Looking for a chihuahua? Baltimore City’s animal shelter has 53 of the dog family’s smallest breed up for adoption after a woman agreed to turn them over to animal control.
According to BARCS, a woman was breeding chihuahuas. But after the number of pups rose to 53, she was no longer able to care for all of her dogs. Animal control was called, and the woman agreed to surrender the pets. They were then turned over to BARCS.
After the dogs are spayed or neutered, they will be put up for adoption, with the first available on Sept. 25.
“We take in over 11,000 dogs and cats every year, and it’s situations like these that remind us even more about the importance of spaying and neutering your pets,” said Executive Director Jennifer Brause. “We are grateful that these dogs seem to be well cared for and hopefully we will find them homes quickly.”
BARCS has an adoption application form available online.
