Bringing a BAJA Puppy NOB


My daughter lives in SJC and her schnauzer had some puppies, she called and asked if we would like to have one of them and of course we said we would be delighted to have a puppy for her brothers (for the whole family as a matter of fact) to enjoy and take care of. She's taking the puppy to get him vaccinated and "fixed" with a local vet and get the certificates so he can fly back to TJ where we'll pick him up and bring him across the border to his new home.

There's a thread from '06 ( http://forums.bajanomad.com/viewthread.php?tid=18940&got... ) and most everyone agrees that the only thing needed to bring a puppy back into the US is the rabies vaccination certificate by a licensed Vet.

Does anyone out there know if this info still applies?

Is it possible to rent a pet carrier from Volaris or Aereomexico?

Once again... MUCHAS GRACIAS AMIGOS NOMADAS....!!!

I hear of people taking Baja dogs north, a lot.
JUST have current vaccination paperwork in order. Ask Graham (Mackintosh) about this, as well.

Thanks for your reply SFandH, I did do a google research before posting, what I'm asking fellow Nomads is any further experiences (personal) that may be helpful or anything to watch out for.... in a minute or two.

Well you didn't say that, you asked if vaccinations still apply.

most everyone agrees that the only thing needed to bring a puppy back into the US is the rabies vaccination certificate by a licensed Vet.

Does anyone out there know if this info still applies?

I apologize for being snarky. Must be the heat and humidity.

Last December at Tecate, was the first time I was asked for proof of rabies shots. I had a recent health certificate, although it was over thirty days old. I held it up to show him I had one, but he did not ask to see it.

The agent actually commented that "they" are getting stricter with enforcement, and seemed annoyed with 'them', whoever they were.

You are going to a vet anyway, so I would recommend that you get a statement from the veterinarian about the dog's health. If the dog is old enough for the first dose of anti-parasite medication, that should also be documented. If the pup is still too young, get the meds and prescription and have them with you.

Good luck with the pup!

FWIW, Canada is also getting stricter, I know one person who was recently denied entry with his dog for lack of a health certificate.




If you are not living on the edge, you are taking up too much space!

"Could do better if he tried!" Report card comments from most of my grade school teachers. Sadly, still true!

If the pup is old enough for shots.....get them. You'll want to anyway.
Aside from that.....they profile dogs too, so make it look clean and civilized......maybe a collar for instance. It all goes a long way if it doesn't look like a street salvage.

I have brought two "rescue" puppies back. One was on the passenger seat floor and may not have been seen. The other was in the back with seats folded down. She was happily wagging her tail at the agent. He said nothing.

I would still recommend the shots and paperwork. I just wasn't able to find the Mulege vet.

One should believe in God, because even Google doesn't know everything.

FYI: there is a very nice, very knowledgeable vet in Los Cueves that speaks perfect English with reasonable rates.

Just don't bring up the fact that it is a "Baja Dog". It is just "your dog".

We have brought back three dogs from Baja. They have been back and forth over the border, both ways, probably 40+ times over the years.

A "Baja" dog going north is no different than a U.S. dog that has traveled south of the border and is returning north.

Just have current rabies cert available, if asked.

We have had more questions asked by Mexican officials going south than by US officials going north.

The few times that Mex officials have asked, it always brings a big smile to the official's face when I say, "The dogs are Mexican and are returning home after a vacation north of the border!"
