World’s Most Photogenic Shar Pei And His Cat Are The Best Friends Ever

Paddington the dog and Butler the cat are inseparable. The droopy Shar Pei, often dressed up in costume, patiently sits beside his feline friend, putting up with his cat antics. The best friends live with their owner Annie Jacob and three other cats in Tasmania on the south coast of Australia.

One has to wonder—while Paddington seems to sincerely like Butler, can Butler tell Paddington apart from a wrinkled blanket?

Shar Pei’s are one of the world’s rarest breeds. Its name translates from Chinese into “sand skin,” which refers to the texture of its rough coat. Shar Pei puppies are famously wrinkly, but as the get older, they “grow into their skin.” The American Kennel Club did not recognize the breed until 1991.
