Sharpey is divided into two types: standard and miniature:
- The Shar Pei standard has a height of 46 to 56 cm for men and women. The weight ranges between 20 and 30 kg.
- Miniature or mini Shar Pei has a height of 36 to 43 cm and a weight of 11 to 18 kg.
The size of an adult dog is determined mainly by genetics. Therefore, the size of puppies, especially at an early age, is a poor indicator of their final size.
Some puppies grow before others, and some continue to grow more.
