Yeah, last year the shelter here in Bakersfield shipped 90 little dogs, 95% of them chis, to Washington state, to be adopted. They said all of they were adopted within two weeks.California has had a huge problem with the number of chihuahuas being turn into shelters. Aside from pit bulls, chihuahuas are the most common breed found in CA shelters. San Francisco's local rescue groups are dominated by chihuahuas and they have started shipping them to other states that want them. Virgin airlines was kind enough to provide free transport of rescue chihuahuas to the East Coast a couple of months ago.
