famous chihuahua editor beverly hills chihuahua movie, chihuahua news, chihuahua rescue 15 Comments

for the second week in a row, disney’s film beverly hills chihuahua topped box offices taking in an estimated 17.5 million dollars, making it the first film since august to take the no. 1. spot at the box office for two weeks in a row.

it is evident that movie goers are loving talking chihuahuas and that people are coming to love and respect the chihuahua breed in a whole new way.

famouschihuahua.com respectfully asks it readers that if after seeing this film you decide the chihuahua is the right dog for you, that you do your research on the chihuahua breed first.

even though chihuahuas may seem like the most adorable and portable pet, there are several characteristics and traits about the breed that can not be overlooked, specifically their compatibility with small children, their desire to be territorial (over-protective) and their very delicate physical make-up.

if you still feel the chihuahua is the right dog for you, then we recommend that you adopt or rescue a chihuahua.

did you know that papi, the star of beverly hills chihuahua was a rescued by the movie’s filmmakers the day before he was scheduled to be euthanized?

did you also know that if everyone who wanted a chihuahua went to a shelter or rescue group, the cycle of over breeding and euthanasia could become a thing of the past?

the message is clear, if you love chihuahuas, adopt one. you might be surprised to find out that some of the most lovable canine companions are those that have been rescued.

    I went on your site contacted CCRT in Toronto was willing to adopt and fly up and bring home a chih that needed a forever home her elderly owner had to go to a nursing home and my mother who wanted her who also was a senior lost her little chi Xmas eve fell in love with the dog in the pics was told because she was afraid to fly that she would personally have to meet the dog. I know you are trying to look out for the best interest of these dogs but for you guys to advertise to adopt rather than go to a breeder which I am now left with no choice but to do so is disheartening!,,I initiated the adoption over a month ago and told the people upfront that my mom could not fly to get the dog before I proceeded any further only to get her hopes up and break her heart once again. Not Acceptable 😡😡

    hi ALL:

    iF THERE IS ONE COUNTRY IN WHICH YOU WANT SEND cHIHUAHUA’S FOR ADOPTION FAST IS IN THE pHILIPINES. pEOPLE LOVE SMALL DOGS HERE THAN BIG DOGS.

    i KNEW THAT AT SOME POINT SOME OF MY COUNTRY MEN WHERE KNOWN EAT DOGS BUT aNIMAL CRUELTY IS NOW A MANDATED LAW HERE AND THEY ARE ARRESTING NOW THESE PEOPLE AND SENT TO JAIL. At anyways, they would not like to eat dogs with breeds here because of the weird reason that their meat is not pure and doesnt taste good beacuse they eat dog food more than leftover foods.(This waht they usually feed our askal (local type dogs)

    I have 3 chihuahua’s that I love dearly, one I bought from a reputable breeder. The other two
    Chico and Rosie are adopted. Chico I got in Puerto Rico at a terrible place called dead dog beach, where people just dump the dogs if they can no longer care for them, I wished I could of taken them all home. Rosie was found in a garbage can with 2 dead babies next to her,she was also near death. I nursed her back to health, had to have most of her teeth pulled out, because she had all rotten teeth. But today they atr both happy and healthy (well) dogs. The vet thinks Rosie is about 19 years old, she is slowly going blind and can’t hear………..but nothing stops her from eating. Mini is 4 lbs of joy. I would be happy to adopt another .

    i think rescues and shelters charge way too much for a chihuahua even if they are fixed they charge a lot of money i rather spend a lower price on a dog .and use the money to care for it and buy lts of supplies and things for it well being

    I’ve adopted a chihuahua from our local shelter before, but gave up on trying for the second one from one of the rescue groups. They’re doing a fantastic job in rescuing these little dogs, and I appreciate all of their hard work, but sometimes I feel like they’re a little too selective when choosing adopters. The first time I applied, I was turned down because I was a college student. The second time it was because I worked 40 hours a week. I’m sorry, but we can’t all afford to be stay-at-home pet owners. So I finally purchased my other chi baby. My little shelter chi, Poppet, recently passed away due to AIHA at the advanced age of 18. I had him 10 years, and they were the best years of my life. He was a great dog. I’d love to rescue another one when the time is right, but I’ll probably just purchase again. I’m tired of being made to feel like I’m not good enough or am a bad dog owner. I exercise, play with, care for their medical and dental needs, love, adore, lavish attention on, socialize, provide a safe environment, make indoor potty provisions, neuter, provide good nutrition, can provide vet recommendations…but apparently that’s not enough.
