Bear Coat Shar Pei Breeders
Bear Coat Shar Pei Breeders
The bear coat is a recessive gene, meaning it will only produce visual bear-coat dogs if both the sire and dam carry the gene, and even then the chances are statistically 1-in-4. The odds increase to 1-in-2 if one of the parents is a bear coat, and 1-in-1 if both parents are bear coats. The gene is a throw-back to when Shar-Peis were on the verge of extinction, and the few remaining specimens had to be cross-bred with other closely-related breeds in order for their survival. This explains why even now there is quite a diversity in the appearance of Shar-Pei dogs. The thick and long bear coat appears to be a trait carried through from the Chow Chow, and is still relatively rare to find
As of the time of writing, the bear coat is not acknowledged by the Kennel Club of Great Britain. This effectively implies that a Shar-Pei with a bear coat can not be displayed in championship UK dog shows, and is viewed by some as “sub-standard”. Indeed, I have noticed several websites that encourage people not to acquire bear coat Shar-Peis, or at least to only regard them as “pet quality”, and hence only pay rates equivalent to dogs not registered with the KCOGB. While this does currently have some validity to it, there are several additional aspects to take into account:
1. Rarity value. Bear Coat Shar Pei Breeders are still a somewhat scarce, but bear coat Shar-Peis are exceptionally rare. This means that someone who particularly wants an unusual dog (that is not an oddity) couldn’t do much better than a bear coat Shar-Pei.
3. The most compelling reason of all. Simply put, Shar-Pei with bear coats are adorable! Along with their adorable appearances, they have excellent temperaments – they are extremely calm, friendly, and affectionate. This makes them an excellent family pet and an excellent choice for anyone looking for a truly affectionate, truly unique, truly adorable dog! And, with a strong possibility of them being recognized as a standard by the KCOGB in the future, they’re ideal for anyone looking for a nearly unique dog with genuine show-winning potential.
If you want a Shar-Pei that you will definitely want to show, these adorable and extremely rare dogs are not for you until the KCOGB adds bear coats to their standard for Shar-Peis. Additionally, if you don’t want people constantly approaching you while you’re out walking your dog, bear coats are not for you. Otherwise, the only reason not to consider them is if you dislike them (which I can’t imagine anyone does).
They’re fluffy and adorably adorable. They have endearing creases and a teddy bear coat.
However, do not rush to the first place that advertises Shar-Pei puppies for sale!
These furballs require a great deal of care and attention, so before you take one on, you should arm yourself with all the facts.
To begin, you cannot have one as a show dog because they are disqualified from competition. This will be a solely companion dog.
This should not be a problem for many people, as the majority of dogs are kept as pets, and people are generally unconcerned about breed standards.
However, if you want to make this a successful venture, your Bear Coat Shar-Pei puppy will require a great deal of love, effort, and commitment.
Not only will you bear the financial burden of purchasing your puppy, but you will also bear the cost of vet bills for the first year or two (vaccinations, spaying/neutering, etc.) and possibly significant medical costs later (see the section on health problems).
Additionally, you must commit to training your dog, whether you do so yourself or enroll your dog in accredited training classes. The critical nature of training and socialization cannot be overstated!
The critical point to remember is that these adorable pups will grow up. They will not be gigantic, but they will grow in size. The adorable wrinkles will diminish as the dog matures into its skin.
This may seem self-evident, but dog shelters and rescue organizations are living proof that dogs quickly lose their appeal to some people once they are no longer puppies.
