This breed almost became extinct. The Shar-Pei lives in a bristly coat several sizes too large, giving the puppies a wrinkled look. By adulthood, the wrinkles have mostly filled in. The Shar-Pei will guard their homes and are intensely loyal to their family.
We currently do not have Shar-Pei breeders listed with CADF.

When you purchase a puppy from a CADF breeder, you are purchasing from a dedicated, conscientious breeder whose priority is to produce healthy specimens of their own breed.
All CADF member breeders have agreed to abide by our Code of Ethics. Our breeders screen their breeding stock for known hereditary problems, specific to their particular breed. This allows you to purchase your puppy with confidence, knowing that your breeder has taken all of the necessary steps to provide you with the healthiest puppy possible.
