Harvey is soft and warm to the touch, because it has skin with practically no wool.
The dog Harvey was lucky enough to be born Shar-Pei. The owner, Teresa Arguimbau, is crazy about her wrinkles.
Shar Pei’s ancestors were hunting and fighting dogs. Harvey is completely different and soft.
Wrinkles are the main value, but also Harvey’s problem. For example, when a puppy drinks water, he dives into the bowl with his head, the water penetrates into the folds, does not flow out if the mother dog doesn’t lick.
Another problem is vision. The skin around the eyes at birth is very sagging.
They had to put on staples to tighten the skin, but in Harvey’s case, they had to put in additional stitches. The baby has acquired vision, but its quality leaves much to be desired.
The dog loves to walk on the beach, which increases the problems with washing it.
