More Than a Dozen Chihuahuas Fly First Class to New York

Fifteen Chihuahuas got the red carpet treatment and flew in style from San Francisco, to new homes in New York where they stand a better chance to find a loving home, than they do in California.  The initiative has been dubbed: Chihuahua Airlift. 

Animal control specialists say Chihuahuas have been overbred in California, where a high volume of people purchase the animals emulating pop-culture stars, and return them or give them away to shelters after realizing the maintenance of a pet.
