About this Pei :
I was dropped off at a kill shelter by my owner. I was very confused and scared. A nice woman from Shar-Pei Rescue of Tennessee picked me up and transported me to my foster mom. I was very scared and did not behave well. Now, I know I am safe so I am behaving better.
Ginger has been slowly recovering from the separation from her owner. She is loving, playful and happy. She has learned to use the doggie door and goes out on her own. Otherwise she stays very close to me. Ginger is a lively girl, loves to cuddle, loves to ride in the car, and is extremely playful. She can sit, stay, and comes on command. Presently, she has shown the lack of socialization with other dogs, so is being kept separated from her foster Shar-Pei sisters and brother to avoid any unnecessary conflict. Until we are able to determine her temperament around other dogs, we would not recommend she go to a home with other pets. We strongly believe, at the moment, she would do very well as an only dog due to her poor socialization ability demonstrated, so far.
Just out of curiosity, Ginger’s foster mom had a DNA test done on Ginger to see what her mix actually is, and the results are in… As it turns out, Ginger is 1/3 Shar-Pei. She is also 1/3 Cocker spaniel and has a bit of doberman and Shetland sheepdog in her mix. Ginger carries a lot of Shar-Pei characteristics but should be less likely to suffer from the breed specific health issues commonly occurring with Shar-Pei. She is adapting nicely to her foster home but would love to have a forever home of her very own. Could that possibly be with you?
