! Proudly present ALEXA - sister of ANAIS- both 6 months old lovely Retriever mix/border collie mixes!

Both ALETA and ALEXA (ANAIS has her own posting) were found in the streets of Tijuana beginning of August and brought to safety by my local Rescue contact.

I have on purpose posted a photo how both looked like before.

Both girls (we are not sure what mixed breed they are, but some retriever/border collie might be in) have had weekly checkups with a local vet for 2 months, incl. treatment against mange. As you can see in the other photos they have overcome it and they are looking wonderful.

While ANAIS is very submissive ALEXA is very controlling over her sister ANAIS. They should not be adopted in the same home as the competition and dominance will not benefit ANAIS in her own development and she will not be able to break free from her controlling sister. What is playful now might escalate in a stronger competition for affection as they grow older. has not received any valuable applications - hence both dogs are still in a good foster home in CA. ADR is planning to get them on a transport to WA as soon as there is some interest.

Both girls have been spayed, and have received all initial series/sets of Puppy vaccinations. For the transport they will also receive Rabies, a heartworm test, and a health certificate (both required for ground transportation between CA and WA. is not sure how big they will be full grown but we would say about 35 -40lbs. per November their weight is ~25 lbs.
BUT most important they are SAFE and nobody will harm, chase, or even worse try to beat them.

About AnimalDefense

About Our Rescue Group...

AnimalDefense Rescue is a small non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing primarily dogs from high-kill shelters in mostly CA, as well as homeless, lost and abandoned animals in WA , and rehoming from owners who can no longer care for them for important reasons. By building and working with committed and dog-savvy foster homes, and boarding facilities, we will be able to rescue Dogs every year, work with local veterinarians to make sure future adoption homes will have a clean and complete health record for the adopted dog, and find them well-matched, carefully screened and chosen adoption home to ensure the dog will NEVER be returned to a shelter again in his lifetime.
AnimalDefense Rescue will serve as a resource to pet owners by providing education and information on responsible pet ownership, including the importance of spay/neuter, positive behavior training, and good nutrition.

Our Adoption Process...

All AnimalDefense Rescue dogs are boarded or placed in foster homes until permanent, loving homes are found. The dogs are vaccinated, spayed or neutered, microchipped and given any necessary medical treatment during this time period.
If you have seen an AnimalDefense Rescue dog that you are interested in adopting, the process is as follows:
Step 1: The Application
Each prospective owner fills out an adoption application. All applicants must live in WA (exceptions are possible), and we ask that children in your home are at least ten years old. We usually have no limited information of history of our rescue dogs and are therefore very careful about placing them in households with children.
If you and the dog you would like to adopt seem to be well matched, we will respond to your application by email. Feel free to contact us at any time regarding the status of your application.
Step 2: The Meeting
Once your application is approved, an appointment can be made to meet the dog. You can meet the dog privately or at –if applicable- at one an adoption events, in which we participate occasionally.
We require that everyone in the immediate family, including your current dog (if you have one) come to the appointment to meet your potential new dog. Adopting a dog is a big family decision and requires a commitment from everyone. If you currently own a dog, it must be up to date on shots, spayed/neutered and wear an ID tag.
At the appointment, we will help you assess whether the dog is a good match for your lifestyle and your family or not. We can also answer any questions you may have about the adoption process.
We will then proceed with a home check. Dogs from animal shelters can be amazing escape artists. By visiting your home, we can help you identify potential escape routes, and keep your new dog safe and secure.
Step 3: The Adoption

Before you bring your new dog home, you must sign an Adoption agreement with Animal Defense Rescue. In addition, a $ 375$ adoption fee is requested. The adoption donation is non-refundable.
Please remember that adoption contributions barely cover our expenses and only defray the costs. Additional donations are greatly appreciated and will help us continue our life-saving work.
Step 4: Post Adoption Follow Up
Our goal is to help you enjoy life with your new dog to the fullest extent possible. If issues arise, or you just need some good advice, we are happy to do follow-up counseling by telephone or in person. We can also suggest local dog trainers.
