I was really worried when the Disney movie Beverly Hills Chihuahua came out in October last year. As I've mentioned before, when animals are featured in movies, tv shows, dog shows, newspapers (or are breeds chosen by "famous" people ... a good example would be the presidential dog!) there is an influx of people wanting to get them ... the sad reality is that about a year (or two) after this happens, you start seeing a drastic increase of that breed in rescues and shelters.
Today's featured rescue is a cute gal from Buffalo, NY named Ingrid. She is 6 years old, has had some dental work completed, and is spayed. Ingrid will soon be considered a senior dog but still has many years ahead of her. I hope her age doesn't deter people from adopting her.
