- Colkim Kennels
is serious about the health of the Shar Pei. Laurel
Colgate and Betty Colgate strive to produce the happy healthy
dog. In 1998 Laurel completed an AS in Veterinary
Technology. This is equal to a LPN in nursing for people
to better care for the dogs. Last year St. Petersburg
College initiated a Bachelor of Science program in Veterinary
Technology (The only one in the country). Laurel completed
the program in July 2007 and passed the National Certification
Exam June 15, 2007. This is the
equivalent of a RN Degree in nursing. We are learning a
lot to help promote healthier dogs.
- Shar-Pei once a very rare dog breed, is often called the
"wrinkled dogs". Their intelligence, keen
ability to be a watch dog, easy housebreaking, and short coat
makes the pei a wonderful pet. The Sharpei is the
perfect addition to both the traditional family of mom, dad,
and children, as well as, the ideal companion for a couple
looking for a substitute child, or devoted friend for the
single person. They are comfortable in an apartment
setting with nice walks as well as in a home inside with a
backyard to go in and out occasionally.
Colkim Kennel is proud to be among the original group of
Shar Pei Breeders in the United
States. We started in 1979. Our original
Shar Pei's were registered with the Chinese Shar Pei Club of
America. These purebred dogs were called foundation stock.
In 1992, The American Kennel Club removed the Sharpei from
miscellaneous class to full AKC registration. Colkim
Kennel had our first SCPCA champion in 1982.
All our Shar Pei's are AKC
Most of our loving
Male Shar Pei puppies and
Female Shar Pei Puppies
have Champions in their background pedigree. Breed and Pet
quality are an ideal choice for a family pet. Showing
demands a lot of time and training. Most individuals find
showing too demanding. All
Male Sharpei puppies and
Female Sharpei Puppies
obtain a complete physical and health certificate. Our
puppies are genetically guaranteed, take a look at our Sharpei
Information on Expecting Litters Pick a

in many beautiful colors including blue, dilute chocolate,
cream, fawn, flowered (spotted) apricot and blacks. Colkim
has both mini and standard, hoarse, brush, and bear coats.
March 2005, Betty Colgate joined a Shar-Pei Group sponsored by
Lana Tsan and Eric Takeshi Omura to visit Dailet China.
The group was privileged to attend a Specialty Show for the Shar-Pei
and Tibetan Mastiff.&.
