Let's post some pics of Baja dogs


Spotted this guy when we rolled into San Evaristo on a boat a couple years back.

I remember that guy*, but not his name! He is a little boxer mix with a bum leg that my dog and I met in 2014. The dogs got along well, and his human let us use his palapa to camp out right there on the beach. His dog spent the night with us!

This is "Tractor" in 2012 at Bahia de los Angeles, outside of Costa del Sol. He was the dog before Scooby.

It was our first time riding there. Brought a couple TTRs down for the kids.

The white dog is ours and his friend is Kamper who we rescued in La Ventana last winter. We had visitors from Oregon and they ended up adopting him!

With or without cross hairs.

Everybody brings down a dog.
Then another dog so it has something to play with.

And they love their pets, and their pets love them unconditionally.

A well-trained dog in Baja is a rarity.

As a tent camper with an outdoor kitchen, I find they are a serious nuisance.

Peeing on the tent, stealing items, barking all night, strewing garbage, chasing wildlife, crapping, kicking sand all over, raising dust, hitting knees at high speed, jamming noses where they don't belong...the list goes on and on.

I'm much more mellow now that I have an electric fence.

You set up an electric fence around your campsite?

But you're right, too many people let their dogs run loose at campsites.

We travel with two small dogs. Usually asleep in their truck which they let us use or on long leashes when outdoors.

You might be surprised that I don’t disagree with Vandy. My last few trips I would have set up an electric fence if I had one. My experience has been that generally the local “Baja dogs” are timid and sweet, whether they are strays or owned by a local. I can’t remember a single time in the last 30 years a Baja dog bothering me (aside from chasing my motorcycle, which is an inherent flaw in the DNA of a random selection of all dogs). It is often impossible to coax a true Baja dog close enough to share some food or water.

Gringo dogs on the other hand, like many of their owners, show up like they own the place. If these dogs were human they would order strawberry margaritas, jump up on the dinner table and request La Cucaracha from the mariachis. They don’t respect your space, your peace, or your stuff.

On my last big trip a couple years ago, we were truck/tent camping on a quiet beach on Bahía Concepción. At sunset/dinner time, a small p/u truck with Oregon plates showed up with 2 guys who started howling and hollering in excitement that they arrived at such a beautiful and peaceful place. They let FIVE dogs out who began emptying their bowels and marking every square inch of the beach including our outdoor kitchen. I said, “Hey! Can you control your dogs? We’re cooking over here.”

One of the dudes yelled, “They’ll learn!”.

They didn’t learn. The new neighbors hiked inland a bit and came back dragging as much wood as they could loot to built a bonfire you could see from the moon. I decided to pack up and move on when their country music started pumping out clichés obsessed with the N word. I hate leaving a campsite at night, but not as much as I hate confrontation and violence.

I know that’s an extreme example and I’ve met plenty of gringo dogs in Baja I really liked. I never blame the dog for bad behavior. It’s the owners, always. I promise, if you ever camp near me, my rescued ex-Caliente racer greyhound from Tijuana, who is spoiled now, will be as gentle and timid as a stray Baja dog and his poop will be scooped. Plus, he would be on a short leash.

I have tons of new Baja dog photos but my website has not been updated in so long I’m certain every dog on it has jumped that rainbow bridge. I will update it soon, then throw you all a bone.

Be peaceful. Be respectful. Your kids and dogs learn from you.

Here are a few pix from the last few years to keep this train from wrecking -

Thanks JZ for the post - uplifting for sure!

Here's PJ from many years ago .. if you knew him, you could read his eyes - he loved being aboard and especially that moment.

Sorry to see someone did a number on the shell arrangement at Panchos grave, maybe some of those gringo dogs bajadogs refers to made a pass thru.

JZ, thanks for posting for me!


Those were my shots taken in 2014, That was my 15 year old dog Cleo on her last trip to Baja, the best dog ever!

The top photo was at Pancho's camp at San Rafael, and the second was her wading in the spring near the Chapala junction,

Never underestimate dog lovers. A few years back some hunters in Oregon gave a harsh lesson to an individual they encountered severely beating a dog with a club who was tied to a tree. They wound up beating this individual to within an inch of his life and taking the dog. Probably used the same club on him. He was interviewed in the hospital but was unable to remember much about his attackers. The case was never solved as far as I know.
