A matted little dog saved from the streets of Tijuana, Mex.

Tijuana, Mex. – Abandoned on the streets of Tijuana, Mex., she was lucky to have been rescued before being run over, beaten to death, or die from a number of diseases to which stray dogs are susceptible.

After being picked up by an independent rescuer, she was networked on social media. Many were tagged, including Crossing Guardians – which agreed to take her under its care.

She was fully vetted by Dr. Juan Esteban Dominguez Uscanga with Goumao Veterinaria, groomed and sterilized. Terribly matted and dirty, no one knew of her breed. All they could see was a bedraggled small dog who appeared to be in bad shape.

After her grooming, her breed became apparent. She – now named Dee Dee – is a miniature Schnauzer with natural ears and an undocked tail. Her ears, however, perk up like satellites – a very endearing feature.

She was fostered while recovering from homelessness and after being sterilized.



Once she was healthy and fully recovered from surgery, a rescue-to-rescue transfer was made with California Miniature Schnauzer Rescue. She is currently being fostered in Palmdale, Calif.

Dee Dee is a one-year-old, 12-lb., female, miniature Schnauzer. She has a quietly sweet disposition. She will make a wonderful addition to a family. Schnauzers tend to be “yappers,” though.

Dee Dee is adorable. Having been abandoned on the streets of Tijuana, her beauty was buried beneath matted fur and dirt.

  1. SO wonderful to see her transformation and adoption into such a loving family. Thank you Crossing Guardians and Naida

  2. We adopted a former street dog from San Diego’s Scratch My Belly Rescue that was treated by Dr. Uscanga. She looks like a miniature Golden Retriever. Her left rear leg had healed improperly when she was a puppy, but she’s learned to adapt and can outrace our other rescue, a chiweenie.

    Thank you for this new addition to our family!
