RENO, MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- The 15th annual "Running of the Chihuahuas" was held this weekend at Bully's sports bar in Spanish Springs.
In addition to the races, pups competed in a doggie costume contest, and food and drink specials were available for those in the crowd. All donations from the Chihuahua races benefit the SPCA, one of the only no-kill shelters in Northern Nevada.
Last year the Chihuahua races earned more than $2,000. Organizers hoped to raise more than $3,000 dollars this year.
