My mom called me the other day... And I guess one of her husbands coworkers dog ended up having puppies...
APPARENTLY... This is the story. They were boarding the dogs onto an airline(not sure why - all information is second hand), and stated to the airline people NOT to place the dogs together because the female was in heat. The airline was apparently the people that crated the dogs together(do they do that? I thought we had to crate our dogs ourselves at airports?) and the dogs managed to tie, clearly and now they have a dog who just had a litter of puppies.
Pit Bull/Shar Pei... Oh boy.
Now, my moms owned Pit Bulls all her life and done a fantastic job with them. NONE have popped up with any of the issues(dog aggression, etc), she's always had them fixed, and raised them with her family, etc. I grew up with many of them. That said... She has NEVER owned a Shar Pei and knows next to nothing about them.
What's the good, the bad and the ugly? I know Pit Bulls... What I'm curious about is what bad traits could mix together in these pups... and good traits too.
The reason she's asking is her husband is dead set on wanting to take one of the pups(but he's also the idiot that ruined Maya) and even brought home pictures to try to entice her and so far, she's held firm... but I know my mom and she LOVES dogs(even if she's not a great owner). They live on a farm on eight acres(not fenced), and already own an intact male Rottweiler that's well over a hundred pounds of muscular puppy(he's almost three and he's HUGE and still acts like a puppy).
Anyway.. Yeah... bad situation imo.... But all I can do is discourage her to get it...
