BOISE -- The Idaho Humane Society is booked solid with small Chihuahua-mixed dogs.

The 67 dogs made the journey from California all the way to Idaho to find good homes.

The Chihuahuas came from an overwhelmed shelter in Porterville, California.

The Animal Shelter of the Wood River Valley then picked up eight of the dogs to find them homes in the Sun Valley area.

The California Chihuahuas will gradually be available for adoption this week as they get spayed and neutered.

They are really sweet, really nice dogs. They all are social, they all want a lot of attention, they all want to place to play, they are active, they are energetic, said Idaho Humane Society CommunicationOutreachCoordinator Hannah Parpart.

The first 12 dogs prepared for adoption have been moved to the PetSmart Adoption Center and are waiting to meet their new families.
