Sesame the Shar-Pei Gets a Facelift, And Sees for the First Time

Sesame, a 2-year-old Shar-Pei who had incredibly robust and luxurious skin folds around both eyes and ears, was brought into San Antonio’s Animal Care Services in February.

Staff soon found out those skin folds were so luxurious, he couldn’t see.

“It’s not uncommon for Shar-Peis to have vision problems related to their wrinkles covering their eyes, but this was an extreme case,” Seamus Nelson, the director of communications for the Humane Society, told ABC News. “It took a little bit of assessment to realize that he cannot see and he smelled horrible.”
