Once I sit in the chair with headphones on, he will actually jump and whine until I let him on my lap. He is a “kijiji rescue”. The last owner said he was two years old, but after a visit to the vet, it is now believed he is about eight. Oliver had 23 teeth removed right away due to a serious infection and since then he has grown more hair (seriously, it’s more than two inches long!) and his heart murmur has disappeared. He gained 1 ½ lbs, making him now a full 7lbs! We believe he is a Chihuahua Papillion cross. His hobbies include long walks, playing ball, running around like a crazy dog, chasing the cat and hanging out with his family.
