Breeds: Shar Pei
Olivia is a full blooded Shar-Pei puppy who was surrendered to one of our volunteers from a breeder: she is a 15 pound ball of fire .
Always on the go and I mean always! And happy to greet all of her canine and human friends.
However, Olivia has no manners with introductions , so some dogs don’t take her friendly cues as play and small children she would knock down trying to say hello . So it’s mandatory she takes some puppy obedience classes. And no small children for her.
Shar-Peis can be very aloof animals and are not for first time dog owners. Breed experience would be a plus but not a must as long as you educate yourself on the breed.
Early socialization at this age with so many different people and animals helps to mold them into better canine citizens but you cannot take away her breed traits.
She’s a natural protector and this little girl wants nothing more than to please her people.
She is fully crate trained and almost full house trained . Knows sit and we’re working on down.
If her foster did not have a full dog household, Olivia wouldn’t be leaving. But we want the absolute best for her. To be in a home where she’s somebody center of attention and for her to have the world is what she deserves.

PLEASE - Think long and hard before adopting a puppy - consider the lifestyle change this puppy will come with - he cannot be crated for more than 3-4 hours at a time until he’s older, puppy proofing your home will be necessary, puppies scratch and nip so if you have small children, can they handle this?? Training will be so important in this puppy’s life, do you have the time??
Please consider purchasing this book before adopting. Perfect Puppy in 7 Days - How to Start Your Puppy Off Right, Sophia Yin, DVM - it is an amazing book that we recommend very highly and have had amazing feedback on.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION -
Paws New England is a foster-based rescue - our dogs reside in various locations throughout the south and New England.
Adoption donations cover pre-adoption vet costs (including vaccinations, spay/neuter when age appropriate, and heartworm testing/treatment when necessary), a microchip, and transportation to New England if necessary.
Donations for our young, healthy puppies and dogs support their fellow canines of advanced age or suffering from injuries and abuse whose donations are reduced but whose veterinary costs are typically much higher. We appreciate your understanding that your newly adopted dog will help others in need.
