HUNDREDS OF GAME BRED CHIHUAHUAS DISCOVERED IN LARGEST CALIFORNIA DOG FIGHTING BUST OF ALL TIME
That’s right, fighting Chihuahuas
Dynamites come in small packages, but no one expected this. Authorities have raided a Chula Vista property thought to be used for the purpose of breeding, training, and fighting Chihuahua dogs. The scale of the operation is mind bending, with more than 250 game bred fighting Chihuahuas rescued so far. The bust turned out to be the largest dog fighting ring ever discovered in the state of California.
At the same time, it was the smallest. Chihuahuas are the smallest breed of dog, and not typically used for fighting. Most people associate dog fighting with pit bulls, and for good reason. This is the first documented case of game Chihuahuas, and is hopefully not the sign of a trend.
“It makes zero sense. Who wants to see two little Chihuahuas fight?”
Asks deputy Mark Roberson, who has never seen anything like what he saw on the Chula Vista farm. “There were little fighting rings, obstacle courses, cages, scales, all sorts of stuff.” the owner of the home has been arrested, and the whole thing shut down. The investigation is early on, but there is already evidence of gambling, as well as videos of the brutal fights.
A book of lineage was also discovered, naming champions, grand champions, etc. In other words, this was serious business, and the dogs were game bred for generations. Preliminary interviews are equally stunning, with spectators describing the most vicious brawls in the history of the dog fighting spectacle.
They all mention one name in particular, Chupacabra.
He was the ultimate champion. A true killer, and an absolute terror in the ring. Undefeated with more than 20 fights, the mere whisper of “Chupacabra the fighting Chihuahua” was enough to make the hairs stand up on the necks of other trainers. No one was eager to subject their dog to that test. Chupacabra is now retired, and in search of a loving family to call his very own, as are 249 other adorable warriors.
