CHRISTOPHER - Chihuahua, male, 7 years, 8 lbs. Christopher came to us with his brother, Wags McGee, as an owner surrender because prior owners were unable to care for them. While we initially believed that they were a bonded pair, they have both proven to be independent little fellows who are very sociable and love people and other dogs. Christopher is a very cheerful little guy who has controlled diabetes. He requires an insulin shot twice a day, and if you administer it while he indulges in his favorite activity of eating, he won’t even be aware of it. Christopher is paper trained and is showing signs that he could be on his way to being completely housebroken. He will go outside in the morning and if taken out several times during the day, he seems to be happy enough taking care of business in the great outdoors. Christopher is very bright and interested in everything, eager to give his humans many kisses, very affectionate. He has cataracts, but that doesn’t seem to slow him down. Christopher is, simply, a Chihuahua and a credit to his breed

** If you are interested in adopting this dog, you must first complete an adoption application at Or visit our site ( and learn about other Peppertree dogs. *Note: visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.
