The Sharmatian is a cross between the Chinese Shar-Pei and the Dalmatian. These hybrid dogs are also called designer dogs. The characteristics, traits and appearance of mix dogs is often difficult to determine but because of their mixed ancestry they are often less likely to develop many of the health hazards that their ancestor may have. You will usually find that hybrid dogs have traits from both of their pure breed ancestors.
Dalmation and shar-pei mixed dogs are likely to be in between 40 and 60 pounds with a height in between 18″ and 24″. Males will usually be larger than the females. They can come in a variety of colors and can have spots just like the dalmatian.
They are often very intelligent. They require a decent amount of training as well as exercise so they do not become bored and destructive. These dogs make great guard dogs and because of their size will usually ward away any unwanted intruders.
Blake writes, “Addison is a mix breed; Mom was a Chinese Shar Pei and Dad was a Dalmation.”
