Good Fortune Shar-Pei began in 1984 with the acquisition of a great dog named Charlie. Charlie was typical
of many Shar-Pei in being extremely devoted and intelligent. Through him I was introduced to the unique
appearance and personality that makes this breed addictive!|
Since that time, I have been active
in the "World of Chinese Shar-Pei" in many venues. For nearly fifteen years I have bred a limited number
of litters, producing and finishing dozens of AKC and CSPCA champions. (AKC Champions produced for the
last few years are included in this website.) I have competed with Shar-Pei in the breed ring, as well
as titling dogs in obedience competitions. At times I have assisted in the rescue and placement of abandoned
Chinese Shar-Pei, and have remained active as a member of the Heart of America Chinese Shar-Pei Club.
I have also been pleased to judge Chinese Shar-Pei at various fun matches and Specialty shows.
fondest experiences have involved training and showing dogs to their potential. I enjoy placing dogs
in homes with owners who are enthusiastic about the breed and sport. In addition, I have made many friends
who have welcomed my pet puppies into their homes as members of their family.
My advice to persons
contemplating the adoption of a Chinese Shar-Pei is to determine the amount of time they want to spend
with their dog. I recommend Shar-pei to people desiring a great deal of interaction with their pet.
They are "people" dogs, and prefer to be in the company of their owners. Time spent socializing and
training a Chinese Shar-Pei puppy (or adult) will be well rewarded. In fact, a proud owner of a healthy
and well-behaved Chinese Shar-Pei may find it difficult to have just one.
