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 a BAS in Veterinary Technology to better care for the dogs. Laurel passed the National Certification Exam June 15, 2007 and has completed all continuing education to stay certified and current 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 Shar pei is the perfect addition to 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 registered. 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. Florida has a Lemon Law for dogs. All male and female puppies obtain a complete physical and health certificate from a certified Florida Veterinarian. Our puppies are genetically guaranteed according to the law.
Please take a look at our Shar pei Information. Pick a Shar pei puppy from our many beautiful colors to include blue, dilute chocolate, cream, fawn, flowered (spotted) apricot and blacks. Colkim has both mini and standard, hoarse, brush, and bear coats.
Eric O’Mura from China allowed us the privilege of owning one of his Traditional Bone Mouth puppies. Vegan is now three and has sired beautiful Traditional puppies combined with Colkim’s lines of bone mouths. We have both the Chinese original look and our American Shar Pei but not over-wrinkled for health reasons.
