Chihuahuas soared in popularity in the late 1990s and early 2000s thanks to a certain fast food commercial and the breeds’ favor among some stylish young celebrities. But by 2009, chihuahuas were brought in droves to animal shelters, particularly in California. This was due in no small part to the economic recession, but it also had to do with the temperament of the breed: they’re not the best family dogs, and they have a tendency to be nervous and yappy. From 2002 to 2012, chihuahuas dropped 9 places in the American Kennel Club’s (A.K.C.) list of most popular dog breeds by registration.
