Shar pei je zelo stara pasma psov katerih vzreja se je nekoc omejevala le na obmocje Daljnega vzhoda. Po vojni med bratoma CHIANG KAI CHEKOM in MAO TSE TUNGOM in s pricetkom kulturne revolucije konec sesdesetih let, je tej pasji vrsti grozilo izumrtje. Vzrediteljem v Hong Kongu in ZDA se je posrecilo ohraniti vse lastnosti, ki so oznacevale prvotne predstavnike te pasje vrste. Prvi kitajski shar pei je iz ZDA v Evropo pripotoval leta 1978. V tedanjo Zvezno republiko Nemcijo jih je uvozil sodniski kinoloski par Linda Reinelt Gebauer in Joachim Weinberg. Linda Reinelt je tudi prva zacela z vzrejo shar peiev v Evropi

Ohranjene slike in spomeniki pricajo, da so psi pasme shar pei ziveli v svetiscih ter na dezeli kot cuvaji in druzinski psi. Uporabljali so jih tudi kot pse gonice pri lovu na merjasce. Prenekateri shar pei je koncal v loncu. Najstarejse dokaze o obstoju te pasme so zasledili v mestu DAH'LET v provinci KWANG TUNG na jugu Kitajske.

SPLOSNI OPIS

Shar pei je solidno, kvadratno zgrajen, kompakten pes, srednje velikosti in teze, sirokega profila in kratkega trupa. Glava je v primerjavi s trupom povecana in spominja na nilskega konja. Odlikuje ga kratka in trda dlaka, koza ohlapno prekriva glavo in trup. Ima tipicno oblikovano zobovje, skarjast ugriz. Posebnost pasme je modro obarvan jezik in notranjost ustne votline. Koza mladickov je precej nagubana, kot da so obleceni v prevelik pulover. S starostjo se kozne gube porazgubijo, obvezne so le na glavi, dovoljene so na vratu. Psi so prijazni, cujeci, cisti in kot taki so zelo primerni kot druzinski psi.

ZNACAJ IN VEDENJE

Kitajski shar pei je zelo pozoren, dejaven, zivahen in cist pes, ki se brez tezav vkljuci v druzinsko zivljenje. Je zvest, vdan, vendar zahteva pozornost. Nagnjen je k pretiravanju in zahteva v povracilo prav toliko ljubezni, kot je sam daje svojim gospodarjem. Do neznancev se obnasa precej zadrzano. Shar pei je pameten pes, ki se hitro uci in razumeva a vseeno kdaj poskusa z glavo prebiti zid.

POSEBNE ZNACILNOSTI

Ceprav vsak shar pei razvije svojo osebnost, lahko opazimo nekatere specificnosti pasme:
• v svojem domovanju je cujec in vedno na prezi
• je nadpovprecno inteligenten
• njegov karakter je tezko dojemljiv
• njegovo trenutno razpolozenje se mu odraza na obrazu
• redko ali nikoli pokaze uzaljenost ali zamerljivost

NEGA

Dnevno krtacenje z gumijasto rokavico ali mehko scetko bo psu godilo in pomagalo k boljsi prekrvavitvi. Odsvetujemo prepogosto kopanje, zadostuje ze cist prostor za spanje in redno krtacenje.

History ...

The Shar Pei is an ancient breed of dogs, once limited only to the Far East. After the war between two brothers CHIANG KAI CHEK and MAO TSE TUNG and with the beginning of the revolution in the late sixties the breed was facing extinction. Breeders in Hong Kong and the USA have succeeded in preserving all the qualities of the original representatives of the breed. The first Chinese Shar Pei arrived from the USA to Europe in the year 1978. A judicial couple Linda Reinelt Gebauer and Joachim Weinberg have imported it into Germany. Linda Reinelt was also the first breeder of Shar Peis in Europe.

Preserved pictures and monument tell us, that the Shar Pei dogs lived in temples and as watchdogs and family dogs in the countryside. They were also used for boar hunting.


Shar Pei is a solid, square built, compact dog of medium height and weight, with a broad profile and a short body. Head is enlarged in comparison with the body in resembles a hippopotamus. Shar Peis have short and rigid fur and the skin loosely covers the body and the head. He has a typical scissors bite. The special feature of the breed is it's blue tongue and the inside of the mouth. The skin of the pups is very folded with the appearance of an oversize sweater. With age the wrinkles soothe out, they are only obligatory on the head and allowed on the neck. Shar Peis are kind, watchful and clean and so very appropriate family dogs.

CHARACTER AND BEHAVIOUR

The Chinese Shar Pei is a very attentive, active, vivacious and clean dog. He will have no trouble fitting into the family life. He is devoted and loyal but craves attention. He's inclined to exaggerating and will demand as much love as he is giving to his owners. He is pretty reserved when it comes to strangers. Shar Pei is a smart dog and learns quickly but still sometimes appears totally ignorant.

SPECIAL CHARACTERISTICS

Even though every Shar Pei develops it's own personality we can observe some common traits of the breed:

*In his home he is always alert and on the lookout

*He is extremely intelligent

*His personality is hard to grasp

*His mood is always projected on his face

*He seldom or never shows taking offence or resentment

CARE

Daily brushing with a rubber glove or a soft brush will suit the dog and better his bloodflow. We do not encourage bathing the dog too often. A clean sleeping space and regular brushing will suffice.
