Default Theres too many Chihuahuas in California

I am pretty obsessed about chis. If i had a chance i'd rescue them all if i lived in California. I just dont get why so many chis are dumped in the shelters in Cali. The shelter I got my baby girl from is full of 7 week old chis and many other types of dogs. If anyone is looking for a chihuahua puppies there are so many in the shelters in California. I don't get how there could be so many on a weekly basis. I've counted at least 150 chis or chi-mixes at this particular shelter. Why is the situation to drastic in California?

Please consider rescuing these babies in the high kill shelters in Bakersfield or Los Angeles. It breaks my heart to see such small babies there!

That breaks my heart!!!
I wonder if its got something to do with that Beverly Hills Chihuahua movie? I've not seen it yet, but one would think that the Chi sales would be booming due to the movie and Christmas coming up...?

Ugh, thinking of the poor shivering lil babies in those loud kennals... (sobs)

I think one of the reasons is the Paris Hilton effect. If the shelter you're talking about is in or anywhere near LA there are many girls around there who want to be like their favorite celebrities. And unfortunately having a chi or another small cute animal fits that description of what they are striving to create of themselves. But once they realize the huge responsibility they've gotten themselves involved in and all the attention and hard work it's way too much for them so the poor little chis end up in shelters or, heaven forbid, worse they just get dropped off somewhere. It's an incredibly horrible truth out there.

I think Amy527 is hitting it closer to home with the Paris Hilton wannabes. Many young girls, some still in elementary I bet you, since I remember some Mom's saying Paris is a 'good' role model. Probably all begged their parents for a chi puppy and the after math is about the same the puppy loses its youthfulness has habits due lack of training. Who knows about the breeding!? Eventually the dog ends up tossed aside like yesterday's fashion trend. California has the climate where a chi just fits in with. I'm not 100% sure why the shelters so stock full of them I think its due to the fame and over breeding by BYB.

That's very sad to hear. Having kids does not mean you can't give a good home to a puppy.

its very sad, my daughter is so good with my chis. They charge a higher adoption fee for chis because chihuahuas out here are just throw out like garbage, they are forced to charge a higher fee to make sure they go to the right family

I can understand the rescue wanting the dogs to go to the right home,...but any body can come up with money..they should focus on interviewing them more and looking into the persons lives to make sure they are ready for a shelter pup, that should include familys with children, not all kids treat animals like toys.

I get majorly down knowing that there are all these animals in shelters and I cant do a thing to help xx
