Shar Pei patiently waits for the child to play in a puddle. The researchers call China the birthplace of the Shar Pei. During the excavation of ancient tombs, archaeologists found many clay figurines of dogs with the characteristics of the breed — numerous folds on the body and frowning, as though resentful face.
Findings have led to the conclusion that the breed is about three thousand years. But the origin of the Shar-Pei is no consensus. Equally convincing some scientists argue that Sharpe are descended from the ancient mastiffs, the other – from the smooth-haired variety Chow. In Ancient China, the Shar Pei was used as a hunting, guard and even fight the rock.
