There's Chloe, the 3-year-old deaf Chihuahua who was found in a Dumpster and looks much older than her age because her owners didn't care for her properly.

There's Tiger and Candy, 11-month-old poodle Chihuahua mixes who lost their homes when their family changed jobs and could no longer keep them.

    There was a bill trying to be passed a couple of years ago that would make everyone have to spay or neuter their pets or get a license to breed their dog supported by Bob Barker. I wish this would have passed as it would take care of part of the problem.Not all of it but at least the law abiding people would have followed. Of all the organizations to protest it the AKC was at the head as it was thought that this would limit pure bred dogs. No thought to the poor mixed dogs that are crowding our shelters. Hope these chihuahua's find homes soon.

    boonablis: i agree!! I am not sure if you were actually agreeing with me or trying to be a smarta$$ but what you said makes sense. Old people and animals are my passion (oh..and computers). My daughter and I drove through Lodi yesterday and saw 2 small dogs running the streets alone (both on the East side of town). One ran right across Lodi Avenue. I wanted to stop and get the dogs, they don't deserve animals anyway. To save an animals life would be worth it to me.

    I think people should be forced to have their animals "fixed" so there is not this kind of problem. Why should the animals have to suffer? And if they don't, there should be a $500 fine to pay then proof that they did it. Poor animals.
