On Monday, a truck transporting dozens of chihuahuas arrived at the Humane Rescue Alliance with dogs up for adoption in DC. The 250 Chihuahuas rescued from a breeder’s home in Mississippi are all waiting to be adopted.

“These dogs were part of a breeder who decided they no longer want to involve themselves in breeding,” said Stephanie Shain, chief operating officer at the Humane Rescue Alliance in D.C.

The 35 chihuahuas range in age from only a few months old, to seven years. They arrived in D.C. after two days of traveling.

All dogs must pass a medical and behavioral examination before they can be up for adoption. But, those interested in adopting can begin inquiries as early as Wednesday.

Because of they size, we expect that the dog will adopt quickly-said Shain. Even though they are a bit bigger than the average chihuahua.

Moreover, anyone considering adopting a Chihuahua should keep in mind the dog will be a part of the family for years to come, Shain said.

“You really are making anywhere from a 15-20 year commitment to them,” Shain said.

Around 60 of the rescued animals were brought to the D.C. area. Close to 30 dogs rescued from the breeder’s home were also delivered to Loudoun County Animal Services. And they will be put up for adoption there soon.
