This dignified and stately breed from China is a one-person dog who prefers to stay quietly by his person. Picture the Shar Pei
at your side on the sofa or lying in front of the fireplace, keeping a watchful eye on things. A short daily walk will satisfy his exercise needs; then he’s ready to get back home where he belongs. This is a medium-size to large breed, standing 18 to 20 inches tall and weighing 45 to 60 pounds
