Meet Walter, the pint-sized powerhouse with a heart as big as his medication regimen! This one-eyed wonder Chihuahua may be 15 years young, but don't let his age fool you – he's still full of spunk and ready to embrace life with gusto. Despite his petite 6-pound frame and a few medical needs, including a daily trio of heart medications and an eye that never fully developed, Walter is the epitome of resilience and joy.


Sure, he might have a touch of arthritis and be missing a few teeth, but that doesn't stop him from zooming around the yard with the energy of a pup half his age. Speaking of yards, a fenced one is a must for this little guy's outdoor adventures – he loves to stretch his legs and explore his surroundings, always with a wag in his tail.


When he's not out conquering the world (or at least the backyard), Walter is a champion cuddler. There's nothing he loves more than snuggling up with his favorite human for some quality lap time, showering them with affection and maybe a few gentle kisses. And don't worry about accidents in the house – Walter is both house and pee pad trained, making him the perfect companion for any home.


At bedtime, you'll find Walter happily nestled in his open crate, dreaming sweet dreams of chasing squirrels and basking in the sun. And while he may require a soft food diet due to his toothless grin, that just means more opportunities for tasty treats and pampering sessions.


Now, you may be wondering why this dapper gentleman isn’t neutered – well, it turns out that age and a touchy heart condition have earned him a pass in that department. But fear not, because Walter is still full of love to give and is more than ready to find his forever home.


So, if you're looking for a furry friend who's equal parts charming, resilient, and downright adorable, look no further than Walter. He may be small in stature, but his love knows no bounds – and he's ready to share it all with his forever family. Who's ready to welcome this little bundle of joy into their hearts and home?
