Tipper is a 15 year old Chihuahua who does not like his picture taken as i have found out, I am actually worn out from chasing him around trying to get these pictures of him. He thinks he a movie star or something. He might even be the spirit of my grandma since a lot of the pics i have taken of him only show the back of his head, she was always asking me if her hair on the back of her head looked ok........anyway,
Tipper is a really good dog if he is the only one to get attention. He does not do well with other pets in the home as we have learned.

We got Tipper when we agreed to watch him for a friend in our church. She was a really nice old lady that loved Tipper so very much. She had to go to the hospital for a procedure and unfortunately she passed away while there. We agreed to keep Tipper when her daughter asked because we really like him. But over time we have seen how he has become with the other pets in the house and we have decided he needs a home where he is the only pet to get attention.
Tipper really loves to sit on your lap and sleep. He is a old man so lots of napping, but he does also enjoy a little tug of war every now and then!

FUN FACT! Tipper got his name because when he was a puppy he would lean to one side and pick up one leg when he ate and drank, So they called him Tipper!

Please Help us find Tip a new home where he can get the attention he desires. We really want to see him happy!
