The Best Friends Network ("a coalition of kindness to animals caught in the pet trade") wants to spread the message about the negative impact of "impulse buying" of dogs, particularly from pet shops, and promoting what they consider the most humane way to adopt a Chihuahua -- going through a shelter or rescue organization.

The PetFinder website is an excellent way to find adoptable dogs, and allows you to use your zip code to find animals available in your area by gender, age, and size.
