OUR GOALS AND VISIONS
We have a
passion for Shar-Pei of all sizes, colors and coat types but we concentrate on
breeding to the CSPCA standard. Below are our thoughts and beliefs on breeding
and exhibiting Shar-Pei.
Breeding and exhibiting Shar-Pei has been our hobby and life’s interest since
1985. Since that time we have worked to gain sufficient breed knowledge to work
towards our goal of continually improving.
Although exhibiting our dogs to their championship is an important part of our
goals, the breeding is the most interesting and challenging.
We sincerely believe only a very small number of purebred dogs are of the
quality worthy to be bred. This is our lifelong commitment.
We have bred an average of less than 6 puppies a year over our existence as
breeders so you can see that we are hardly a commercial operation. We breed
only to produce a better Shar-Pei for our efforts in the show ring and for other
reputable breeders. Our quality companion puppies are the by product of the
We occasionally have some pups available to approved homes.
Our main goal is to breed happy, healthy, sound, well adjusted Shar-Pei with
correct type and temperament with style and attitude. And to produce Shar-Pei
suitable for conformation, agility, obedience and family companions.
We will only breed to preserve the best qualities of the Shar-Pei. Breeding just
because you have orders for puppies is not a justification to produce a litter.
We try to be objective with our dogs in our endeavor to breed quality Shar-Pei.
We separate our love for each individual Shar-Pei from our honest evaluation of
that dog's good and bad points. In the eyes of its owner, virtually every dog is
the best in the world, and as a breeder you must look beyond your love of your
dogs if you wish to have a successful breeding program. After thorough
consideration and evaluation, we select which dogs are to be bred. Emphasis is
on breeding consistent quality and type in all our dogs, not just the ones we
We strongly believe in testing our dogs before we breed.
Our goal is to work towards the eradication of health problems, using the
testing means available to us and to be honest and forthcoming with our fellow
It is pointless to test and then ignore the results or the ramifications from
breeding to less suitable animals health wise just because it is the flavor of
the month, or handy to use.
We spend a lot of time and effort in researching the breed. As Shar-Pei fanciers
we believe it is our duty to be honest with our fellow breeders. Open
conversation with fellow breeders will be a benefit to the breed as a whole. We
will ALL encounter some sort of problem in our lines and by being open and
forthright it may help another breeder avoid unwanted traits.
As breeders we are the guardians of the breed.
Our goal is striving to breed a better Shar-Pei in each litter we produce but in
order to breed a better Shar-Pei you must have a vision of what your ideal
Shar-Pei is like. While we all have the breed standard to follow it is lacking
in detail and open to personal interpretation.
Our vision of the ideal Shar-Pei would include the following points.
Our ideal Shar-Pei has a fantastic temperament, is intelligent, shows curiosity,
is sensitive, is extremely trainable, is distrustful of strangers, haughty,
devoted and protective to his owner, a friend of the children, adaptable, takes
pride in his appearance, thinks like a person and has a sense of humor. Our
ideal Shar-Pei is extremely versatile and excels in any challenge offered to
Our ideal Shar-Pei must have correct structure; he is of medium size, and
moderately angulated allowing him to move correctly. Our ideal Shar-Pei moves in
perfect rhythm with a slight spring in his step, with plenty of reach and drive.
Our ideal Shar-Pei must have true Shar-Pei type. A squarely built, balanced,
well proportioned, short backed dog with a harsh, short coat. He has a solid
black tongue. He has the head piece that is so distinctive of the breed, with a
broad muzzle, and tiny ears.
Our ideal Shar-Pei is healthy, active and has a lifespan of 12 - 14 years.
Our goal is to try and ensure that our puppies and older dogs are placed in
loving, caring and appropriate homes.
