Who’s the Walrus?

The Walrus dog is a designer cross between a Chinese Shar-Pei and a Basset Hound. His body is more of the Basset, but his skin is wrinkly and crinkly like the Shar-Pei, making him undeniably irresistible. They are technically a medium sized dog, as they range from 40 to 60 pounds. You may also see them referred to as a Ba-Shar.

Life Expectancy and Health Concerns

As with any purebred dog, there are some common health concerns. Specifically for the Walrus puppy, the combination of the Basset Hound and Shar-Pei presents some unique, but totally preventable and treatable problems. For instance, the Basset is susceptible to canine thrombopathia, foreleg lameness, and eyelid issues. With the Chinese Shar-Pei, you want to pay specific and close attention to their eyelids turning inward. This affliction is called ectropion. Both breeds are prone to hip dysplasia. Walrus puppies have a life expectancy of 9 to 11 years.

How are they at home?

Walrus puppies for sale are normally a show stopper and conversation starter, because they’re still kinda rare, so some research studies are rare and sparse, too. What we know for sure is that they are an affectionate breed who match very well with dog owners who live inactive and somewhat sedentary lifestyles. They aren’t going to be bouncing around and running you tirelessly. Nope! They’ll play, then lay! And though they’re not big time entertainers like some show off breeds, they are still lovable, affectionate, and comical! They’ll fair well with other dogs and even kids in the home. As we always stress, early training with Walrus puppies on sale that you purchase is key. The Shar-Pei in the Walrus puppy can be stubborn and the Basset Hound in the Walrus puppy can get easily distracted by tracking scents.

Here at Petland, we have a lot of resources for you when it comes to breed knowledge and training acumen. Our staff is very friendly and knowledgeable and are waiting with answers to your questions. Contact us today!
