Chinese Shar Pei dog breed

A striking-looking breed, the Chinese Shar-Pei has a hippo's head dramatically wrinkled skin, and the bristly fur that gave him his name (literally "sandpaper skin"). Despite his scowling expression, he is a calm, good-natured dog who makes a great companion. Though, like other Oriental breeds, he is quite independent and needs to establish a relationship of mutual respect with his owner.
