Last weekend, a maintenance worker found 10 Chihuahuas abandoned in a vacant Lodi home. So he wrangled up the tiny family in the 700 block of South Church Street and delivered it to the Lodi Animal Shelter.

The arrival of the small dogs was not an unusual occurrence: Chihuahuas are flooding the Lodi shelter and are a dominant population in other shelters across the state. Lodi’s shelter receives more Chihuahuas than any other dog breed. Only the number of pit bulls approaches the Chihuahua population, forcing shelters to devote the majority of resources to two breeds.
