Animal shelters seeing glut of Chihuahuas -- latimes.com: "Reporting from San Francisco - If every dog has its day, the Chihuahua's, it seems, may be on the wane.
Representatives from half a dozen Bay Area animal shelters and rescue groups asked the public's help Wednesday in remedying a serious statewide glut of the petite pooches.
'All the shelters in California are seeing an upswing in Chihuahua impounds,' Deb Campbell, a spokeswoman for the San Francisco animal care and control department, said in an interview. 'It's been a slow and steady climb. . . . We call it the Paris Hilton syndrome.'"
