Hi there! Thanks for visiting our website. This is a new site for us, so please be patient while we learn some things!
Our names are Jeff and Sherrie Nixon. We are the proud founders of the Nixon Wrinkle Ranch. We are also the proud parents of two grown daughters, Jorden and Jenna. They are busy putting their own stamps on life!
The Wrinkle Ranch is ours!
Jeff and I have been in love with the Chinese Shar Pei breed for over 25 years. We have had them as strictly companions up until 2016. That is when we were introduced to the dog show world by a breeder. We waited for almost a year for Ryley, our first show and breeding dog!
Miss Ryley has brought so much joy and love to our family. Ryley was purchased with the intent to show her at CKC conformation dog shows, and breed her once she was of age. We have enjoyed every single moment with Ch Taipan Palace Miss Ryley LC! She has the typical shar pei attitude of being stand offish to stangers, and beautiful to admire. She is very loyal and quick to learn new skills. Ryley is a cuddlebum. Ryley 'thinks' she is amazing at Agility sports and loves to run them. (Did I say Run?!?... Ryley walks through them with pride and very diginified, but we all cheer anyway!) Ryley has done very well with conformation shows and became a Champion in 2019.
Cooper came to us in 2019! He has also become a show dog. From a puppy, Cooper has been my companion. There is nothing I do during the day that is without him. I often joke that we should have named him Velcro. However his name is MBBPIS MBPIS BPISS Gumby's Flew the Cooper Buoy. (That is alot of name for a guy who had all those winnings before he turned 1 year of age.) Cooper is full of excitement and spunk. He enjoys going for walks, meeting people and most of all SWIMMING! Usually Shar Pei are not known to be big swimmers. Cooper is breaking that rule! He loves going swimming and also loves being rewarded with treats! Cooper will do most anything to please 'his people'. He is a happy guy and we are so fortunate to have him. Cooper has also done very well with his conformation shows. He was a Champion by 8 months of age, with two Best Baby Puppy in Shows, and 2 Best Puppy in Shows along with many other wins. August 2019 Cooper won at The Chinese Shar Pei Club of Canada's National Specialty, Best Puppy in Breed, Select Dog, and Best Canadian Breed. This was a true honor judged by Beverly Capstick.
Our goal with breeding, is to only breed when we have families interested in a top quality puppy. That is why our puppies are limited. The most we will have is two litters per year. We breed with the mindset of improving the health and temperment of the Shar Pei for the betterment of the breed going forward. We are passionate about Shar Pei, that is why we provide a 2 year health guarantee.
The dogs we choose to use in our breeding program are health tested, SPAID, Glaucoma tested. Hips, Elbows and Patellas are certified by OFA. We match our breeding pairs together with great care.
All of our dogs live as family pets. They are fed the best of food for a Shar Pei. We have limits as well as obedience training for our dogs. They receive plenty of socialization early on and during their active lives. We would expect our puppy families to do the same.
All puppies will be CKC registered and microchipped. All puppies will have their first vaccines (Dr. Dodd protocol) and be vet checked. You will be provided with ONGOING support for your puppy, we are always available and willing to share our education about this wonderful breed. if at any time you can no longer care for your pup, it is expected that the pup would be able to be returned to us.
We are members in good standing, with The Grey-Bruce Kennel and Obedience Club, The Chinese Shar Pei Club of Canada and the Canadian Kennel Club.
At Nixon Wrinkle Ranch we give credit for our breeding program and our show ethics to fellow Chinese Shar Pei Breeders/Co-owners. They have taught us so much and have been willing to help us through the process of getting a fabulous breeding program in place. All this, so that we can provide the opportunity for others to enjoy and marvel at the beauty of the Chinese Shar Pei. As you are looking at various breeders, some with more experience than us, know that we have great Shar Pei breeders who mentor us and are in constant contact with us to answer any of our questions or concerns. Therefore you are not just starting a connection with us, but with other breeders as well. We do this to ensure our Nixon Wrinkle Ranch puppies are the best!
We hold our values of breeding healthy, beautiful shar pei with wonderful temperments high. We start our three week old puppies on the PUPPY CULTURE PROGRAM which we feel provides them with the best environment for healthy and secure temperments. We like our puppies to always be learning and experiencing through their surrondings and also incorporate the "7 experiences for healthy temperment puppies".
We invite you to contact us with any questions or interest you may have in our breeding program.
