PETCO recently held the 3rd Annual National Chihuahua Race in which 15 regional winners competed. The 4-1/2 pound, 2-year-old pup named Maddy came out victorious. What does Maddy get? She gets bragging rights, a trophy, a one-year supply of Royal Canin Chihuahua dog food and a $300 PETCO Gift Card.
