Next to pit bulls, Chihuahuas are the No, 2 dogs put to sleep in shelters, explained Suzy Kaplan of the Ormond Beach based Rescued Hearts Animal Shelter. “They get nippy,” said Kaplan. “Some of the dogs need behavior modification. We retrain them, to make sure they’ll make a good family pet.” Kaplan is president of the non-profit foster-based organization, which takes in dogs that are next in line to be put to sleep at area shelters and animal control.
