Our 4 -5 year old SharPei has had 4 homes. We are her 4th home. She is welcomed to stay, have treated her with loving care, has food, shelter, a nice yard to poop in (ha)and so on. She has companionship from our other two Shar Peis. They are getting along so far. Question: why is she growling at me when I tell her to come into the house for more comfort and protection from the elements? Hurt.
