Chinese Sharpei Puppies

The Chinese Sharpei is a purebred dog breed that’s part of the non-sporting group. Also known as the Chinese Fighting Dog, this doggo comes from China. First developed in 206 B.C., this breed was initially bred to be a multipurpose working dog. Today, they’re independent, loyal, and calm. If you want to know more about Chinese Sharpei puppies, then keep reading. 

Where to get Chinese Sharpei Puppies

You can begin your search for this pup by calling your local animal shelter or breed rescue organization. They might have Chinese Sharpei puppies, adults, or seniors available for adoption.

Most of these dogs have been at these places for a long time, waiting for the right family to come along. So, you can adopt and not shop while still getting a new furry friend. Plus, you’ll provide them with a forever, loving home. Chubbs…

On the other hand, if you have your heart set on getting a puppy and you want to know where the dog came from, then you can go through a reputable breeder. The American Kennel Club recognizes this purebred so that you can begin your search for ethical breeders on the AKC Marketplace.

Luckily, you’ll be able to tell a good breeder from the rest because they’ll do the following:

  • Health screen and genetically test the parents before breeding to ensure it’s healthy and safe to do so (then get the puppies tested)
  • Have health documents and family tree history available for you to bring home upon adoption
  • Allow the parents and the litter to live in their home as part of the family without the use of kennels (aside from crate training)
  • Socialize and train the puppies as early as possible
  • Ensure the puppies are up to date with all of their vaccinations

In addition, a good breeder will want to meet with you in person to get to know you so you can meet them, the parents, and the litter before deciding on adoption. Also, they’ll be open and honest with you. For instance, they’ll answer all of your questions about the breeder, the breed, the dogs and litter, the breeding process, and the adoption process.

So, if you find a breeder that doesn’t do the above, then you’ll want to avoid working with them. For instance, they might be a backyard breeder or a puppy mill, and they don’t breed the dogs in healthy or safe conditions. Also, they’re more interested in making a profit rather than finding the puppies good homes.

The Cost

The average coat of Chinese Sharpei puppies is between $750 and $3,000. However, the price can vary depending on a few factors, such as the time of year, the breeder’s location, the breed’s popularity, or the number of puppies in the litter.

Appearance

Chinese Sharpei puppies will grow to be medium-sized dogs. For example, they can grow to be about 18 to 20 inches tall and weigh between 45 and 60 pounds. Also, they have a short and smooth coat that can come in many different coat colors and markings, such as:

  • Black
  • Blue

Temperament

Chinese Sharpei dogs are great family companions. For example, they’re loyal and affectionate with their family members. Also, they’re great around young children, other dogs, and meeting new people.

However, they do need early socialization and training. They can be tricky to train, so you can hire a professional dog trainer to help you out if needed. Also, this doggo is a great watchdog, only barking to alert you of something or someone.

Finally, they have moderate energy levels. They can live in an apartment but prefer having a bigger house with a fenced-in yard. 

Chinese Sharpei Puppies – Veterinary Needs

You can bring this doggo to the vet a few times to keep track of their growth and development for the first year. Also, you can keep them up to date with their shots and boosters. Then, for every year after that, you can bring them to the vet at least once a year for their annual checkup.

For example, this dog breed is prone to getting the following health issues, such as:

  • Entropion
  • Hip Dysplasia
  • Mast Cell Tumors
  • Kidney Problems
  • Chinese Sharpei Fever
  • Patellar Luxation
  • Elbow Dysplasia
  • Demodectic Mange
  • Skin Problems
  • Heat Sensitivity

With proper care, this purebred has an average lifespan of about eight to 12 years. 

Diet

With your vet’s approval, you can provide high-quality kibble or canned wet food from a commercial dog food brand or homemade dog food. However, you also want to ensure that it’s appropriate for their breed size, age, weight, and metabolism. 

Grooming

You don’t need to worry too much when it comes to grooming. You can bring them to a professional grooming salon for a good cleaning, either once every six months or once a year.

However, they do shed and drool a lot. So, you’ll want to brush their coat and wash their face at least two to three times per week.

Finally, be sure to keep up with trimming their nails, cleaning their ears, and brushing their teeth regularly.
