Happy Ends

We are very proud of our hundreds of successful adoptions, and the many happy families that have returned to adopt from us again, and again, over the years.

Here are photos of some of our adopted kids. You can search by dog or family name.


Herman was adopted by Cody here in Northern CA as a companion for Birdie who was adopted from us previously.

Hi folks out there in Shar Pei land. My name is Herman, and I am from a shelter in Utah. I came to Redding needing attention for my skin and my eyes, and both of those concerns have been addressed. We are still working on getting my coat back to where it should be, but I think I'm looking pretty good. As you can see, I am a black horsecoat and quite handsome. I don't know why I ended up in a shelter, but I am grateful to the many guardian angels I had who helped me along in my journey to Redding. I am only about a year old so I have lots of energy. My eyes were so bad when I was rescued that we were not sure I would be able to see, but I'm happy to report that my vision is now good! I love to have fun and play-I'm really quite the comedian. Perhaps one of you reading this would like to see me in action. If that is the case, please fill out the application and fill in my name. Even if I'm not the right guy for you, lots of my friends here need good homes too so please consider one of them.

Roxanne has been adopted by Roger in the Sacramento area.

First, I must apologize for this photo-not the photographer's fault, but I recently had eye surgery to make me even more beautiful and help me to see better, and the sutures are still in from the surgery. As you can already tell, I am a very attractive fawn brushcoat girl who really likes to play! Maybe my playing helps to keep my weight down because I only weigh about 38 pounds, and I'm only about one year old. As far as looks go, mine can't be beat! I am very outgoing and affectionate, and I think I might like a brother to play with or I wouldn't mind being an only doggie. I came from a small shelter in rural Northern CA where I had been running loose for two to three weeks and had to be trapped. I can't tell you much more than that about my background because I can't remember and don't want to. I am happy to be here with others of my kind and being taken care of. I would, of course, like a home and family to call my own someday. If you think I might be a good match for you, please get in touch with my foster parents.


Louis has been adopted by the Sinsley family in Southern CA.

Hello all you Shar Pei fans out there-I'm Louis aka Lou Manchu. You may remember me from a couple of months ago at the rescue. I was placed, and I am still in my forever home, but I need to find a new forever home. It's not that my new parents don't love me-they do, and I can tell they do and that they have agonized over making the decision to give me up. They also told me that it's nothing that I have done. I get along with my Pei brother and sister, and I am very friendly to all people. It has to do with the unfortunate position that they find themselves in, and now is not the right time for them to be able to take care of me properly. This will not be easy for any of us, but sometimes things happen in our lives that we have no control over. I will be sad to leave but know it is for the best. Right now I am still in Southern CA for the next two weeks. Maybe there is a Pei lover in this area looking for a new best friend. If so, please feel free to get in touch with the folks in Redding so they can put you in touch with me. I am still the same good looking guy...

Kahlua has gone home to Susanville, CA, with Jeff and Susie

What big eyes I have-the better to see you with! I'm told I have the biggest eyes my foster parents have ever seen on a Shar Pei. It certainly means I was spared from the entropion surgery most of my friends here have had to endure. It also gives me a very special "look" that I think is quite endearing. I came from a shelter in Visalia, but I guess my look was not all that special to my previous owners because they had no interest in coming to get me. I am only about two years old and quite small at 35 pounds. I am friendly but cautious at first. I like to get to know people before I give my heart to them-it was broken once before, and it hurt. Once I know you, I am very playful and outgoing. I am definitely sweet and petite. If you think I might be the right match for you, please submit an application under my name, and I will happy to review it. Oh, by the way, my name is Kahlua.
