Calypso is a cutie! This adorable little dog with the perpetual smile is a 6-month-old Chihuahua. She’s somewhat shy when first meeting new people, but once she warms up she’s affectionate and loves to be cuddled. Calypso is gentle, quiet and good with other small dogs. Give this sweetie a home for the holidays, and she’ll be your constant companion.
