"CHAPLIN" 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 2-4 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”. 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: 12 months
BREED: Labrador Retriever mix
DOGS: Yes! Both big and small
CATS: No, unless the cat is dog-savy
KIDS: 8 years and older. Kids always need to know to be respectful of dog’s (especially young dogs) space, bodies, and toys/food.
HOUSEBROKEN: No, not yet – Chaplin still currently lives on the streets of Mexico, since we don’t have any open foster homes... (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.)
LEASH TRAINED: No, Chaplin lives on the street and has never had the joy of going on a walk because he already lived outside.
CRATE TRAINED: Yes, his first time in a crate to the vet he did great.
CAR RIDES: Unknown, he did good the one time he rode in a car.
SHEDS: A normal to low amount for the breed
ABOUT: Chaplin is still out on the streets, at this very moment, and will be until we can find him a home in Oregon. Please consider adopting Chaplin or sending out his profile to someone looking for a dog. It is urgent that we get him off the street because he will make a great home dog, but we have no room to take him in and cannot afford to board him 24/7 until he is adopted. Chaplin is the brother of a dog we already rescued, but we know we just can’t leave him alone. He is already social with people and continues to have hope that there are people who will be kind to him. He even learned what the Meximutt car looks like and gets excited when it comes because that means food! Chaplin loves affection and is very mellow for a puppy. He has so much potential and needs to come off the streets before something happens to him. He doesnt know what its like being a home dog and doing things like walking on a leash or having to go outside to potty, because right now all he wants to do is come inside. This is not the first dog we have adopted straight out of a situation like this, so he will adjust fine and just needs to be given a chance.

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 75 sterilization surgeries a month for the dogs and pay $35 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.

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 couldnt do these things without your support. THANK YOU for believing in us and supporting us. By contributing a donation to The MexiMutt Project, youll be part of making a difference to the dogs in need in 2022.
