The Bull-Pei is a mongrel dog, a cross between the Chinese Shar-Pei and English Bulldog breeds. Medium-sized, affectionate, and loyal, these puppies inherit some of the best traits from both of their parents. Despite their unfortunate status as a designer breed, you can find these puppies in breed-specific shelters and rescues, so remember to adopt. Bull-Peis make excellent companions and watchdogs without being overly large or requiring much exercise. They are striking to look at because of their wrinkles. Just make sure you have time to keep your puppy clean and dry, as they are prone to skin infections between the wrinkles. These dogs can live in apartments or houses. If you’re looking for a calm and fairly distinguished looking companion dog, the Bull-Pei may be perfect for you. AniMall24 recommends a good carrier for traveling with your small Bull-Pei.

The Bull-Pei is a mixed breed dog. They are not pure breeds like their parents English Bulldog or Shar-Pei. The main colours of the Bull-Pei are black, brown, grey, white and fawn. Rarely solid, their coats are usually a mixture of two or more colors. They are generally not considered allergy friendly. Fortunately, their coat is very easy to brush. One good brushing a week will suffice. Bull-Peis may be more suitable for households with older children who know how to behave and interact with animals. They can get along well with other dogs, if they have been raised with them. If they resemble the Shar-Pei parent, they may make a better solo pet. Bull-Pei do not need much exercise. They only need 40 to 60 minutes of exercise a day. Bull-Peis’ personalities can be somewhat placid and they are not overly excitable. They are very happy with their loved ones and do not worry too much about making friends outside of their home.
The Bull-Pei mixed breed may have existed naturally over the years, but designer breeders began intentionally mixing Chinese Shar-Peis and English Bulldogs in the 1990s, probably in North America. The breeders wanted to blend the two parent breeds to create a distinguished looking, companionable guard dog. They continued to create Bull-Peis as the demand for the mixed breed grew. Although the Bull-Pei mixed breed began as a designer breed, some have ended up in shelters or in the care of rescue groups. Consider adoption if you decide this is the breed for you. Check local shelters, look for Bull-Pei rescues, or check with breed-specific Shar-Pei and English Bulldog rescues, as they sometimes take in mixed breed dogs and find them homes.
