On your bark, get set, go!
Chihuahuas from across the country will compete this Labor Day weekend at the 4th annual PETCO Unleashed races, where the winner will be crowned "America's Fastest Chihuahua." Get to know the 15 top tiny racers representing Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, New York City, Orange County, Orlando, Phoenix, Sacramento, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington D.C.
The PETCO Unleashed championship race will determine whether last year's winner, three-year-old Maddy of New York City, will retain or lose her title. "Chihuahuas might be the world's smallest breed of dogs, but they sure have huge personalities and are very devoted to their owners, making them a wonderful companion animal," said Greg Seremetis, PETCO director of marketing services. "The PETCO Unleashed race isn't just about which tiny racer wins the gold. It's also about creating an opportunity for pet lovers across the country to learn more about pet adoptions for Chihuahuas and other animals."
