South Florida Chihuahua Meetup (SFCM) Pages

Hi! Thank you for your interest in the South Florida Chihuahua Meetup (SFCM). Our group is about getting the dogs together to have fun, socialization (oh so important for a Chihuahua) and exercise. It is amazing watching so many chihuahuas in one place. I have to admit, the people seem to be having just as much fun as the dogs (maybe more!) A bunch of members usually bring blankets or low-slung lawn-chairs (since Chihuahuas normally have short legs) to get down to a Chi's level. Everyone just relaxes and watches their dogs play. The shy ones usually are in someone's lap, but they have fun too.

Where else can you talk endlessly about chihuahuas? If you are like me, my non-Chi friends and family (I know crazy people) only let me go on for so long about Chihuahuas or as my husband likes to say "Chis" at our Meetup, we want to hear everything Chi! Chihuahua talk is enjoyed and encouraged at Meetups and on the Message Board!

If there is any doubt that we have the best attendance, members and discussions, come to a Meetup and you will be hooked! At our recent Meetups I counted so many people, and don't forget, many of our members have multiple Chihuahuas!! Hope you decide to join and we see you and your Chi(s) at the next Meetup!

PLEASE NOTE: Before joining the group, please take a few minutes to review the South Florida Chihuahua Meetup Membership Policy and Message Board Rules and Guidelines:

I also wanted to share that a lot of our members belong to a few other local Chihuahua or Small Dog Meetup groups so if you want to have more opportunities for Chi-Playtime - be sure to check out these other Meetup groups: Links to Other Chihuahua or Small Dog Meetups

** SFCM's (previously BCCM) HISTORY **

This Meetup began shortly after Kelly (Bell, Buddy and Charlie's Mom), who is a former member and Organizer of the group, moved to Florida in October 2006. She saw all of the wonderful dog parks that Broward County has to offer and soon began to take her chihuahuas to play. She noticed that her chis didn't like playing with the larger dogs. They were both on edge and didn't seem to enjoy themselves unless there happened to be other chihuahuas at the park. Her chis loved being around other chihuahuas, so the idea was born....a Chihuahua play group. She started searching the web for play groups (just as you probably did if you are reading this.) She found the Meetup webpages and saw that several people were interested in chi meetups and play groups but none had been started yet in the Broward area. So she took the plunge and started this group. Melissa (Lola and Kennedy's Mom) was the first brave soul to join!! The first meeting had only three people but I am proud to say we have grown to 100+ members (and still counting.)
