Carole Kriste, of Chihuahua Rescue and Transport, a nationwide non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue, adoption and medical care of stray and homeless Chihuahuas, spoke with Star magazine after the Britney Spears purchased a Tea-cup Apple Head Chihuahua for $3,200.”I just shook my head in disbelief when I heard Britney walked into a pet store and paid more than $3,000 for a tiny Chihuahua,” Kriste remarked. “Young girls look up to Britney and she should be more responsible and learn more about rescue. This past week alone, we received 15 calls from people around the Los Angeles area, who wanted to give up their Chihuahuas. For the money she spent, she could have helped many of them.”
