Age

They can open their eyes anywhere from about 10 days to as late as 3 weeks.

I take the first puppy pictures at 4 weeks. I try to refresh them every 10 days or so, since the puppies change so much.

Puppies cannot be shipped at less than 8 weeks old, but new owners often come to select a puppy and place a deposit at an earlier age.

I vaccinate all my puppies at six, nine, twelve, fifteen and eighteen weeks old (or until they leave). I usually insist that they be a minimum of nine weeks so they get two vaccinations. I prefer to keep them until they are twelve weeks old in order to get in three rounds.

"Photo by Bruce G. Holcomb. Our family was searching for a pet quality Shar-Pei and found our perfect little guy at Baggins Kennels! Aesthetically he was beautiful, his blue-green eyes gorgeous, his apricot coat soft with lots of wrinkles…but most impressive to us was his temperament. Such a loving, sweet puppy, very smart and bonded immediately to our family. He became housebroken quickly learning how to ring his bell to go outside by 9 weeks. His eagerness and ability to learn commands is amazing and understands 6 hand signals at 3 months old. He’s full of love and is the love of our lives! We couldn’t be happier with Baggins Kennels that they offer such high quality Shar-Peis. They seem to breed for temperament, health and intelligence whether you’re looking for show or pet quality. It’s tempting to add another to our family!"
