Thank you for your interest in adopting a rescue Chinese Shar Pei.
The dogs available for adoption are screened for temperament and health. Although the dog’s background is generally unknown we have done our best to assure a well-tempered, healthy dog. All dog’s have been given their vaccinations, and unless very young, have been spayed or neutered. Although, we cannot guarantee that there are no problems with the dogs in rescue, we have done our very best to assure that each dog in the program is a good candidate for a new family. We want our dogs and our adopting families to be happy with the placement.
The following application is very important to helping us make the right match between dog and new “parent”. We, therefore, reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to turn down an application. By submitting this application whether my mail, in person or via the Internet, you are giving us permission to check the references listed and demonstrating your sincere interest in pursing the adoption of a dog from our rescue program.
