12 Most Common Dog Breeds in Shelters
In California alone, Chihuahuas make up 30% of the dog population in shelters. This breed is extremely popular, especially in urban areas. Many are seen as a ‘fashion statement’ as opposed to an animal one has to care for. Without the right care, Chihuahuas can be timid and prone to fear based aggression. Many surrender this breed when they realize that they require the same care as any other pet.
