America’s Fastest Chihuahua

Maddy

She may be on the small side, but Maddy from New York City showed she is definitely the top dog. On Sunday, she prevailed over 14 other pint-sized contenders to take the title of America’s Fastest Chihuahua in the PETCO Unleashed national finals.

The 2-year-old pup, weighing in at a mere 4-1/2 pounds, came out on top of the pack of the nation’s fastest Chihuahuas – including national champions from the last two years – covering the 1/18th furlong (35-foot-long) track in 2 seconds.

Never mind that Maddy is half poodle. Petco says even half-Chihuahuas are welcome.

“We knew she was a strong contender; she is very fast and focused. Last year she choked and this year she came out on top,” said pet parent Sue Yee.

Maddy’s key to success was lots of love and intense training, including sprinting, racing up stairs and swimming, said Yee who plans to give champion Maddy a huge treat when they return to the Big Apple.

    I think it should only be pure breed chihuahuas. That dog dosen’t even look like a chihuahua.
    Well i guess ill see her next year when me and my chi are in the finals.

    i think you should stop being elitist…this is not one of those best in shows - it’s petco creating a fun dog race for chihuahuas - and that means hybrids too! yeah, see you at the finals…

    Congrats Maddy! obviously like sue said, this is not a dog show ! it is a fun event for little dogs and their families to come together! so leave your issues att your doorstep before going to a family event like this, and try to appriciate the fun! I think at 4-5 lbs it’s a great accomplishment chihuahua or not! my 3lbs chihuahua and my 6 lbs mutt are both awesome! full bred chi or not! and that is what we need to focus on, doesn’t matter if you’re black or white! right!? once again Maddy congrats!
