Extra Information: Shar-Peis are known for their wrinkles. Most people are turned away from buying or adopting a shar-pei because of the sight of the wrinkles. They have an issue with drool dripping and getting everywhere. Make sure you have a cloth nearby before all that slobber gets everywhere when your shar-pei shakes. Even though it is a lot of work to keep you shar-pei in shape, you have to remember these dogs will love you to pieces.
