    We have sprung Bosley from Wellington Park and he is DIVINE!!!!! Such a lovely lovely boy. He won't last long!

    Chaise went to surgery today. He had entropion to 3 lids, ears cleaned and a beneign tumour removed from his leg, together with a shot of cortisone for his unfortunate skin. He is a gorgeous man, can't wait to get hisstitches out for a good photo session. For that matter can't wait to get our pc's out of the other house so as I can post some of the newbies.

    Campbell arrives in Melbourne and will be transported straight to the vet tomorrow for surgery Friday.

    Been a busy week!

    This was the write up in the Daily Telegrapg in January about Roland - did I mention what a DIVINE nature he has????

    Roland the abandoned shar pei undergoes a facelift to stop going blind from entropion

    * By Chelsea White
    * From: The Daily Telegraph

    Sharpei

    IT'S the facelift that could save Roland's life.

    Rather than the vanity that motivates hounded Hollywood stars into seeking plastic surgery, Roland the abandoned shar pei has had a face lift so he won't go blind.

    As a shar pei, Roland is highly prized for his wrinkly skin, but the breed suffers from entropion, a painful condition in which his wrinkles cause his eyelashes to turn inward and rub against his eyeballs.

    If left untreated the condition could have caused Roland to go blind and was preventing him from being rehomed. The solution: A double eye lift and full face lift.

    RSPCA chief vet Magdoline Awad said the 90-minute surgery was not about vanity. "What we have done is made him adoptable," she said. "It is not uncommon in this breed, it is a congenital problem."


    Roland's eye lift surgery and excess face wrinkle removal cost almost $1000.

    Roland now had a better chance at finding a good home as a family could adopt him without having to pay for the surgery, Dr Awad said.

    Roland is one of growing number of shar peis turning up at animal shelters. The breed, once the world's rarest, is often dumped after owners realise the costs of correcting the breed's congenital health problems.

    I think they look so beautiful with minimal wrinkles - but the puppies are sooo cute with lots of wrinkles so I'm all confused!

    He's stunning Amanda, I hope he gets an amazing new home soon!

    Wow Shar the surgery looks amazing. I find it astounding that there are so many is need of rescue. I didn't think they were that popular? Excuse my ignorance but they are not a breed I have come across a lot.

    When i worked in boarding kennels we only had one pure come in and one cross in the years that I worked there and its a big kennel.

    From my limited knowledge of them they have the wrinkles when young but not so much when mature. Can you explain why the surgery, why the wrinkling doesn't lesson in some of them, if this is the case?? I just like to know a bit more about it.

    I know it's to prevent the eye lashes rubbing, but is it a fine line how much the wrinkles should recede as they mature?? Or something else.

    If you've already explained this elsewhere I apologise.

    The reason you haven't come across many pei is they have only been in Australia for 20 odd years. Hence why there seems to be more now given numbers have obviously increased substancially in this 20 yr time frame.

    Each pei line is different. Some as adults have squishy faces but not so many wrinkles on their body. Like My Noah. Squished in face (2 x entropion surgeries) but only 1 x wrinkle on his back and that is only when he sits down. Then there is Chaise. Wrinkles PLUS all over, a very squishy man.

    Personally I don't think Roland needed the brow lift and I think its a shame that this has been done as it makes him look less pei. Given I have his sister (litter mate) also in care, I can certainly see that entropion could have very well been necessary, but I don't think the brow lift was. I have only ever had 1 x brow lift performed and that was on the rolliest girl I have ever had through our doors. We did the entropion surgery, and all looked great until the stitches were removed and the wrinkles just flopped straight into her eyes, (lol) hence the necessity of the brow lift.

    It really is simple, there are no two lines of pei that are the same, they are ALL different and all with individual personalities, bless them.

    Morgan is doing well at Wellington Park, they all think he is gorgeous too! Will have a better idea of how he is progressing next week as they rarely show their true colours until week 2. Will keep you posted!
