Building a Chihuahua Nation!

Chihuahuas eveywhere I look…the movies, Milkbone boxes and the Los Angeles Times. Eli, chihuahua belonging to Karen Biehl of NYC won the Milkbone small biscuit contest and will be on the front of the box for the next year. ELVIS entered that contest too but didn’t really have the Milkbone look. Little did they know that he is missing half his teeth and has trouble eating the biscuits…we had to submit a picture with his mouth closed! A couple of weeks ago the L.A. Times published this article, “Chihuahuas reign as Los Angeles County’s most popular dog breed”. “L.A.’s Top Dogs,” a new database compiled by the Los Angeles Times and launched this week on its website provides facts and figures on more than half a million registered dogs in Los Angeles County.

The flip side of all this attention is the sad fact that the popularity leads to large numbers of the breed in rescues and shelters, needing homes. Top this with the Disney film, “Beverly Hills Chihuahua” coming out October 3, and we are looking at a chihuahua population explosion.

“We get an awful lot of Chihuahuas,” said Ed Boks, general manager of the city’s Department of Animal Services. “The big concern is that Disney is coming out with a movie called ‘Beverly Hills Chihuahua’ . . . . It will just encourage the breeding of Chihuahuas when we’ve already got too many out there.”

What I do see that is very positive, is that people tend to own multiple chis because of their size and many are from rescues like my ELVIS and Izzy. I can only ask this of anyone wanting a chihuahua, to check out their local shelters and rescues first before buying a chihuahua from a breeder or store. You just might be surprised at what you fall in love with. After all, I now have a full fledged, internationally known brand because of my 5 lb. rescued chihuahua and celebri-dog, ELVIS!
