These dogs are great family dogs. When we purchased our first one over 30 years ago my 3 sons were 10,6,and 4. The first puppy I ever sold was to a couple with a 6 month old baby who learned how to walk by grabbing the dogs fur to pull herself up.

Temperament in dogs is very much an inherited trait.  After many generations of emphasizing temperament in my breeding program, Baggins Shar-Pei have some of the most gentle and playful dispositions in this already sociable breed.  In fact, my biggest problem in the show ring is that my dogs are so happy to be there and see all  the other dogs and the judge that they cannot stand still - wiggling and wagging their tails and wanting to jump on the judge and give kisses.

My dogs love their toys and beds so I hope she will have lots of playthings and soft cuddly beds in the rooms the family spends the most time in. I mention this as I have often been told by buyers that their previous shar-pei really did not play with anything. My puppies are introduced to toys and plenty of soft bedding from the start and they miss them.

"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!"
