Sharpay (puppy): photo, care, shar pei puppy food
It is difficult to walk past small puppies. Lovely kolobochki so funny yapping and playing, that I want to immediately take myself one, and even two of them. However, among all breeds, sharpei is particularly prominent. His puppy is a folded miracle, in which one will not fall in love simply impossible. He does not resemble any other representative of the canine world, and therefore, probably, is unusually popular among dog breeders. Today we will talk in more detail about the peculiarities of caring for the representatives of this breed.
At first glance, these dogs are clumsy and clumsy, but at the same time very funny. And not all of them can be called a sofa. There are quite sports and active shar pei, but they are all like one - lovely and very affectionate with their masters. Never this dog will not harm even a small child, allowing him to go through his soft folds for as long as he wants.
Sharpei - the puppy is very attractive externally. It is in babies that the folds are particularly pronounced. If you raise the crumbs on the palms, the heavy wrinkles will even hang a little from them. It is they who provide the breed with incredible popularity.
A little bit about the history of the breed
Sharpay the puppy is already characterized from an early age by impeccable manners, he resembles a well-bred, wise and emotional Chinese. This breed is so ancient that its roots are intertwined with the history of the Celestial Empire during the reign of the Qin Dynasty.
Returning to the outstanding folds, it should be said that they appeared not without reason and do not serve for beauty at all. First of all, shar pei was excreted as a fighting breed, and deep soft wrinkles are needed in order to protect internal organs from damage.
In Chinese, the word "shar pei" means "sand skin". Indeed, hard and short fur combined with subcutaneous fat is a reliable barrier to any attacker.
However, one should not be afraid of the fighting past of your pet, this page in the history of the breed has long been crossed out. If earlier the breeders were selected to reproduce the offspring of the most aggressive individuals and cultivated these traits, today such dogs, on the contrary, are excluded from breeding, raising a calm companion.
Together with the fighting, the need to display maximally folded individuals has become a thing of the past. Despite the fact that it is very beautiful and unusual, in this ex-terrier there are also minuses.
Sharpay is a puppy that requires increased care and special nutrition. He is prone to allergic reactions, the consequences of which are very difficult to cure due to the fact that in skin folds any bacterium feels like in a greenhouse, and therefore it breeds at a tremendous speed.
In place of chic, plush dogs came dogs more dry type. Today this is a whole trend in the activities of breeders and it leads to the fact that on the streets appear higher on the paws, fry dogs that have folds only on the muzzle and along the back (in some representatives they are saved only on the forehead). Of course, this is more practical, the dog becomes less susceptible to various dermatological diseases, but from an aesthetic point of view, unfortunately, it loses much.
The dogs described are relatively small, but if you need a sofa cushion, then you are clearly making the wrong choice. Sharpeya puppies (the photo of these enchantresses creates an illusory impression of sleepy deer) is an inexhaustible source of energy. This is a very mobile, energetic and sociable dog, gentle and sweet with the owners and not getting along well with neighbors on the paddock. She will certainly try to fight with someone, and often with great damage to herself.
Features of the bite, the structure of the jaws, which are covered with luxurious folds around the mouth - all this once made the battle as safe as possible for the rivals, and at the same time, spectacular. Therefore, provoking a different breed of dog, sharpei obviously does not count on its strength.
For sure you will be surprised by the color of the language of this dog. Sharpeya puppies (photo below) is the exact opposite of all other representatives of the canine world. This is a gentle, folded miracle with a blue tongue and almond-shaped, dark eyes that always look a little gloomy from under the folds. His ears are small and dense, triangular in shape.
Character and intellect
Do not start this dog soft and timid people. Sharpie puppies from the youngest age perfectly understand who the master is in the house and will definitely try to rule. But it should be noted that they are completely devoid of aggressiveness towards a person.
They are very obedient and patient, intelligent and loyal. Sharpei has a slightly gloomy look, but this is only a wrapper behind which a good and sociable creature hides. But do not expect that this dog will happily fulfill all your whims. Sharpei seeks independence and will always be guided by his own considerations.
Sharpie puppies need early socialization, otherwise their pugnacious nature can then serve you badly. Ideally suitable for this site at the club of dog breeding, where the cynologist regularly conducts classes. Correctly bred, these dogs are very intelligent creatures with a delicate but firm character. They are brave and brave and in a matter of seconds they can make a decision and act according to it.
These dogs can be kept in the apartment. They are small, but also very responsible. Left alone, the Sharpei house will not bite furniture and foul, but will wait for you from work. However, in solitude these dogs are very sad and bored.
But it should be noted that these dogs are very capricious and picky in eating. Some shar pei have a very selective appetite, that is, they choose one or two types of food, and do not touch the rest. By the way, some representatives of this breed in general is very difficult to feed at least something.
Before talking, what to feed the shar pei puppy, it should be noted that it is possible to improve his appetite due to normal physical activity, regular walks and training. However, if the pet refuses to eat, despite the famine, you need to offer something else.
These dogs are very sensitive to the quality and composition of the feed, so you need to choose only the best. They can not be overfed, otherwise they will turn into sluggish and lazy creatures. Propensity to allergies also dictates their own conditions - you can not change the power system too often.
Dry food and natural food
So, the best food for shar pei puppies is a specialized dry mix with additives, vitamins and minerals. Necessarily - a premium food, for example, Purina. It is best used from the month to the year and a half. And before reaching six months of age, the food should be soaked.
The growth rate of this breed is very high, therefore, inadequate nutrition will necessarily lead to irreversible pathologies of development. Doctors-breeders recommend giving the dog one cup of fodder for 3 kg of weight. Puppy for a week should gain about a kilogram, before recruiting a full weight.
Up to 3 months, babies are fed three times a day, then transferred to a two-time meal. Cannery it is better not to give, as a fastidious creature can completely switch to them. Or carefully mix the drying with canned food. But the scraps from the table, pork and chicken on the bone, the dog can not be fed.
After one and a half years the dog can be transferred to natural forages. Ideally, it can be beef and chicken, several types of vegetables and cereals. All food should be dry or thick. Liquid soups are not allowed. A couple of times a week you can offer the dog eggs, kefir or fish.
Features of care
Care for sharieem (puppy) is reduced to regular feeding and walking. Every day he needs to be in the fresh air for at least one hour, twice a day. Walking should be active - running or fast walking (better in the hill), playing with the ball. A great option is a bike trip.
Care involves combing the hair, about once a week, as well as bathing. I must say that the shar pei can not tolerate water, but once a month it is necessary. But do not use soap. After bathing, carefully dry all wrinkles, so as not to have an allergy.
