat but much softer. He is Pei in overall appearance but with a smaller face. He is a good eater and has never messed in his kennel. He has learned to sit, give high five, and down. What a smart guy!!!

Polar will do well in  a quiet home perhaps with a person who works from home or  is retired. He is a mix but as mentioned, his body is typically Pei but with a smallish face. We have grown close to him and really want him to have a chance for a forever home.

About this Pei :
Look at me! Look at me! My name’s Chevy. Aren’t I a handsome boy? I’m here with the nice people at the Florida Shar Pei Rescue and they are taking great care of me but this is the thing, I know this isn’t my forever home and I do want one of those so much. I would prefer to be an only pet as I am a little bossy sometimes with the other guy pei here at my foster home. I think that’s because I have always lived with other dogs smaller than me. I am good with kids. My last home had a really little human, he couldn’t even walk yet. Please let the people at FSPR know if you think I would fit in at your place. TTYL, Chevy
