Shar Pei

a medium-sized, compact dog with distinctive, loose skin that forms many deep wrinkles over the entire body, particularly on the large head. The ears are small and the small eyes are almost hidden in the skin folds. There are two types of coat; one is very short and harsh, the other is slightly longer and brushy. The breed is predisposed to a variety of skin disorders and entropion, all associated with the skin folds, and a familial renal amyloidosis.
