shar pei were originally bred for Dogfights in China. If a dog were to bite its neck from behind,the Shar Pei would still be able to turn around and bite it back because of its folding skin. >_>

I love these dogs, they're so adorable in a weird sort of way.

Here in Canada, they actually have plastic surgery for these sorts of dogs (shar-pei?) because their excess skin tends to droop over their eyes as they get older and impairs their vision, but it's not very common as far as I know. I'm not sure how I feel about this procedure... it's only a matter of time until someone gets it done for their dog for pure cosmetic reasons.

Definitely faving this. So cute!

He's very cute! :) This dog looks almost resigned, like he was just waiting for you to take the picture and get it over with.
