Rescue Me ID: 18-05-11-00106Coral (female)

Shar-Pei    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    It has been quite a journey for this stunning beauty. Coral had been picked up as a stray by an animal control. She was a mess, half of her body was missing hair, she was read and itchy. Her eyes were entropian, a condition where the eye lashes grow inwards causing a constant irritation to the eyes. On top of that she was very pregnant. Poor Coral, yet despite her condition she has always been a little champ, so sweet and loving. When she came to rescue she delivered 6 little pups, that were too sick and did not make it. Well, now it was Coral's time to get the care she needed and it has taken her months to reach this point where she is ... (Read More)finally adoptable. Coral has gained some much needed weight, her skin has cleared and she has a fantastic horse hair coat. She LOVES to run and play in the yard, loves attention and will greet everyone with a little smile on her face, such a sweetheart. But, sadly we did find out on top of everything else Coral is heartworm positive and has begun treatment. She has her whole life ahead of her, plenty of good things to come. She is an amazing girl, you would never know she had suffered such mistreatment and hardships in her life, she just amazes us. She has a little funny face she makes when we stroke her soft velvet like cheeks, she makes the funniest little smirk, she is quit the character! Coral can go to her new home with her medication for her heartworm treatment and we will follow up and recheck her in 6 months. Coral is about 36 pounds, 5 years old. Her adoption fee is $250. Please email Kristine at (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 18-04-19-00341Lola the Love Bug (female)

Shar-Pei Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Lola is a very sweet dog. She is 7 years old and very healthy. She has been fixed and we just had her shots done up to date. We love Lola very much and are heartbroken to have to find her a new home. We have to move due to my husband's job - the corporate housing will not allow dogs. She is an awesome companion - good with kids, friendly with other dogs, and very accepting with visitors. She loves going to the dog park and enjoys her walks. She is great on a leash. She is house broken and very well behaved. We are really hoping to find her a home with people who will appreciate what an amazing dog she is. She is a love bug! If you ... (Read More)can offer her a loving home, please reach out. We are looking forward to hearing from you. P.S. She weighs 60 pounds. The photos is when she was a puppy. We are happy to send new photos of her if you would like to see them. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 18-02-25-00368Sunny (female)

Shar-Pei Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Sunny is a beautiful, sweet and snuggly, friendly, active, and youthful ten-year-old, 59-pound (chubby), female Shar Pei-mix looking for a loving guardian. Sunny has the plushest coat which makes her so nice to cuddle with. She absolutely loves people and gives kisses. Sadly, she spent the last five years in an all-breed shelter where she was passed up over and over again. Since then she has been transferred to Pei Land Shar Pei Rescue! She was never socialized with other dogs at her past shelter, but she's learning slowly to get along with others. So, she could possibly live with another dog - on a case-by-case basis. She loves being ... (Read More)pet, but doesn't like her butt touched. For that reason, she is best in a home with adults and teenagers; no small children. We wonder whether Sunny was abused before her initial rescue. She is very healthy, spayed, de-wormed, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped and heartworm-tested negative. Her adoption fee of $150 benefits the rescued pets of Pei Land Rescue in Plano, Illinois. To meet and possibly adopt Sunny, please contact Jen at or 630-553-7829. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-03-05-00401Bruno (male)

Shar-Pei Mix    Age: Young Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Saved from an abandoned apartment in New York, these two could really use some help finding their forever home. Thank you to everyone who helped on their journey to Chicago. Tonka 4 years old and Bruno 3 years old are mother and son. They are now spayed and neutered and up to date on shots. They are so sweet and would just appreciate some love and attention. We will adopt separately, but ideally our goal is to keep this pair together. Please share these adorable pups and let's find them a family willing to open their home and hearts %BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD

Shar-Pei Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Piper was rescued from a high kill shelter, as a sick puppy. She was adopted and then returned as a 2 year old dog. They said she had been living in a crate in the garage for months as they didn't have time for her and she was too boisterous around the girlfriends 18 month old baby. She has now been waiting another year here for a home. :( She has a very sensitive personality, shy with strangers and bold with people she knows. She pulls on a leash and had no formal training, other then they said she was housebroken and she is crate trained. She is good with cats, seems to play too rough for what most dogs like. We currently have her ... (Read More)kenneled with a robust bully lab mix and he thinks she is a bit much, but tolerates her. She is energetic. She is very intelligent and would need someone with experience training for an incredible best friend. She has a typical shar pei horse coat. Vet clinic's phone number you use currently, or in the past is required to adopt for a reference. We have 8 rescued dogs of all sizes, all praying for a real home! (Less)
