      The Shar Pei dog is a breed of dog that originated in China and has the distinctive features of deep wrinkles and a blue-black tongue. The name translates to "sand skin," not because of color but because of texture. As puppies, these dogs have lots of wrinkles, but as they mature, the wrinkles disappear as they "grow into their skin". The American Kennel Club did not recognize the breed until 1991

    What is it about a #dog with wrinkles that just makes our heart skip a beat? The Chinese #Shar-Pei is a breed full of physical quirks — a wide "hippopotamus" muzzle, triangular ears, a blue-black tongue and, yes, all those snuggly folds of skin.
