This sweet momma just gave birth to three wrinkly nuggets that couldn’t be any cuter.
Baby Jane is the proud momma to three Shar-pei puppies, two boys, and a girl. The tiny puppies are super wrinkly and more than adorable.
Did you know that their wrinkles had a purpose other than being cute? They were initially bred to guard and protect royalty. Their loose skin prevented another dog from getting a good grip on them if they ever happened to get in a dog fight. But for now, their skin is just protecting them from each other’s tiny puppy teeth.
Wrinkles or not, these puppies are adorable and playful. They’re growing fast and love to play with each other. Soon, they’re ready to play outside and learn how to guard their perimeter against danger.
Even though their wrinkly coat looks soft and squishable, it’s rough to the touch. The breed originated in ancient China and shar-pei translates to “sand skin.” But as they age, they will grow into their skin and it will get snugger.
Another unusual quality of these cute dogs is their blue tongue. They are born light blue but their tongue will darken as they age. Legend has it their tongue is thought to ward off evil spirits and make them look fierce.
Looking fierce or not might be up for debate. But guarding is in their genes so mom is making sure they learn how to patrol. But little bro is more interested in playing so his sisters try to show him the ropes.
Determined to play, the sisters gang up on their little brother and try to steal the toys. They’ve had enough guard dog practice for one day and want to have some fun. Their little brother eventually has enough of them and runs away.
Shar-pei makes excellent watchdogs, once they grow up. Proactive and smart, their curtness can be a little deceiving. We hope you enjoyed this cute video. As always, please feel free to share with your friends.
