This handsome man is Wesley, a 6 year old Shar-Pei mix. Wesley came to us terrified and shut down after being on his own for what appeared to be quite a while. It took lots of time, patience, and yummy snacks, but he has rewarded us by dropping his defenses and showing us his loving, silly self. Once he knows and trusts you, he wants your attention and affection, and begs for all the rubs and snuggles he can get. And Wesley LOVES toys, especially those that move and/or make noise. He will keep you entertained for as long as the energy holds out by chasing toys around on the floor and barking at them, almost to the point of being too excited and focused on them for his own good, but he can typically be distracted away by a tasty treat. We are recommending an adopter who is very experienced with the breed, as Wesley's behavior becomes much grumpier during new and stressful situations, especially vet visits. He seems to want to be friends with some dogs, but can be a bit unpredictable in his reaction to them. He is just too much for kitty friends, and due to his intensity with food and toys, we believe he needs a home with adults only. Wesley is not a dog friend for just anyone, but for the right person, he will be an absolute delight.
