Shar-Pei Picture - Gee

Brody (previously Gee adopted 2013) has obviously made himself at home . From his Mom: A full belly, a two mile walk at the park and a nap on his favorite couch. Life is good! (His head was hanging so low I was worried he would topple off the couch but he slept for an hour).


Shar Pei Pictures - Delilah

Delilah waited patiently for me to take her home; she was with her foster Mom for about 11 months before she made her way here.   Delilah is absolutely perfect and carries herself like a champion; it‘s an enigma that no one else took her.   I call it fate!   When the timing was right, she found me!  I can‘t even express how truly blessed I am that she did!   The thing I enjoy most about Delilah is how she has taken over the dining room (it has the best view of the squirrels outside).   She will go around the house, collecting toys, and spread them out in her room.   It makes me laugh when I see Delilah sitting at the window, surrounded by lots of toys!  We play everyday until she walks away!  I always let her win, but I get so much out of it.  I love Delilah with all my heart and I hope that we have many happy, healthy years together!   Here‘s to Happei Beginnings!

And she is quite the fashionista!  You‘ve come along way Daisy!

In October 2011, I picked up a 50 pound, fawn, male, bouncing Shar-Pei named Monti from my contact at Shar-Pei Rescue of Virginia in Williamsburg, Virginia.  On the drive back to our home in Midlothian, Virginia, he was renamed Brody (for Chief Brody, slayer of Jaws) and we have lived happily together ever since!  He loves to ride in the car, play ball and he is very sociable with people and other dogs.   He goes to work with me almost every day and when he does stay at home, my co-workers are extremely disappointed!   We went to Emerald Isle in North Carolina last month (photo above) and he loved it!  Thank you Shar-Pei Rescue of Virginia for bringing Brody to my life - he is wonderful!!
