Animal Welfare shipping tiny dogs out of state

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE)– New Mexico is not only a big exporter of things like green chile and pecans but also Chihuahuas.

For the last several months Albuquerque’s Animal Welfare has been shipping Chihuahua’s to Maine.

The shelter is overflowing with the tiny dogs, according to staff.

They say places like Maine rarely get Chihuahuas.

The latest dog to make his venture out east is Rootbeer. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
