A Chihuahua rescued dog named "Giganton," the Big Giant in Spanish, looks out from his cage at the Northeast Valley Animal Care Center, in Mission Hills, Calif. on Friday, Dec. 18, 2009. The dog is part of the "Project Flying Chihuahuas,'' a new initiative that transports Chihuahuas to the East Coast for adoption. The program was created in response to the overabundance of the breed in the Los Angeles area and the scarcity of the dog in the Northeast.
