This page is dedicated to all of the people who work tirelessly to help get these dogs off the streets and into a loving, forever home – as well as to those people who provide loving homes for our dogs. It takes a tremendous amount of effort and an entire team of people in three countries to save these dogs and see them get the second chance they deserve. Each of these dogs has a story to tell. We may not know the whole story – but its the ending that counts. One of our favorites is Rey – his story is here as well.

If you’ve adopted a Baja Dog from us and would like to feature it here, please write us at Be sure to include some photos!

Amazing Happy Tails

Athena was rescued with her litter mates after being abandoned in the desert near La Paz. She was then was given to a Baja Dogs rescatista (rescuer/fosterer) to help her rehabilitate and to prepare her for adoption. She is living a great life now with her new family. Check out her story here – it is truly a happy tail!

Lucinda was found under an abandoned car foraging for food. Malnutrition was contributing to poor bone development. In addition, she was plagued by a severe case of mange. Now just look at her!

Concha – Her eyes tell you everything about her! Concha was found injured, presumably from being hit by a car. She was rescued and rehabilitated with immense love and care. When she was ready, she was adopted and lives the life she so richly deserves!

Chilis – The story continues! Chilis was found with a curved spine and unable to walk properly. What is amazing about Chilis’ rehabilitation is that it continues. Her adoptive family keeps working with her to strengthen her stance and enable her to run and play as any normal dog would. Thanks to those who rescued Chilis and believed her and to her new family for continuing the work!

Rey was found in a garbage bag and in horrible condition. We limit the photos here of his rough beginning because that is completely in the past now. Rey was rehabilitated and cared for so that he became a beautiful, sweet dog. He was adopted into a perfect family and he is now excelling as a well-trained dog with a beautiful life and future. Thanks to everyone who helped in Rey’s remarkable journey from then until now.
