I think the puppies are adorable but all of my experience with this particular breed was not good
I know that it is owners that make there dogs bad but I also think you have to be very careful with this breed line. I have seen some very aggressive Sharpeis. One used to live next door to us and I couldnt let any of my dogs out unatteneded as it would bull dose under my neighbors chain link fence to try to kill them. They are very determined. My cousin had one that was very stubborn and snappy. They could not contain him with an underground fence system as he would just run right through it and he did not like anyone and had chased quite a few neighbors before they finally had to rehome him. I had a lady tell me at PetsMart that hers was nice and dog friendly and the next thing I knew he had bitten my dogs nose when he tried to greet him. The list goes on.
I am not saying that all of this breed is bad but I am saying that if you decided to get one then make sure you buy from a very reputable breeder that knows their lines and does health testing. Make sure you meet parents and grand parents if possible so you can see the temperment and also get references and maybe even speak to the vet of the parents
Also not that it means anything but the Chinese Sharpei is basically a Chinese Pitbull in a sense. They were bred to fight as our pits were. I believe they are nicknamed the Chinese fighting dog?
