Austin the Shar Pei, the Dog of the Day
Name: Austin
Age: Seven years old
Gender: Male Breed: Shar Pei
Home: San Antonio, Texas, USA
   Austin is a Chinese Shar Pei. He was a rescue from an animal hoarder. He was rescued by the North American Shar Pei Rescue and I adopted him through them when he was about a year old. Shar Pei are not a breed for just anyone, they need special care to keep them healthy. Those wrinkles, though adorable, can get food trapped in there and cause infection if they are not tended to. So being neglected is painful for them physically as well as devastating emotionally. It was obvious his early life left him with baggage, but I knew he needed a loving home.

      We continue to deal with his skittishness on a daily basis and I accept whatever kind of affection he gives me. He's come along way, but still doesn't feel 100% safe and secure, even with me. But I love him, and seeing him happy is worth everything.
