MasterMaster is an unusual but regal-looking mix of collie and shar pei. He has the coloring of a collie, with a short red coat and a plush white bib, but the definite facial features of a shar pei. Master is 10 months old and pretty much full grown at about 55 pounds. Despite his rather serious expression, Master is friendly, gentle and calm.
