Khan is a laid back, relaxed, super friendly and affectionate little gentleman! He loves to sit on your lap and have pats and loyally follows you around the house. Khan is no trouble as he rarely barks and is a complete pleasure to have around!

Khan is friendly with other dogs. However, given that he is10 years old, he is not interested in playful puppies and can be growly if dogs are not respecting his boundaries (understandably). Khan would be fine as an only dog, or perhaps companion to another breed or Chihuahua (as long as they were similar age wise). Unfortunately, Khan's former owner has come to the decision to re-home him as they have younger dogs and Khan is looking for that quiet life!

Khan is a pedigree, papered dog. He is the direct grandson of our beloved foundation dog, Pippin!


Khan is de-sexed, vaccinated, registered with the Christchurch City Council, microchipped (and added to the NZCAR database) and has had a recent dental. Khan has a low-grade heart murmur but is in excellent health. He has been very well loved and cared for.

Adopter Requirements: 

- An adopter located in/around Canterbury. Someone willing to keep in touch with us and provide updates. If they were perhaps willing to become part of the Christchurch Chihuahua Community and attend events this would be ideal. We would like to maintain the bond between Nana and Grandson!

- No full time workers. Khan needs someone who is retired, working from home, able to take him to work with them consistently or extremely part-time. Khan would love someone who was able to spend the majority of time with him.

- Someone with older dogs would be fine. Please do not apply if you have puppies or young, energetic dogs.

- Willing to take on the Pet N Sur policy and weekly payments (approx. $12.30).

Adoption Fee:  $400.00

Khan comes with: His  Council tags and "Khan" K9 tag, vet book, an ACANA/Orijen  Adopter pack (which includes various goodies and the food he has been  fed on).
