So let me get this straight... you're a BYB who has too many puppies to take care of, so you want to find people to take care of them for you? O.o

I looked at your website and am slightly confused... You are obviously a breeder. Is this female from a rescue you are working with? Is she a dog you produced?

I am not one to immediately jump on the flame bandwagon but I am a little confused about what is going on...

wait.. I don't understand. You breed those dogs so YOU are responsible for them. Shouldn't foster homes be left available for dogs truely in need?

If you can't find homes for all of them/look after those who you can't place perhaps you shouldn't breed

Yippee! I think I'm going to start calling myself Lord Cynical. Has a nice ring to it.

You see, I do REAL fostering, for a REAL rescue. My current foster dog was found loose running the streets... that's a real foster.

Yes we breed Chis. About 2 litters a year. Not "tea cups" or show dogs. We breed for size and temperament for companion pets. The demand for Chis far exceeds the supply. I believe mostly do to movies with Chis and the tocobell commercials, etc. As a result many folks that no nothing about the breed have been duped into purchasing them by breeders that only care about making $$$. Not in finding a forever home for their dogs or improving their blood lines.

We were receiving many calls from folks that needed to rehome their Chi do to illness, old age or death of the owners. So we decided to also help find new homes for these dogs so they would not be turned out to the street or possibly to animal control to be put to death. Most of these dogs had behavioral issues and needed training before the could be adopted to a permeant home successfully. That is where the foster care network came in. We now have about 40 foster care partners along the east coast that can take in a little Chi and work with it to prepare for adoption.

We also offer free ads for anyone needing to rehome their dog and free Chihuahua want ads for people that want to adopt rather than purchase a pup or a dog from a greedy breeder or puppy mill.

Last month, with the help of our foster care network, we found new homes for 3 Chihuahuas and 2 Chis found new homes so far this month.

We are actually doing 2 separate things we breed Chihuahuas and we also help find homes for Chihuahuas in need. The rehoming and adoption has been very successful so far do the the high traffic we already get on he site.

I don't know if that answers your questions or not, but that is a snapshot of what we are doing.
