Its origins are unknown, but because only it and the Chow Chow have blue-black tongues, and both come from China, it is likely that they share some common ancestry. At this time Shar-Peis were the working breed of peasant farmers, fulfilling roles of guard dog and wild boar hunter. The breed has since been brought from the brink of extinction to the height of popularity, and it is one of the most recognizable breeds in America.
Though known for its loose skin and profuse wrinkles, which are superabundant in puppies, the wrinkles of adults may be limited only to the head, neck, and shoulders.
The Shar-Pei can be self-assured, serious, independent, stubborn, and very much self-possessed. Although not particularly demonstrative, he is devoted and may be very protective of his family. He is reserved, even suspicious, toward strangers.
He can be assertive toward other dogs and may chase livestock and other animals, although he is generally good with other family pets. The Shar-Pei needs daily mental and physical stimulation, but his needs can be met with lively games throughout the day or a good long walk.
The coat needs only weekly brushing, but wrinkles need regular attention to ensure that no irritations develop within the skin folds. The name Shar-Pei means sandy coat, referring to the gritty sandpaper texture of the coat. When rubbed backward, the prickly coat can be uncomfortable, and even cause welts on the skin of an occasional sensitive person.
