Miniatura Shar Pei

Shar-Pei are intelligent dogs needing little training. Although they are somewhat aloof, snobbish and reserved in the presence of strangers, they are extremely loyal and devoted to their family. Essentially they are an independent, regal, alert, dignified, animal with a calm and confident stature. Being an exceptionally intelligent dog makes the Shar-Pei an ideal companion. Whether your intention is to exhibit at conformation shows, participate in obedience trials, or just to own a loving, loyal pet, the Shar-Pei is sure to bring great satisfaction. They enjoy both the open spaces of a country life and the suburban neighbourhood life. They are equally happy indoors as out. They excel at obedience work and delight in pleasing their owners, which makes them a pleasure to train. Shar-Pei have been called the Chinese Fighting dog, this is a misnomer of sorts as they are not a dog that will savagely seek out disputes with other animals, they will, however, retaliate with fervour should they be aggravated.

Obsidion Pugs

One of the most consistent winning pug kennels in Australia since 1984.

Pugs absolutely love to be with people and so you will find that they are an excellent companion dog.The Pug is a very charming little dog who is very playful and outgoing. In fact, they’re often described as having a clownish personality. They are also very intelligent and can be quite independent, but they are great with kids but like all other animals, you will need to supervise children and Pugs when they are together. The Pug is best suited to owners that are looking for a small dog with loads of charm and personality.
