Suspicious, affectionate, reserved, devoted, independent and loving

Exercise

Shar Peis aren't very demanding when it comes to exercise. 2 brisk walks a day should suffice

Origin

The Chinese Shar-Pei has been around since at least 200 B.C. Archeologists discovered statues that bear a strong resemblance to the Shar-Pei and have dated them to that time. The breed is thought to have originated in the area around the village of Tai Li.
