Chinese Shar-Pei Temperament & My Husband

Chinese Shar-Pei Temperament & My Husband

Chinese Shar-Pei Personality

The Chinese Shar-Pei is typical of many Asian dog breeds. Suspicious of strangers, but fiercely loyal when they decide someone is worthy of their trust. The breed standard for the Chinese Shar-Pei, as written by the Chinese Shar-Pei Club of America states the temperament to be: 

Temperament:Regal, alert, intelligent, dignified, lordly, scowling, sober and snobbish essentially independent and somewhat standoffish with strangers, but extreme in his devotion to his family. The Shar-Pei stands firmly on the ground with a calm, confident stature.

The American Kennel Club has this to add:

Shar-Pei are strong, regal, independent guardians famous for intelligence and loyalty. They are suspicious of strangers and other dogs. Shar-Pei are serene dogs, but they will meet a perceived threat with tenacity and vigor. Early training and socialization are essential—a dominant adult Shar-Pei without them is a serious problem waiting to happen. -AKC American Kennel Club

All of this quoting of the Chinese Shar-Pei temperament has a reason. Back in the late 80s/early 90s I shared my life with a few lovely Shar-Pei. When I moved to Minnesota in 1997, I hired a guy to help me move my stuff from storage into my rental home. I told him not to pet the sweet looking Shar-Pei girl as she was very distrustful of strangers. Later in the day I turned around and she was in his lap licking him. Yeah, I married him. That's how I met my husband.

Ah, the philosophy of the Solipsistic dog can be debated for hours, as Solipsistic followers are ever-so prone to do. It is one of those "how many angels can dance on the head of a pin" type mindsets.
