Beginning my series of #peopleanddogseries @jessicanunex was the first to reply. This series is intended to show peoples love for their dogs, here’s Jessica’s story of her beloved Shar Pei’s.

.

Athena (brown colored) is a 4 year old female and the first Shar Pei she owned. Having encountered other Shar Pei’s, Jessica disliked their prickly coats but her husband convinced her to “just look” into one. After some searching, the last pup of a litter she found without a “prickly coat” was the one they brought home.

.

Realizing early her pup didn’t trust people, it was important for Athena to be socialized and since Jessica worked at a vet clinic at the time, taking her to work for socialization was ideal. Athena still has trust issues but will do anything for food as she’s known as a “fatty” at home.Typical of Shar Pei’s, she doesn’t like dogs that are her size or bigger and hates cats but ironically loves little dogs.

The blue Shar Pei is named Blue. He’s a 3 year old male who was a surprise Valentines gift from Jessica’s husband, believing that Athena needed a friend they brought him home and has become part of their family. Jessica feels he is more trust worthy of people even though he wasn’t socialized in the same manner and is considered more a people lover that loves to cuddle. He too doesn’t like dogs his size or bigger but is fine with smaller dogs.

They are absolutely loved and well cared for and as Jessica stated, since “I don’t have kids of my own they are my kids”
