Adopt Sharpie

Breed: Shar-pei x lab
Appearance: beautiful soft tan coat.
Ideal home: no children. No other pets. She is the queen bee.

Interests: Sharpie spends most of her life with her snout facing the gate. Watching. Waiting. She puts on an epic show at the gate and protected us from many a pamphlet bearer and would be murderous mailman. She will come for cuddles, pushing and lowering her head into you and covering her eyes (a sign of trust). She understands basic obedience.

Temperament: She is affectionate and loyal but not needy – she keeps to herself when you are busy. When it comes to other dogs she is dominant and does best on her own, this is not an issue when it comes to people. She takes food given from the hand gently and obeys commands given.

Health: she is up to date in her vaccines and had her teeth last cleaned in 2018. Sharpie has lupus which results in discoloration of her nose from sunburn, easily treated with daily application of Pet sun cream (there is such a thing) on her nose. Sharpie was born with very shallow hip sockets, this does not affect her on a daily basis, she has no mobility issues. Whilst exercise is important, walks should be kept fairly short. She prefers to lie on your lounge carpet and snooze or watch your gate (see above).
