George the Shar Pei: Food Undergoes the Pendulum Test

We came across our newest subject for the standing feature “New Canine-ites,” profiling local dogs, at Waveny on Monday afternoon. It’s rare to see a Shar Pei in New Canaan, and George Zabrodsky is a great example of the breed. He’s seven years old and belongs to owner Rowena Zabrodsky, along with Tiger Lily, a 12-year-old pug. Originally from Florida and a Zabrodsky and New Canaan resident (they’ve been living here 16 years) since he was a puppy, George is “sort of ADD,” his owner told us when asked about the handsome fella’s personality. “So he’s not very good at training,” Zabrodsky said.
