|Our dogs love to sleep on Kuranda Dog beds, but we don't have enough for everyone. If you would like to donate a bed at a special wholesale price for one of our rescues to sleep in comfort, please click here.
Who We AreWe live in a small rural town in southern middle Tennessee and got involved in Shar Pei rescue purely by accident . We bought a pei puppy (Chief) for our adult son for Christmas ten years ago and then a year later we bought a female, thinking we would 'make babies.' Well, we soon discovered, thanks to the shar pei listserves, that there are way too many homeless pei in this world. So we had both Chief and Ginger altered. We adopted our first rescue from Dominion Shar Rescue Club in Virginia Beach, VA. Since then we have become involved in rescue and fostering. We are members of the Chinese Shar Pei Rescue Club of America, Rescue A Shar Pei (RASP) and Shar Pei Savers. We work closely with all these organizations.
Adopting a friendMost of the dogs have been in our care for a period of time which allows us to assess their temperament. We make every attempt to match the dogs personality with your family situation. For example, if you have small children and a cat, we will be sure that any dog you consider will get along with both. We will also ask you questions about the size of your yard and fencing, where you will keep the dog, why you want a dog and whether you have owned a dog in the past. We want to make sure that when we find a home for a dog we can feel comfortable that the dog will be cared for and able to stay there for the rest of its life. This is the reason we screen prospective homes so carefully. We require that you sign a written adoption agreement that, among other things, requires that if you ever decide you can't keep the dog, for any reason, YOU MUST RETURN THE DOG TO US. We also require you to pay an adoption fee (usually $250) that will help cover our direct expenses. In addition, we love to hear about our adoptees from time to time and we encourage you to keep in touch and let us know how our friends are doing. We also love to get pictures!!
