They are squarely built and short-coupled and look powerful with good bone. Their coat is short and bristly and harsh to the touch. The Shar Pei dog comes in many colours – see the breed standard for details. Adult Shar Pei measure 46-51cm and weigh around 18kg.

The Shar-Pei has a regal, independent personality, and makes a great watchdog. However, like many other dogs bred for hunting or fighting, this breed can also be stubborn and territorial; without proper socialization, they often become aloof or unfriendly to strangers

The Chinese Shar-Pei has some health problems that can be a concern, especially if you are not careful whom you buy from. They include hip and elbow dysplasia, patellar luxation, autoimmune thyroiditis, eye problems such as entropion, retinal dysplasia, glaucoma and cataracts, and skin fold infections.
