Onyx is a 2 year old shar pei that would love a great home of her own. She came to us with a family of shar peis from our Newark facility when their owner could no longer care for them. It's a good thing that Onyx was turned in, as she was suffering with severe entropion in both eyes, and had a skin infection. We sent her for surgery to correct her eyes and she's all cleaned up now and healthy, and she looks and feels like a brand new pup! Onyx has an air of aloofness about her, but please don't overlook her because of it. She only needs a few minutes to check you out, then she'll be playing with you, leaning against you for attention, and jumping in circles with happiness when you toss a toy for her. 

She is very well mannered, housebroken, and polite. She gets along with some dogs, but needs time to get to know them. She will need a home with older kids. Onyx is such a darling that would be ecstatic to be welcomed into your family. File#28446 8/24/18
