Isn't it sad?? I'm on the East Coast of the US & we very very rarely have Chi's in our shelters as well. (I've actually never seen one because if/when they're brought in they're adopted almost immediately) Last year they brought over TONS of Chi's from the West Coast to our shelters & there was literally a waiting list for them. It also didn't make people very happy hear to have them bring them over. But I think it's great because the demand for Chi's is so much greater.

That is so sad, they have become a victim of their own popularity. I wish I could just go over there and rescue 20 of them

I have never seen one in a shelter here either, there is such demand for them people can sell on an adult chi for a few hundred pounds so I don't think people just abandon them, if the big shelters are handed a breed like that they send them to small breed soecific rescues. If a chi ever came in to rescue in manchester, it would definately wouldnt have been there for more than a few hours before I adopted it.

I asked in a rescue shelter when my daughter got her cat if they ever have chis in,maybe 1 a year mostly when the owner dies and they're snapped up the very day they're put up for adoption,that is so sad

I've seen more chi's than normal in our shelters (my good friend is a rescue worker). Typically, they are 3 years + and people want puppies. I always remind my friend that a well cared-for chi will live a long time. A lot of people think chi's can't be around children, which limits the pool of adoptive families. My kids love Jax and they know they can't grab him and pick him up, and I WATCH THEM with the dogs. Nothing is more sad to me than a pudgy, scared little chi in a shelter cage.

Chi's are very popular here. We have them in the shelter ALL THE TIME. At the humane society shelter, there's always at least 4 or 5. Then we have independent shelters, and there's a ton of them there too.

Check out this rescue in our city, they have several. I LOVE JC (about halfway down the page). She is such a darling. She's been in the rescue for several months. Petey is really cute too. So sad.

Very sad. I see chi's in rescue here fairly regularly as well. The rescue where I got Pip and Roo generally have a few. They will take chi's from all over the states, they take a lot that are about to be put down. The good thing about them being in rescue compared to the humane society is they don't put them down.
