Jun 29, 2007 doncha
Sir, it looks like you have yourself a Border Hound. That dog looks like it has some border collie in him. Great pup.
Jun 29, 2007 fourbaddogs
I love Baja - I think he might have a little Border Collie from the coloring and coat. Bicuits all around! Lots of love to your sweet baby. I can't go a day without my Daily Puppy! ;-)

Baja says: "Ahem...Excuse me, sir. Did you say you think I'm the best dog in the world? Rest assured, I am!!!!"

Baja is a gorgeous, special little guy who travelled all the way to New York from Tennessee just so you could have the best dog in the world. :) I'm betting that he knew that he was headed for the best Dad in the world ;) Love that beautiful boy and have many wonderful joy filled years together. BTW, I agree that his coat is Border Collie, but those are definitely Bassett feet - what a delightful combination! Hugs and kisses to Baja - and 11 million biscuits!

I think he is just precious-- I'm so glad that you decided to adopt a mutt- they are my favorite 'breed' (being I'm one myself ;-D. & from Tenn, orig) I just love the coloring on his face- those dark eyes and ears then that white strip coming down to the white snout. He is just a doll baby. I hope you have many happy year with this sweetie

Tons of biscuits for cute little Baja!!!!!!!!!!
:) :) :)
Jun 29, 2007 jayej
Oh my GOD. I'm dying over here. Baja is just perfect! Those pink paws? You're killing me! If you'd shown me that puppy belly, I might have seriously died. What an adorable, perfect little boy.
Jun 29, 2007 lion041705
he is just GORGEOUS and so perfect....
Jun 29, 2007 hanhpote
I love him so much! He looks exactly like my springer spaniel did as a puppy. I'm thinking he might be part springer!!
Jun 29, 2007 Bonnie74
He is precious...i'm wondering if maybe a little border collie??? either way he is a handsome boy.....ENJOY!!!!!!
Jun 29, 2007 k_soggie
AWW!!! I definitely agree with the border collie comments, his color, markings and face look VERY border collie! But oh my gosh, those FEET! They are just adorable, like the rest of him. Whatever the combination, he is 100% cute! Enjoy this sweetie. :)
Jun 29, 2007 setters
He was obviously the reason you missed out on the Bulldog. Lucky Baja and lucky you. You have got to love the feet and that 'love me' look.

Best wishes Baja for a happy, healthy and long life in your new home.
Jun 29, 2007 misstotegirl
Your little sweetheart looks to be part border collie. I had a full-blood BC a few years ago and he was a wonderful dog. Your Baja is so adorable and I hope you have many wonderful years with him!
Jun 29, 2007 sneezy and dach
Stubby puppy legs are my favorite thing in the whole world!
Jun 29, 2007 lindicator
Baja the magnificent!!! Never call a dog that perfect looking a mutt! He has what I call "talking eyes". They just melt you. You are so lucky to have found each other.
Jun 29, 2007 pencilwizard
Awww he is soo cute especailly with those short little legs, love him, hope you have lots of fun with new pal.

My first post - Baja is a wonderful little guy. The Daily Puppy is the highlight of my morning! Story's like yours warm my heart. All the best and keep him well loved - it pays big dividends!
Jun 29, 2007 caraschotch
WOW--- a Border Basset! Baja is an adorable guy, and many thanks to you for saving him! What a dear, sweet face he has. Hope you have many wonderful years together...

I am in love! Rediculously cute.
Jun 29, 2007 Liam4276
I want one just like him! That's the great thing about mutts, they're one-of-a-kind. Sooooo cute!!
Jun 29, 2007 tammatha
Good for Baja that you decided to adopt! Doesn't it feel good to save a doggie, what a beautiful heinz 57 this baby is. I certainly see Border Collie in him!

Hooray for the SPCA!

FOUR PAWS UP For “Baja The Mutt” -- That’s *Our* Kind of Pup!

Best Wishes from All The Gang @ Muttsville
Jun 29, 2007 Loizhanne
[color=red][B]That is not a mutt. That is a dog collection! Baja has got the neatest feet I've ever seen! What a baby he is. Millions of biscuits from me....what do you mean, 11? With a face like this? Oh, well, I guess 11 it is. Lots of joy and blessings![/color][/B]
Jun 29, 2007 Bobbie
What a way to wake up! The absolutely most adorable little boy in the world!How could anyone ever have put this darling into any kind of shelter? Were they nuts? But then maybe it was all meant to be, so that he would end up right where he is and with the parents that he got. Baja, so many bisquits to you that I lost count and more belly rubs that any one little puppy could stand! Grow up to be a fabulous adult dog and give your Daddy all the love he could possible hold. Because I am betting that you are getting the same. Happy life together!
Jun 29, 2007 ruk
Baja is sooooooo very cute! Her face looks a little "Springer Spaniel" like!
Jun 29, 2007 Jenny Yorke
What a beautiful pup! I reckon his mum was chased by a border collie, and he caught her!
Jun 29, 2007 Mary V
Well Hey! I can see Bassett all over this boy! Yes, he does look borderish but those BIG feet, short legs, chest and adorable markings on the face remind me of a Bassett(coould this be because I own two?). Either way, you have picked a winner and kudos to you for rescuing him!

What a sweetheart. My sister got her dog at a petsmart adoption event and he was the greatest dog. Enjoy him.
Jun 29, 2007 Terry C
I have a 2-1/2 year old fullbred Boston Terrier (my second Boston) and an almost-17 years young "mutt" - we think she's terrier, papillion and Sheltie.

Ain't nuthin' wrong with "mutts".
Jun 29, 2007 oneacd
Definately some Border collie in there! the markings are classic (ticking included). Lucky he's got those little legs, or you'd never keep up with him! LOL! He is absolutely stunning and you are lucky you missed out on the bull dog! Mutts rule!
Jun 29, 2007 Solomons Mom
What a handsome pup! God Bless you for adopting a rescue. My 4 are all rescues. I love bulldogs, but he is much cuter than a bulldog!

What an adorable doll!!!!! Just sweet as can be this little puppy!!! I'm so glad you two found each other....truly meant to be!!!!

so sweet!!!!!
Jun 29, 2007 gem1945
Baja may be a mixed up little doggie, but I agree, he's got the best of all his ancestry rolled into a beautiful little pup!!!! You are indeed lucky to have found him. So glad you rescued him. Best of luck with him, may he bring you all much joy and happiness as you return the same to him. Lots of belly rubs and snuggles, and some kisses from our Dorie dog. :-)
Jun 29, 2007 roorz
Cute and he really looks like he has some Springer Spaniel in there! Good luck!
Jun 29, 2007 bunnied816
Yeah!! MUTTS RULE!!!! Just look at that guy! What a hunk - I'm in love!! I'm so glad you didn't get that English Bulldog (not slamming EB's here); thanks for rescuing your unique little man! Many happy tailwags to you both!
Jun 29, 2007 Lily'smom
Well, what ever he is, he is just a little sweetie pie. Thank you so much for rescuing him. He will have a wonderful life now thanks to you. He's a lucky little boy!
Jun 29, 2007 debora
aahhhhh, Baja is divine!! Such classic black and white colouring, to die for eyes, marvellous puppy expressions....such a pure squeaky clean coat. This dog is an absolute keeper, especially with the border collie traits - lucky people, lucky doggie!
Jun 29, 2007 luvmybeagle

Jun 29, 2007 maggie's_mom
Baja is a cutie pie :). The first breed I thought of when I saw him was also a border collie. He is precious! Congratulations!
Jun 29, 2007 shellyrini
Oh my gosh!! This puppy is in the top of the cutest I have seen so far. What a love. Such an expressive face and those eyes are to die for. I could stare at her picture all day long. I wish you all the best with Baja, and may she bless your life for many many years.
Jun 29, 2007 eslapin
Awwww, what a cutie-patootie!!! Yay for rescue dogs!!! Baja is one handsome pup, it looks like you both lucked out when you found each other.
Jun 29, 2007 BOBANDOSO
Thank you
Jun 29, 2007 mtframsey
Thank you for helping out and adopting a puppy from a rescue organization. Even purebred dogs are available through local and nationwide shelters, humane societies and rescue groups. They are the best dogs always because they know you have saved their lives. This pup is so darling! Definately a Border Collie in the woodpile somewhere. I have been in the veterinary and shelter industry for a long time. You will get more blessings from adopting this dog than you can imagine. Thank you again for opening your home to him!
Jun 29, 2007 Dogsrule17
TOO cute... I LOVE his legs - they're so cute and, well, stumpy, but in a totally cute way. I love you Baja!
Jun 29, 2007 juliej
I don't know - Baja resembles my lovely Field Springer with the freckling. What an adorable baby. He is the best dog in the world for you. Many, many snuggles, kisses and happy years to you!
Jun 29, 2007 Rena1955
I just love Baja. He looks like my dog Maddie who is also a shelter dog, She is a border collie/ hound mix . Please give Baja lots of belly rubs for me. May you have many wonderful years together.
Jun 29, 2007 2doggies
This little one is just too perfect for words! I think he's WONDERFUL!!! Enjoy your sweet new baby!!!
Jun 29, 2007 peggykate
Baja is adorable, love the little freckles on his paws. Thank you for rescuing him and giving him a wonderful home!
Jun 29, 2007 cindsue
He sure doesn't look like a mutt to me. He is just soooooo precious. I would adopt him in a minute. 5000 bisquits.
Jun 29, 2007 dogsrule
Cute Cute Cute Cute!

Looks like part Border Collie. I know those markings and freckles anywhere. I had one growing up. Smartest dog I ever knew. Just wonderful.

Good luck with your little fur baby! :)
Jun 29, 2007 twodogsthreecats
I definitely see border collie in him. But mostly I see adorable! I am giggling at the image of him trying to run around herding on those stubbly little legs! Hee hee hee. What a beaut, many happy times to you and Baja!
Jun 29, 2007 j000wxe
Oh my GOODNESS - he is adorable! Everyone that heard my "AHHH" stopy by my desk to see him. He would be at my home if I would have found him at PETSMART. Great story!
Jun 29, 2007 bordercolliedude
Your new puppy is really cute. He caught my attention because he really looks like he has border collie in him....If so he will be extremely sweet and super sensitive! Also super protective of his family.
Jun 29, 2007 mayachees
Beautiful pup. I have to agree, looks like he has some border collie in him.
Jun 29, 2007 luvmybc
He definantly has border collie in him. My bc had big paws as a pup too, but she grew into them. He is precious. I have a border collie and a beagle mix and they're my babies. BC's are very active and loyal. Enjoy your new baby!
Jun 29, 2007 dkritter
Oh my goodness! He's SOOOO cute! Border Collie and Bassett Hound it looks like? He's adorable! Great for you to rescue him, enjoy him!
Jun 29, 2007 sucker4dawgs
Awww goodness gracious. Look at that FACE. High-5 on the rescue. I'm sure he'll make you a great companion :o)
Jun 29, 2007 jimandtrishp
Way too cute for words!
Jun 29, 2007 weaselsmom
I love short legged dogs. And this one is totally precious. This is the BEST example of how wonderful it is to rescue dogs- what a great life you will both have, now that you have each other.
Jun 29, 2007 barbmae
Wow, my heart melts at this puppy! What a beautiful face and excellent tongue!! :-) I agree with so many who made comments that it is wonderful that this is a mixed breed and that you actually saved his life. The word "mutt" is not a bad word - how many of us are mixed breeds? No need to figure out what breeds went into this dog - why would it matter? He's just beautiful and happy and I think you will fall in love with him again each day! Really, this is one of the cutest puppies I've seen recently, and we've all seen a lot of cute ones. Wish I could give him a hug!
Jun 29, 2007 soshyviolet
i love that you can see the different breeds in him. Definitely basset with those short stubby legs. What a great deed you did in adopting him :) We need more people like you who adopt from shelters.
Jun 29, 2007 betty2dogs
Absolutely adorable. I love his stubby legs and sweet face. Kisses!
Jun 29, 2007 BeckersUNC
SO freaking cute!
Jun 29, 2007 snuggles19973
I love him. He is sooooooo cute. He is so lucky to have you find him and give him a very special place in your hearts. He will fill your life with such love and happiness you will never be sorry you got him. I love all his pictures and as you already know "mutts" are beautiful pups.
Jun 29, 2007 luvmyLexie
I swear, Baja must be one of the most goreous dogs i've ever seen! I absolutely LOVE the coat and markings, and the basset hound in him makes him the cutest little guy!
Jun 29, 2007 iluvanimals
OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I luv the name!!!!!! And i luv how he has those pink paws!!!!!!!!!!!!! Give lots him hugs & kisses!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jun 29, 2007 bopeep
Mutt is an excellent breed, and so, Baja, you are excellent. I agree if everyone would adopt from shelters, more babies would have a happy life. Baja, you and your parents are very lucky. Hugs and kisses.
Jun 29, 2007 koolkiwi33
Really cute puppy!! I agree that he looks like he has some border collie in him.
Jun 29, 2007 daria
Rescue dogs are the best! Baja is the cutest little pup. Please give him hugs & belly kisses from me! Thank you for the big smile today.
Jun 29, 2007 sdv in slc
I love Baja!!!! What an adorable mutt (btw, I agree w/ bunnied816...Mutts RULE!!!). Congratulations on your new family member. May you have a long and healthy life together.
Jun 29, 2007 HighSchoolMusicalgal
[b][color=green] Oh what a cute puppy! He is so weey with his big fluffy head and tiny body! M~U~T~T! lol[/b] [/color]
Jun 29, 2007 kathyd125
What a cutie! Those expressive! and I love the playful little pose in the comment above me - priceless! Shelter / rescue dogs rule! That's where I got mine. You've changed his life forever, and he has no doubt changed yours. Amazing the impact of one little dog, isn't it?! No puppy mills for me!
Jun 29, 2007 yoliesf
Oh - I'm in wuv!!!

He looks like he could be a stuffed puppy dog that you just want to squeeze and carry under your arm and take with you everywhere you go.

I love his name too!

Jun 29, 2007 DelilahandSpencer
As the mom of a beagle/basset hound mix, I just melted when I saw Baja's stubby front legs!! He is so adorable!!
Jun 29, 2007 meeshabeth
suuuuch a sweetie!!!! he looks so soft and snuggly. and he definitely looks border collie-ish! XOXO little baja!
Jun 29, 2007 lilyj
I agree with Border hound, or possible Basset Collie. He looks like someone stuck basset legs on a border collie pup. It's possible that you've just adopted a dog that will be able to track game then herd it back to you. Or one who'll set off on his own to corral sheep then bay to alert you he's done. :) Either way, he's sure to be a wonder dog.

Regardless of breed, what he is is painfully cute. There should be law. I'm dying here... :) 11 Biscuits, but only because that's all I can give.
Jun 29, 2007 MomandTwoGirlsLovePups
I'm soooooooooooooooo glad they rescued him!
Jun 29, 2007 twinkelbelpeach
What a beautiful little boy he is. And bless you for giving him a good home. I hope you have many happy years together.
Jun 29, 2007 muttsrule
What a baby :)
Remember Mutts Rule!
Jun 29, 2007 sjh
What an adorable baby boy. He is so lucky that you rescued him. I think it is fate that you missed out on the bulldog and found him. The pics with his tongue hanging out are the best!.
Jun 29, 2007 testsub
MUTTZ RULE!!!!! My best dogs have all been of the mutt breed.
Jun 29, 2007 nsshiley
Baja, you are a major heart toucher. So glad you Dad put your pictures up here. I printed the last one to send to a cousin in a nursing home. I wanted you to know your gorgeous face is going across the country to help cheer her up. I bet she shares your picture with others there. Thank you!
Jun 29, 2007 doglovernvegas
Baja is so beautiful and I agree with others I think there's some Border Collie in him. Thank you for opening your heart to a mixed breed rescue dog. They are the best! Both my boys were adopted from shelters that run adoptions at Petsmart here in Las Vegas. My first, a 5 year old chihuahua/terrier with maybe some dachshound mix was rescued from a kill shelter too. The second, a 2 year old hound mix (beagle, basset, American foxhound??) was an owner turn in. Both have been so loving, trainable and well behaved; I couldn't have asked for better. We go to Petsmart just about every weekend for supplies, grooming or just to visit the ladies from the rescue group (we are on a first name basis). There are so many adoptable dogs that need loving homes that I personally will always have a rescue dog. Pure breds are wonderful too (I love all dogs) but the money that goes to purchase one could give homes to 10 rescue dogs.
Jun 29, 2007 stellasmom
My head might explode from the intense cuteness! What an awesome mutt!
Jun 29, 2007 sylvanbliss
Viva Baja! What else is left to say? Much happiness to you!

Bless you for saving this wonderful canine. He is so handsome! I love the picture with his the tip of his little pink tongue showing. He certainly is not a "mutt" but a "jewel".
Jun 29, 2007 piobaire
11x11,000 biscuits to Baja AND you. YAY you for adopting an orphan and a mutt to boot! You're going to have years and years of love and fun. What would life be without animals? Give that little boy a head scratch and a tuchus rub from Idaho!
Jun 29, 2007 Lizanne
Who cares what he is. He is such a bundle of CUTENESS. He looks like a great, loving baby who will be a good pal to have with you always to spoil, hug, love, pet, walk with, groom, play, and live with for many happy years. Thanks for giving this sweet boy a home.

Jun 29, 2007 2dognyt
Awwww!! dont kno if i can add anything else to all the loving comments on lil Baja-boy!! he is so sweet and innocent...all dogs are cuz they only do bad when they are treated bad by others...i digress!! and biscuits to you (aka biscotti with the morning coffee and daily puppy reads) for getting your baby from a boys, Loki and Hektor are from a shelter that does put them down if not adopted after a period of time. i dint kno that initially and when i found out, i just cried!! i went there with the intention of gettin one pup, but when i saw these two brothers play together i couldnt take one without the i wish i had taken the whole litter!! blessings and much happiness is yours, i can see it in Baja's eyes!!
Jun 29, 2007 Lobiscuits
ADORABLE! You have been blessed. Mutts are the best. They are a wondrous mix of temperaments that keeps you guessing a provide a source of speculative conversation forever. This one is especially cute, like a stuffed toy you just want to hug.
Jun 29, 2007 mountainfamily
Definately some Border Collie in that adorable little mutt!
That's great that you were able to rescue him!
Wishing you a long life of happiness with your new owners, little guy!
Jun 29, 2007 momma
Those pictures tell the story of how he adapted to his new home - in the first ones he looks rather sad, but as the pictures continue it becomes very apparent that he realizes he is deeply loved and he is showing it with grins and a long tongue. He is a lucky little guy, and will be a loving addition to your home. He is no mutt - he is a loveable and loving friend.
Jun 29, 2007 lunas_mom
LOVE LOVE LOVE him who could NOT want this dog some people have no soul omg kisses 11 duh and yes mutts rule!!!!!!
Jun 29, 2007 kukie
wow he is super cute and looks very wise...I am sure he will give you lots of love! He looks just like my wee dog when I was young
Jun 29, 2007 natermom
What a beautiful little boy! We have a border collie/lab (Teddy)and have had a bassett/ terrier (Stretch) and what a combo you have in Baha. Mega Belly Rubs to you. 11,000 biscuits too.
Mac (the terrible terrier) and Teddy's Mom.
Jun 29, 2007 busyness
Oh my goodness...Baja is all kinds of cute!!

When I first saw his face, I thought "Border Collie". We've had a couple and they are wonderful dogs! Combined with a Basset Hound...priceless!

Much happiness to your family and Baja.
Jun 29, 2007 colio27
I agree!! He's definently Border Collie! Mine is sitting right next to me! 11 biscuits from me!
Jun 29, 2007 puppygurl
he is so cute
Jun 29, 2007 LisaLisa
Baja has the sweetest eyes! I just want to kiss that little nose of his. What a beautiful baby!!! Lots of biscuits!!!
Jun 29, 2007 elizzievb
HOORAY FOR MUTTS!! Love ALL dogs but honestly, I am sad to see so many purebred dogs on the Daily Puppy. THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO LOVES A MUTT AND ADOPTS ONE FROM A SHELTER! Baja is priceless - any dog with a little Basset and those legs gets extra points from me. What a sweetheart! XXOO
Jun 29, 2007 Butch99
One of the cutest I've ever seen. I'm of the opinion he has a little Cardigan Welsh Corgi in him. 11 biscuits.
Jun 29, 2007 CardiLover
I's been a long time since I posted, but I just couldn't help myself! 11 biscuits from me :) Also, you might watch, as he grows, for signs of Welsh Corgi. My cardigans both have almost exactly the same markings, and when they are sticking their heads out the window of the car and their legs can't be seen, they get mistaken for Border Collies all the time. Cardigan Welsh Corgis have tails like baja, front legs and feet like baja, and mine have little black "freckles" like baja, too. And my 5 month old Serendipity sticks her tongue out like that all the time, too!

In any case, I'm glad to see that you know what lucky fur parents you are!
Jun 29, 2007 flashsma
We have a Black and white Mutt also...EVERYONE sees something different in her. We have been told she is part everything from pit bull to Jack Russel. To us she is just Daisy..we love her...we don't need to know her orgin.
Baja is precious! A real charmer. Love him to pieces!
Jun 29, 2007 michellesmith1972
Your pup is not a mutt. I find that shelter dogs are more loyal than your full bred dog. We found our mix breed and she is one of the best dogs that I have every own and believe me I have had one to many dogs that weren't as special as Harley is. So enjoy this mix breed with all of your heart and soul and I promise you that Baja won't let you down. She will be a true companion and a best friend for life.
Jun 29, 2007 dlb54739
I love the markings! The "something that gives him a mid-length black-and-white coat" could be border collie... To cute... and will be a wonderful watchdog as he gets older. We had a border collie mix with a face just like that... They make wonderful pets and great companions... May he have a long and healthy life.
Jun 29, 2007 Zoie's Daddy
How could you not love him, that little face would have melted my heart, I would have taken him home as well. Million biscuits to you :)
Jun 29, 2007 Border Collie Mom
Oh, I must agree with the Border Hound classification. That darling baby has those wonderful BC eyes and the obvious markings. How wonderful!
Jun 29, 2007 shelleynasser
That FACE! Too adorable! Bless you for adopting such a fantastic dog and you certainly adopted a winner. This eyes are so expressive and seems to say "love me"! I have read all the comments and they all seem to say "We DO"! Bisquits all around!
Jun 29, 2007 boxermom4
You are so lucky to have him. He has a great deal of border collie in him, and probably will have alot less health issues than a purebred. Enjoy each other!! It was meant to be. We rescued a Collie Mix 2 year ago and have never been sorry. She is the best dog we own. ( Rest are pure breds)
Jun 29, 2007 LeempisMom
Your puppy is the exact image of our Leempi when we brought her home from the pound. She is a Border Collie mix with Lab. Our dog got to be 70 lbs but she has very long (lab) legs! She's the most incredibly smart dog we've ever had! She also, like Baja, was amazingly well behaved since she was little. It would kill her to displease us. She was very easily trained but she has an incredible nose and gets so focused (that's the border collie) that sometimes I have to clap my hands to get her attention! Have fun!

Wow, I haven't seen this many posts for a long time! What a great dog - you have such a treasure on your hands, and he does look extremely well behaved and he looks so lovable and grateful to you for rescuing him - Thank you so much for taking the time to post - I sure didn't think I could have a better Friday morning than is already happening, but these pictures just brightened my day even further - 10 bisquits!

What a good looking Mutt! I love that you rescued him! looks like he may have some border collie in the coloring!

after all the breed puppies i've ogled and pined after, Baja's perfect muttiness has inspired me to post. with those eyes, and those cute stubby legs, you have indeed aquired the loveliest "perma-puppy" yet! what a cute little guy with a big-dog look!
Jun 29, 2007 Sandra
He is beautiful and I love the color markings on his face. Like he has on a mask. You really lucked out and got a gem. He's going to bring you many years of happiness. Give him a hug for me.

Goodness gracious me, it's a Basset in a Tux! Max biscuits from a Bassett lover.
Jun 29, 2007 nicoleh@verizon
I heart baja!
Jun 29, 2007 nnicklaw
Oh my - Baja is adorable! There aren't enough biscuits in the world for the little guy!

...forced to register, so I could comment on the Border Hound. There is a look that Border Collies give...the eyes know all...and Baja gives it in nearly every picture. The "ticks" on the nose...Border. The tail...Border. The markings...Border. Those legs? Gotta be Bassett. I tossed around the Corgi idea too, but I've never seen a Corgi who's legs bow in that way. Either way...darn adorable. Enjoy, and read up on the Border Collie! They can be a handful.
Jun 29, 2007 ckporter73
My first thought was - having not met him, "I don't know if he is one of the best dogs in the world but, he is definitely ond of the CUTEST" What a little darling. I would just have to be giving him ear rubs and puppy kisses all the time.
Jun 29, 2007 gina
what a handsome dude! soooo cute!
Jun 29, 2007 EllenH
Baja is really cute. We had a dog named Buddy, he looked a lot like Baja. I found him wondering the streets and we took him to the shelter to see if anyone claimed him. After 7 days no one did and we went and got him. He was a border collied mix (we think). He lived about 10 years and then became ill.

Thanks for sharing, Ellen
Jun 29, 2007 SelanneGirl08
My guess is Border Collie + Corgi or Bassett, the paws definitely or one or the other I think! something with "dwarfism" of the legs, that makes for those awesome fat short little paws. :)
Jun 29, 2007 jac
So adorable - reminds me so much of my border collie mix I had.
except for the short legs. same beautiful face. same colouring and same patches. he is so lucky to have found a good home, give him a huge hug and pat his belly for me.
Jun 29, 2007 edb1917
Cute, cute, cute!

Let's hear it for the MUTTS! My Spike is a mutt, and he's adorable. Baja is just too cute for words! I love the name! And what a sweet little face he has!!!!
Jun 29, 2007 nestudhalter

I'm a mutt, too! Baja is more attractive than me, though, or any bulldog, lol! Enjoy each other!
Jun 29, 2007 cs3andme
I, too, had to register just to comment on how adorable Baja is! The second pic had me laughing out loud. He is tooooo sweet! Enjoy your new buddy. I wish you both many years of love and belly rubs :)
Jun 29, 2007 muneyes
Definately looks like he's part border collie--looks just like ours (minus the cute, stubby legs).
Jun 29, 2007 borgie
He is a cutie, I got an 8 month old Corgie/Border Collie Girl. They would look so cute together. My baby has the same short legs,and alot of the same markings. She is the best little girl. If Baja is anything like mine,you will be amazed at how smart he is. And I thought I was the only one with the best little dog in the world.
She is the most lovable baby,not to mention totally spoiled. Enjoy and teach him as much as you can.
Jun 29, 2007 dogcopper
What a cutie-pie! I truly belive that puppies rescued from a kill shelter instinctively know that they are safe and secure. I am sure he will provide years and years of "puppy love"! Hugs and snuggles!
Jun 29, 2007 Odie4L
What a handsome puppp! Mutts are the best dogs. Hes cool
Jun 29, 2007 liz
Goofy looking and handsome all at once. Perfect. Love the spiky hair on his ears. Very stylish.
Jun 29, 2007 melwri0881
I do belived that he is part border collie. he is just adorable. i want to kiss and hug him.
Jun 29, 2007 allpupsRperfect
Gosh, I haven't seen this many postings in a long time! :)

Was it bad luck you missed out on that Bulldog? Nope! It was divine intervention: Baja was heaven-sent. You are so very lucky to have each other.

Blessings to Baja and his new family ~..~
Jun 29, 2007 jo
Baja redefines cuteness. What an adorable puppy! I'm guessing he has some English springer spaniel in the mix somewhere. No matter what, he's just an unbelievably cute dog, with incredibly soulful eyes. And thanks for getting a rescue puppy. They are wonderful dogs, even having come from some pretty rough places. I wish you many years of happiness together!
Jun 29, 2007 mo
WOW! Baja is the cutest puppy I've seen on here in a long time! I love his serious little face, his scruffiness, and his funny expressions! It was definitely divine intervention that brought you such a bundle of love and cuteness. Enjoy!
Jun 29, 2007 furbabies
He looks like he has some corgi in him. What a precious pup.
Jun 29, 2007 irishdancer12319
Awwwww Baja is so adorable!
Jun 29, 2007 Annie03
Thank you you and this little are going to have a great
life together. Baja looks adorable.
Jun 29, 2007 janie
his head is awesomely big for his stubby legs. i've only ever known a dachsund puppy (my childhood/current HERCULES!) and stubby legs have always meant small(er) head than Baja has.

I understand the rather humane decision to keep the name Baja to ease the transition, but given that he's originally from Tennessee, you could've honored the southern heritage, given him a placename name like Pigeon Forge, Dollywood, Memphis...granted i'm a sucker for cute/funny/original pet names.

also, so cute and i'm so jealous you get a dog with all the best of different breeds. city living not compatible with dogs at all.
Jun 29, 2007 abby's mom
This is one of the cutest pups that I have ever seen. God bless you for rescuing him. I have a dog that is a cocker and springer mix and a rescue too. She is the love of my life as I am sure yours is too!! I love the last picture! A million doggy bones to the both of you!!
Jun 29, 2007 mash18020
OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HE IS SOOOOOOOOO ADORABLE!!! OH he is definate part border collie........he looks just like my border BoBo who is all border. Good for you for rescuing him. All 4 of ours are rescues/strays and they are all awesome. It makes me sick to see so many strays and unwanted animals out there. Best wishes to you and Baja and here's lotsa bones for him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jun 30, 2007 marilynl
Most definately Springer Spaniel in that baby! I would recognize those markings a mile away. Just wait until all those freckles pop out! I can see on his shnozz already! What a cutie!
Jun 30, 2007 calidee cute!!!! What an adorable face!!
Jun 30, 2007 7borders
Baja is off the cuteness scale!!
As the owner of 7, yes 7, border collies I know that look. Baja is definitely a large part BC. All the more reason to love that cute face. Thank you for adopting a rescue. One of ours, a purebred BC, came from a shelter and would have been euthanized had we not taken her. Bless you for saving another one. May you have many years of happiness with him and I am sure the BC in him will keep you on your toes!!
Jun 30, 2007 cobillie
The absolute cutest puppy ever!!!!! How lucky he is and how fortunate you are. I think adopted dogs know you rescued them and love you all the more. Please take very good care of the little guy. I've got two "rescued" dogs and they are the best! He'll bring you GREAT joy. Give him big slurpy kisses from Colorado! Simply adorable!
Jun 30, 2007 pupcake
Adorable ! <3
Jun 30, 2007 Bballkt4ever
SO CUTE!!! This is one reason i love pound puppies, cause you never have the intension of falling in love with the little mutts, but you always do!!! 11 +++++
Jun 30, 2007 chickpea26
Those soulful eyes in the first picture brought tears to my eyes. What a beautiful puppy!
Jun 30, 2007 feltlabbit

Jun 30, 2007 normag
God Bless you and everyone who has saved a dogs life from the street or shelter. Baja is beautiful! His marking and expressions are priceless. I am always picking up stray dos and try my best to find them good homes. when i read stories like this i feel its worth it. I currently have two Puerto Rican mutts that i am trying to find homes for them. anyone interested please email me through my member name and ill send you their pics. its a great cause.
Jun 30, 2007 bailey's mom
he's a very lucky little fella, enjoy your life in your new home, loads of biscuits to you and your buddies.
Jun 30, 2007 laurenrox7
Awww, look at those short little legs, how cute! I can't imagine myself ever adopting a pure-breed dog, unless it was at a pound or something. I love mutts, they are so adorable.
Jun 30, 2007 txmadre
Those soulful eyes would melt me! Have you forgotten the word "No"? I would.
Jun 30, 2007 soccer-chica
He is by far the cutest mutt puppy I have ever seen!!!!! Brownie points to you for rescuing him!!! 11 biscuits!!!!!!!

Beautiful pup!
Jun 30, 2007 susannajon
[color=pink]Look at his sweet little tongue! I love him. Everything happens for a reason and you were obviously meant to have this darling little boy in your life.[/color]
Jun 30, 2007 Janni
Baja is a-d-o-r-a-b-l-e!
And I just have to agree with everybody, definitely Border Collie mix! In addition to his black-and-white soft coat with white legs and some white in his tail, his eyes (and expressions) are distinctively bordercollie-like. Luckily not even his lower lids seem to be droopy at all (like bassett's lids often are)!
Jul 1, 2007 willyboyishere
So, after a procession of pups who ,cute and adorable as they might be, still seem to be more or less of the same
"type", here comes this dog Baja, who presents himself in a very different way: yeah, he's cute, but he is unusually serious-looking, sad, and worldly -wise. In some pictures he recalls Albert Einstein, but in puppy form . Yes, that's right , I actually said that and made that comparison. I am very impressed with the unique look and apparent personality of this pup.
Jul 1, 2007 meshugena
Can I just have this little baby? SO CUTE
Jul 1, 2007 Chris Myers
You will have lots of fun eith this puppy. He should get way more than eleven biscuuts. I would love to have a puppy just like him
Jul 1, 2007 3dogmom
You are so lucky to have found each other. I have a 7 year old golden retriever, a 2 year old bichon and a 10 year old"mutt' that I found. The mutt, Scout, has been the best dog ever! I'm sure Baja will be too. I think mutts must be born with more heart that other dogs! 11 biscuits.
Jul 1, 2007 doxielover
Just goes to show how handsome and unique a "mutt" can be. And thank you for adopting from Petsmart. My mother and friend also adopted wonderful dogs from there. It's a fine service Petsmart provides. Hope you and Baja have many wonderful years together!
Jul 1, 2007 vllybllstar
this baby is too cute
he's saying, "what did i do?"
thanks for saving him! he is worthy of saving
mutts are the best...

I couldn't stop laughing at those tiny, cute legs.
He really loves the camera! What a very beautiful puppy, too.
I'm melting for those eyes!
Sweetie pie! Enjoy the irresistible pup.
Jul 3, 2007 Taiyin
He's killing me! No one with a heart can look at this baby boy and not melt. Irresistable!
Jul 3, 2007 guido's mama
Baja is one lucky pup pup. What a sweet sweet little dog. So handsome. Here's to a long long life with the best new family!! P.S. I think the family might be the lucky ones. Baja looks like he's going to be a loving new addition!
Jul 3, 2007 Suki's Mom
He's perfect!
Jul 3, 2007 johncie
What a perfect picture to come home from vacation to! Baja looks like the best of several breeds rolled into one cuddly little guy! My friend just became grandma to 6 "Bassador" babies--I'd recognize those sturdy legs and huge paws anywhere. Have great fun with your prize!
Jul 4, 2007 9-DogLover
How Wonderful you are to Adopt from Pet'sMart & the SPCA's collection of wonderful pets...!!!! Why pay TONS of money to a Breeder,(??!) when so many Doggies are out there, waiting for their "Fur-Ever" Home !!! Baja is ADORABLE....a real Sweetie-Pie !!
All 9 of our dog-letts have been rescued, by finding US, or we have found them...all so Wonderful!! Best of luck with Baha, it looks like he will raise you just fine!!! :>)

Please give him lots of kisses for me. Someone in another comment said it...A million biscuits!!!!!!!!!!!!1
Jul 6, 2007 fantasysweet
This might be one of THE CUTEST puppies I have ever seen. Absolutely adorable!!!
Jul 6, 2007 cybersleuth58
A rescue pup? They are the best of all. It seems that there are a lot of little ones being brought up from down South from high kill shelters. Each one saved is a miracle. You deserve a huge THANK YOU and your new baby deserves all the love you can (and will) give him. Good luck! He is such a gift of happiness.
Jul 7, 2007 llt214 are simply gorgeous!!!! Who cares if you are a mutt...there's nothing wrong with that!! Mutts are THE BEST!!!! I wish you and your new family many years of happiness. Big smooches to you Baja!!!!

This baby looks like he may have some Border Collie too. They are the best!

We absolutely adore your mutt Baja. You sound like wonderful parents who will take fantastic care of this beautiful sweetheart.
Sep 11, 2007 kaile
He totally has some Border Collie in him. My little girl has almost identical markings on her face and chest. So sweet.

SO CUTE! i think it looks more like a corgi/border collie mix than a hound..
Jan 23, 2008 guanaca69
Ohhh Baja you are precious. My sweet Roscoe looked just like you.

Feb 7, 2008 Doggymommy
First of all my good man, you Baja are completely adorable.

second of all, whether you are a "mutt" or "pure breed" a cute puppy is a cute puppy! I have one of each and I love them both just the same.

thirdly, how did you come to my house and steal my dogs stuffed duck?????? I have been looking for it for a month!
Feb 12, 2008 flowerpower
Hi I just wanted to say that I got a puppy last month. Her father is beagle basset mix, he looks totally like a basset. -and the mother is a border collie mixed with unknown. and I got to pick from 5. and there were long hair and short hair. I picked the short hair. The longer hair looks exactly like your puppy. They are so adorable. So you have a basset that is mixed with a border collie!
Feb 27, 2008 joycie237
baja is so adorable! i made this picture my background... those eyes they're so sweet and sad. it just makes you want to hug him really tight!
Mar 16, 2008 Glorybe
I hope all is well with you and your little Baja. These pictures are just adorable and precious. I can't even imagine putting a needle into this darling's shoulder and injecting a solution that would stop his heart. But it happens all too often I'm afraid. I guess it's time to pass laws in every state that requires sterilization unless you're a REPUTABLE/CARING breeder. We humans sure do make a mess out of things. But it's time to stop when there are inocent lives that pay the price for our greed, selfishness, and ignorance.

I am so sorry to have vented my feelings here, but in reading your story, I couldn't help thinking about "kill shelters" and the circumstances which places these precious, inocent souls in them. :(

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.......for adopting your Baja. May you all experience many, many love-filled, memorable years ahead.
Mar 19, 2008 msemccready
Baja's absolutely adorable. There's quite probably some Border Collie in hir. I'm a dedicated Border Collie fan and my first response to Baja's "Puppy of the Day" photo was "Awhhh, what a cute Border Collie puppy. He looks a lot like my first BC cross's puppy pictures. Congratulations on adopting an awesome "pound puppy"!
Mar 22, 2008 becky2808
