sfgate.com reported that paris hilton has been blamed for an epidemic of abandoned chihuahuas in california animal shelters because she’s made toting around chihuahua puppies in tiny handbags a major trend.
the hotel heiress was investigated last year after admitting she owned 17 dogs, allegedly breaking u.s. laws that ban non-breeders from having more than three per address.
animal shelter bosses in santa barbara have now prohibited anyone under age 21 from adopting a miniature pup after seeing a growing trend of young women dumping their full-grown dogs when they’re sick of caring for them.
activists are now blaming hilton’s menagerie of teacup-sized chihuahuas for the growing problem.
chihuahua club of america head lynnie bunten tells the national enquirer, “chihuahuas are not a toy or a fashion accessory. but because some people think they are — then realize they’re wrong — there’s a growing problem of abandoned chihuahuas.”
