Ooooh, if you like a wrinkly face you're going to love Shay
Shay wasn't in the best condition when he arrived at the Home. His coat is a little unkempt, and he is slightly lame on his back leg, which he tends to carry when he's on the move
And even when he's standing still, snuffling the ground, which he does a lot!
The Council asked us to cover the costs of xrays and investigations, but apart from some inflammation and general soreness, the vets weren't able to pinpoint anything in particular which could account for the tenderness in Shay's leg, so we're hoping that he'll be back to full-health after a few days of soothing meds and gentle exercise
Shay is very affectionate, and has a penchant for pate. He was happy to show us his best 'sit' for a bit of the good stuff
But maybe due to the tenderness in his leg, he seemed to prefer to lie down for his treats
Either way, he has the gentlest mouth, and Shay was very careful to make sure there were no teeth on skin. Good boy Shay!
Shay isn't a full shar pei, as evidenced by his little pink tongue! Shar peis normally have black tongues. Not being a full breed definitely isn't a bad thing though, as lots of pedigree pei's suffer from health issues associated with poor breeding practices and a limited gene pool.
If you'd like to meet Shay please phone the Dogs' Home: 029 2071 1243 or visit Cardiff Dogs' Home, Westpoint Industrial Estate, Penarth Road, open 7 days a week, 10.30 - 4pm.

Good evening I'm Shay and if I have to be precise I'm a flowered Shar Pei 💛💛 I've been out with Alex a few times now and I thought she had already told you about me? What she playing at she's getting so slow lately 😂😂 Al says I'm one of the most affectionate Shar Peis she's come across as sometimes we can be a little sassy hehehehe. Not me I am a loveable cuddle monster with a squishy face😙😙 Always remember don't pat me on the head as I can't see you with fat rolls, keep your hand in front so I can see hehe 😙😙😙 I love treats, people, I'm not fussed or arsed about other dogs, and I love cuddles. Lots of love Shay 💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛
Shay pei!!! Lovely boy with the saddest face! It took him a while to decide he wanted to walk, we took the longest time to get out onto the main road, but then he picked up his pace and seemed a little happier. What's not to love? No issues that I could see and such a sweet boy. Someone must have some room for a wrinkley?? 🐾😘🐾
