The chihuahuas are here!!

According to Gothamist, “Anyone interested in adopting one of these little guys is being instructed by the ASPCA to report to 424 East 92nd Street at 12 p.m. on Wednesday, January 13th. The ASPCA is making a point to tell people not to arrive earlier than that, but we suspect they’ll be a line forming overnight. If you have any dogs already, you need to bring them with you to see if they’re going to tolerate each other, and you should also be prepared to pay between $75 to $200 for “medical behavior treatment, vaccinations, spaying/neutering, and a microchip.”

There’s only 15 dogs. ┬áBut man are they cute.

One thought on “The chihuahuas are here!!

  1. Awww, that is a cute dog.

    Though I love my two dogs, I do have one insurmountable problem: Rambo, the min-pin will NOT tolerate another dog here. He likes his buddy, Oscar, but will NOT accept another dog. This is a problem for me because I would LOVE to foster dogs via our local animal welfare group. I tried that one summer, and although the dog I brought home was much larger than Rambo, it still didn’t work out due to Rambo being aggressive.

    Maybe I should get Victoria Stilwell from “It’s the Dog or Me” (Animal Planet) to do a show about my Rambo problem. LOL I do think bringing along dogs to an adoption is a good idea to see if there’s going to be problems. I know it’s best for new dogs to meet the established dogs on “neutral territory” — away from their home. Maybe I’ll try an obedience course this Spring for Rambo too — although he is trained to sit/stay/etc. Even if we are out walking, he’ll at first be “nice” to another dog but then turn on it if it starts following us.

    Sometimes I think because I rescued Rambo from the shelter and he’d been found roaming, he doesn’t want to share his home with any rivals! Oscar, the doxie, arrived only a month after Rambo, so they get along great. And Oscar has NO issue with other dogs or people; he loves everyone equally.
