The Shar-Pei and Pug hybrid dogs are usually playful and friendly. This breed is known to be laid-back and sociable to all ages. They have short, smooth, and soft coats that are low maintenance and minimal-shedding. They usually come in cream, black, grey, and brown colors. They are brachycephalic or short-nosed and do not thrive well in extreme hot or cold weather.
Origin of the Ori Pei
The Ori Pei is the hybrid created by crossing the Pug and Shar-Pei, which are both ancient Chinese canine breeds. It was first bred in North America by the breeder named Aaron Silver during the 1970s. He did this to develop a smaller version of the Shar-Pei and tried to eliminate most of its health issues. This breed is also called Ori Pei, Sharpug, or Pugpei.
