Adopt a Shar-Pei
Ruby and Cool Joe
Please let me introduce myself and my “other” half. I am Ruby, and my partner is Cool Joe. Our story is, as usual, a sad one. The good news is that we never had to go into a shelter, but that is only because our foster family was able to take us into their program before our previous ill equipped owner dumped us at a shelter. She claims we like to chew on cars. Yes, you read it correctly, she says we chew on cars. My foster mom says in her 25+ years of rescuing Pei, she has never heard of this excuse used by someone wanting to give up her dogs. I don’t think our foster parents believe we did such a thing-why would we? Why would we even have access to cars? The whole thing doesn’t make any sense, even to us. So for those of you who have inquiring minds, now you why we are where we are.
Now, a little bit about us. Cool Joe is about four years old and a very handsome cream horsecoat. I guess I’m not impartial since he has been my significant other since I joined him when I was a puppy. I’m not sure why this person got a second dog when she could not properly take care of Cool Joe, but that’s what some of you humans do. At this point, I am not complaining because I love him dearly and depend on him for companionship, and, yes, love. We are so hoping that there might be someone out there who will want two Pei who are totally bonded.
I recently had puppies because our previous owner “didn’t know that would happen” even though it had already happened once before, and I am only about two years old. One of my most recent puppies was given away to someone at the dog park at about 2.5 weeks old. I can only hope that he is ok. My other baby is in a wonderful foster home and getting the best of care. I wish I could have given them what they needed, but I developed an infection that required antibiotics, and I was no longer allowed to care for them. Or at least that’s what our previous owner said. Although none of this was my fault, I miss my babies and wish I could have done better by them.
I will need eye surgery in the near future, and I will be spayed at the same time so there will be no more “accidents”. That is about a month away. I am a fawn brushcoat, although my coat is a little “rough” right now. I will be beautiful soon enough, inside and out. We are both very loving “kids” and so badly want to stay together. We’ve been through so much already, please consider adopting us as a couple. I promise you won’t be sorry. All we want is someone to love us and provide us with the loving home we so deserve. We have so much to live for.
Thank you for reading our story. We hope there is someone out there who will provide the “happy ending” for it.
