Roaming packs of small dogs are proving to be an unexpected menace in some parts of Arizona.

Quote

Chihuahuas might not be the first breed that springs to mind when you think of dangerous dogs, yet for residents of Maryvale the threat posed by these pint-sized canines is proving all too real.

Hats off to Maricopa County for trying to round them up and rehome them.

All Chihuahuas are crazy by their genetic codes and I´m sure there is not just only one single Chihuahuas within
our galaxy, that is not crazy. Just look at a Chihuahuas face, it explains all without any doubt.

This is our (humans) fault. When dogs are cast out and have to fend for themselves this is what happens...they revert back to packs and live via instinct.

I think this absolutely hilarious.  A bunch of Napoleon-esque tiny dogs got tired of the small life and decided there was power in numbers.

Good for them.

"A 6-year-old girl is recovering after she was attacked by a pack of Chihuahuas in Salem."

"William Van Aken, the victim's father, said he and his daughter were on a walk to her school.  "We were only two blocks from the school when the five dogs just ran up barking and they ran straight after her and I thought they were just going to come up to us and back off, but the biggest one jumped up and bit her in the shoulder," he said.

A school crossing guard who was nearby chased the dogs away."

Probably the main reason they've organized themselves into a large pack. Tough little guys, ya gotta give them credit for surviving.

Okay, okay, you've shamed me.

The thing is, I've owned Chihuahuas over the years and none of them have ever been able to bite hard enough to break the skin.  And I had a 14 lb-er at one point.

People don't realize how aggressive they are as pets and must discard them, hence the gangs that have cropped up.

But for crying out loud, you can punt them like a football!

Well, I was giving one a jab the other day (against Ehrlichosis) and suddenly I had 4 holes in my hand.

Now, Pomeranians are worse when it comes to pint sizes misbehaving.
