We are listing this dog for adoption in Oregon now, so we can find him/her the perfect family BEFORE they arrive to Oregon..... We have not yet booked this dogs flight to Oregon but once we have an adopter lined up for this dog, then we will get him/her on the next flight to PDX for adoption. Please note: It can take 2-4 weeks to arrange for the dog to fly to Oregon due to the USDA customs import paperwork.
PLEASE READ ALL OF THIS......
Our adoption program is exclusive and personal. Here is how it works…
1. Angela Adams – the founder and director of “The MexiMutt Project/Born Again Pit Bull Rescue” will call you and approve your adoption application for the dog, and she will chat more in depth with you about our adoption process.
2. We will purchase the flight to Oregon (this is already included in the adoption fee). Angela will communicate every detail with you!
3. Angela will text you weekly updates (photos/videos of your new MexiMutt dog while awaiting the flight to Portland).
4. Once the dog arrives in Portland, you will pick up the dog at PDX (the airport), pay the adoption fee, receive all vet/medical records, and take your new dog home!
5. We simply do not have enough time to respond to all the Petfinder email messages/inquires and phone calls we get about our dogs. We work full time jobs and we run this organization in our “free time”. We are all volunteers, including our director, Angela Adams. She does NOT get paid for her work and time dedicated to our organization.... Please, if you are interested in one of our dogs, FILL OUT AN ONLINE APPLICATION. (Read through this entire page and you will find the application link at the bottom).
AGE: 10 to 12 months old (estimated by our veterinarian based on their teeth).
WEIGHT: 40 lbs
BREED: Pit Bull/Lab/Greyhound Mix (This is our best guess, we don’t know for sure, since he/she was a street dog.)
KIDS: Yes, however she jumps up sometimes, so probably best with older children- but please remember that kids need to know to be respectful of the dog’s space, bodies, and toys/food.
HOUSEBROKEN: No, not 100% yet -- Please keep in mind that our dogs are rescued off the streets, they are NOT always 100% housebroken and will need time and patience to adjust. Even in a foster home in Mexico, the dogs are often living in an environment with no carpet or grass or living outside. In the house, it is usually tile flooring and outside it is dirt/concrete. Most of our dogs transition well and only need about 1-2 weeks to get on a potty schedule/routine.
LEASH TRAINED: Working on it -- most dogs in Mexico have never walked on a leash before, he/she will need to be desensitized to leash walking and you will need to work on it slowly with them.
ABOUT: Meet Matilde! She was one of four dogs that were found at an an auto repair lot. Neighboring folks were feeding them and giving them water to survive. Her foster mom Patty rescued her and took her home to be in foster care. Matilda lives with other dogs, she is great with any size dog and loves to play with them. She loves walks, and adores being with people. Matilde shines bright with intelligence and social abilities!

Each dog we fly from Mexico to Oregon for adoption costs us a minimum of $550 USD (if they have no other medical issues), so any extra of the adoption fee goes BACK into our programs to help fund the spay/neuter surgeries for the street dogs and owned dogs in the poor rural villages in Mexico. We average about 55 sterilization surgeries a month for the dogs and pay about $50 USD each spay/neuter surgery. (It’s estimated that 70% of Mexico’s 18 million dogs live on the street, either born as strays or abandoned by their owners, the largest number of street dogs in Latin America.)
Please know that we are a 100% volunteer ran organization, with no paid employees and we work full time jobs and have our own families to care for as well. Due to the large number of applications, we receive - we are not able to reply to everyone individually. If we think you are the right match for our dog, we will reach out to you. Please understand that we really love our dogs and are very invested in their success in life. We try very hard to place our dogs into homes that will make both the dog and their people happy. Thank you in advance for understanding.
Most of our adoptable dogs are homeless/abandoned street dogs or owner surrenders in Mexico. Please, follow us on Instagram: @MexiMuttProject and Facebook: “The MexiMutt Project” to see what we are doing in our community.

Whether you adopted, fostered, volunteered, donated, shared a social media post or helped us raise awareness for dogs in need, we thank you for your efforts! Your support has made all the difference for The MexiMutt Project in 2022.
These are your donations at work in Guadalajara/Chapala Mexico (Lakeside area) in 2022….
The MexiMutt Project “Free Sterilization Services” for the street dogs and owned dogs in Mexico = 887 dogs + 71 cats sterilized ($31,665 USD spent).
The MexiMutt Project “Full Bellies Fund” = 16,000+ lbs of food purchased to feed street & owned dogs ($7,210 USD spent)
The MexiMutt Project “Flea Free Fund” = on average we treat 30+ dogs a month with a Simparica TRIO or NexGard pill – it’s about $11 USD per pill. ($3,380 USD spent). This helps the dogs that have mange and kills the fleas/ticks.
The MexiMutt Project Adoptions (locally in Mexico and stateside thru BAPBR and our other rescue partners in the Northwest) = 100 dogs placed into loving forever homes!
We couldn't do these things without your support. THANK YOU for believing in us and supporting us. By contributing a donation to The MexiMutt Project, you'll be part of making a difference to the dogs in need in 2023.
