Default Is this a purebred?





This guy is at my local shelter. Obviously has Shar Pei in him, but do you think he is purebred? We've had a litter of purebred Shar Pei dropped off before, so it's not impossible that he's from the same "breeder."

Any opinions? Suggestions for breed rescues?

To me, he's far within the region of "pure by BYB standards", not conformation quality, but there's enough Pei in there I don't think you need to list him as a mix. Really cute too BTW!

Agreed. Nice to be able to see his eyes.

I agree with this too. He's certainly "Pei enough"

He could be pure...but to me it looks like he is either the product of poor breeding or has a little something else in his background.

He sure is cute.

Up here we have a rescue called Shar Pei savers. There is Florida Shar Pei rescue...

You could go and post him on the Shar Pei forum there are a number of people that are active in pei rescue from all over.

Looks like a pure BYB to be, or at least close enough to one.

Could be. I'd contact a breed rescue.
