|I am wondering why all of the puppy mills/bybs/pet stores are suddenly breeding all of these Shar-Pei mixes. I've seen three or four different mixes of this breed advertised in the last few months. It just seems like an uncommon breed for this area anyway - I wonder if they are all coming from the same person?
I'm thinking they were just trying to get the cute Shar-Pei wrinkles, face, and ears in a smaller size, so they could give it a cute name and sell more. Plus, I know a few people might be turned off by the Shar-Pei breed if they found out they were once bred for fighting - this way the pet store person can say, "No, it's not a Shar-Pei, it's a Borio!" or something else that will make the customer buy it.
I hope the ad did not mean "Borzoi." The puppy in the photo clearly had a Shar-Pei face - if the "breeder" thought it was a Borzoi, they were way off.
