Tiny the Chinese Shar-Pei, the Dog of the Day
Name: Tiny
Age: Eight years old
Gender: Male Breed: Chinese Shar-Pei
Home: Mechanicville, New York, USA
      This is my dog Tiny, though as you can see, he outgrew his name years ago! He is a Chinese Shar-Pei. He was a tiny ball of wrinkles when we got him, so cute and clumsy - sometimes his wrinkles covered his eyes and he would bump into things!

     As adorable as he was as a pup, a Shar-Pei is not for everyone, as you have to be sure to kep their faces clean, because if food gets into the wrinkles it could cause painful infection. But we did our research and knew that, so getting his face washed after meal is just part of his routine.

     Tiny is a real character. He thinks he s a human, and likes sitting in the chair as you can see. He will "talk" to you, too, in various whines and noises. He is not very barky, but will alert if a visitor shows up. He has tiny little feet, so tends to sink in the snowbanks, so has to be conviinced to go outside on some winter days. All is all he is a great dog, and we love him just as he is!
