    It is pretty shocking the number of Shar Pei coming in! It is even worse to think that this is just one breed. Geez 16 weeks seems pretty young too Poor babies, at least they are getting a fresh start.

    That is great that NJ has a new home so quickly!

    I have been meaning to ask...Do you find that Shar Pei as a breed have poor eyesight? The dog training instructor had mentioned it to me a while ago and Yuna does seem to have a hard time spotting me during long distance recall. Then again it was windy and I'm not very loud. Just curious about everyones experience?

    Hi Cat,

    Yep, pei have lousy peripheral vision and from memory Yuna has rolls around her eyes? which can also be a stumbling block. Noah only has 5 -10% vision from eye damage due to excessive rolls before he was saved by SPR made worse by the fact he has a "lump/bump" to the inside of each eye, so I deal with this accordingly. However, I was recently baby sitting Baby Boo (who also had an entropion at a very young age due to excessive skin) and I noticed her eyesight wasn't much better than Noahs. Henry sees all, but he has exceptional perfectly shaped eyes - as he should given he was sold to his origional owner for $2500!!!! So to answer your question, I would suggest that their eyesight isn't as good as other breeds at the best of times, but can be worse still depending on the "hazards" on their faces. What are your thoughts Peipod?

    Peipod has just alerted me to yet ANOTHER boy in Sydney.

    Will get him out next week if I can find him foster care. Have sent out a mass email and posted a plea on line here......fingers crossed!

    I agree, Pei have poor peripheral vision in comparison to other breeds. You will find that if someone/something comes at them suddenly from side on they will often startle as they haven't seen anything coming.

    That is also why many of them are head shy when someone comes in to pat them on the head as they don't see the hand coming until it's quite close to them

    I did a pick up today at Renbury and there was a little black (dusty black) boy there. Kennel Hand said he was lovely.

    Hi Florence,

    He is microchipped but no name, so I have named him Gomez! He will arrive in Mexico tomorrow week. He is safe, both Peipod & LeanneK pointed me in his direction last night and I made arrangements with Renbury today. Also put my name to another boy there who came in today whom I have named Trigg.
