A medium to large-sized dog, the Shar-Pei are deceptively athletic, mostly because of their wrinkly skin. They have a big, round head with a short, powerful looking muzzle. Their eyes look sunken back into their head and their ears are barely discernible amongst the wrinkly waves running across their head. Their fur is short and somewhat prickly, but not painfully so. They can be found in two varieties: wrinkly all over, or wrinkly just on the head.
