Wow, best of luck to you and him. Did he explain what motivated him in the first place and why a Sharpei? Just wondering what his explanations were. I worked with a lady (we were both vet techs) and she had several Sharpeis at once and through the years. Still does have several. They killed her cat. She can never have cats again but is ok with that. They can be quite aggressive if not socialized properly, and hers were, believe it or not. They get into fights all the time. They have the problems with the rolling in of the eyelids (entropion) which requires surgery. If they are really wrinkled they can get staph and yeast infections in the folds. That being said, I have also known some nice Sharpeis that were not too wrinkly and did not have the eye problems and had lovely temperaments. Mostly those were pseudo Sharpeis, with a not completely pure background. Having bought off the internet, maybe he'll luck into one of these Sharpei mixes that seem to have a few less issues. One can only hope the pup is really old enough to be shipped and survive the trip.
Please keep us posted on his story.
JK
