Meet Walter

“Walter" is currently in Guadalajara, Mexico in foster care with our organization, "The MexiMutt Project".

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 2-6 weeks to arrange for the dog to fly to Oregon.

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 daily updates (photos/videos of your new MexiMutt dog while awaiting the flight to Portland).

4. Once the dog arrives in Portland, you will either pick up the dog at PDX (the airport) or come meet your new dog at Angela’s home in Sherwood, Oregon. You will sign adoption paperwork, pay the adoption fee, receive all vet records, and take your new dog home!

***Please keep in mind***

1. We are not able to hold dogs. Please be available to meet the dog once he/she arrives in Portland.

2. 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).


NAME: Walter

AGE: 7 years old (This is our vet’s guess based on their teeth).

WEIGHT: 5 lbs

BREED: Chihuahua Mix (This is our best guess, we don’t know for sure, since they were a street dog.)

DOGS: Yes

CATS: Yes

KIDS: Unknown Please remember that kids need to know to be respectful of 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. 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.

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: Walter arrived at our shelter in very poor condition, covered in fleas and very skinny. We got him the medical care he needed and have been helping him learn to trust people. Walter is at first shy and timid, but once he warms up he is very affectionate. This sweet boy is deserving of all of the love someone can offer him, and will be a perfect companion. He currently sleeps on the bed or in his dog bed, but he really loves being up close to you. Walter needs a friend who will stick with him and not leave him for too long home alone.

============================================

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 60 sterilization surgeries a month for the dogs and pay $50 USD each spay/neuter. (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 and set up a meet and greet. 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 to help the dogs.

Unfortunately, we have no facility/shelter, so we are limited on the number of dogs we can rescue off the streets, because we just don’t have enough foster homes in Mexico to help. We are only able to fly up 5 dogs/once a month (or every other month) for “The MexiMutt Project” but in the meantime, our selfless volunteers are on the streets in the communities we serve in Mexico----feeding and flea/tick treating the street dogs, as well as helping trap and sterilize the feral dogs and offering free spay/neuter services to locally owned dogs as well.

Whether you adopted, fostered, volunteered, donated, 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 2021.

These are your donations at work in Guadalajara/Chapala (Lakeside area)….

The MexiMutt Project “Free Sterilization Services” for the street dogs and owned dogs in Mexico = 1023 dogs + 46 cats sterilized ($31,574 USD spent).


We held 6 free sterilization clinics in the state of Jalisco, Mexico in 2021:

• November 27 - Micro-clinic for 11 street dogs – Chapala
• October 31 - 46 dogs and 11 cats – El Salto
• September 26 - 50 dogs and 11 cats – Ixtlahuacan
• August 29 - 46 dogs and 12 cats – El Salto
• August 1 - 52 dogs and 8 cats – El Salto
• June 26 - 50 dogs – El Salto

The MexiMutt Project “Full Bellies Fund” = 10,000+ lbs of food purchased to feed street & owned dogs ($3,860 USD spent)

The MexiMutt Project “Flea Free Fund” = on average we treat 25-30 dogs a month with a Simparica or NexGard pill – it’s about $8 USD per pill. ($2,327 USD spent). This helps the dogs that have mange and kills the fleas and ticks.

The MexiMutt Project Adoptions (locally in Mexico and stateside thru BAPBR and our other rescue partners here in the Northwest) = 65 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 2022.
