Absolute cuteness overload coming your way!!! Everyone welcome Oliver who is the newest Warrior to join our family.
I bet his cute face got you good without you even knowing he can’t see because of very poor breeding. Shar Pei’s are a beautiful breed that are known to be high maintenance, and need a lot of medical throughout their lives. The family who purchased him thought they were going to a good breeder, and was told his eyes would open later on in life. Thinking this was odd but maybe normal to the breed, they didn’t realize it was a load of crap until months later when this boys eyes still weren’t open. The breeder even showed “registered” paperwork that was found out later to be completely fraudulent, and he scammed this family for a sale. He knew Oliver’s genetics were horrible but the sale was more important then disclosing any information.
We will be having Oliver see specialists to see if we can surgically do anything to help him see. There is a possibility that his eyes wont even have vision if we were to remove some skin to try and open them. (If that is a possibility) but we are going to explore all options to see if we can safely help this guy any way we can.
Oliver is a miniature Shar Pei which makes him even more desirable. Im sure the breeder knew cuteness overload is strategic to sell these medical dogs for high prices, without people even realizing what they were signing up for. Please research breeds thoroughly before purchasing. Research the breeder, the paperwork or anything they are telling you. Oliver’s family loved him so much but his needs exceeded what they were able to provide for him. If the breeder was truthful they wouldn’t of gotten him, which would of allowed another family with more experience to get him and give him the help he needs.
We will do everything we possibly can to safely help this boy as best as we can. Oliver is not even a year old yet, and has a whole great life ahead of him.
Oliver will need surgery on his eyes in hopes to save them. Every donation helps us to give him the best care possible.
