Last year, a village street dog in Troncones adopted me.

One morning it used its little 9” legs to follow me on my six kilometre morning walk. I thought it learned from its mistake, but the next morning it followed me on my six kilometre morning run. (I alternate walk days and run days.) He did that every day for weeks.

He hung around the house, but I wouldn’t let him in. I kept telling people he was “not my dog”. I was gone for a month and when I got back, people told me that he came to the house every day when I was gone. For days he kept coming to the door, crying. So I acknowledged that he had adopted me and I brought him to Canada with me.

Now we will be returning to Troncones in October, arriving on AeroMexico through Mexico City. I have been trying to learn enough that I don’t screw this up. I would be heartbroken if he were quarantined in Mexico City.

This site says,

You must present the Mexican border authorities with an original and a certified copy of a veterinary health certificate that has been issued within 15 days prior to export.

Have your veterinarian issue a health certificate. It must be printed on the veterinary clinic's letterhead, and contain the license number of the certifying veterinarian as proof of that veterinarian's right to exercise his/her profession. The certificate must be printed; hand written documents will be rejected. No official endorsement (signature by a CFIA (Canadian Food Inspection Agency) veterinarian) is required if this option is chosen.

Relaciones Exteriores

But this sites says,

Health Certificates: According to SENASICA, If you are not traveling from the USA or Canada, you will need to show a health certificate from a veterinary surgeon.

If you are NOT traveling from the USA or Canada, before you travel, your veterinary surgeon needs to provide you with a health certificate for each pet, issued by an official authority or by a licensed veterinarian in your home country, that should include proof of vaccines against rabies and distemper, administered at least 15 days before the arrival of your pet in Mexico. If you live in the US or Canada you do not need to present this certificate.

Bringing Pets to Mexico

And this one says,

A health certificate for dogs and cats from Canada is no longer needed to enter Mexico. Note: If transiting another country, such as the United States, it is the responsibility of the importer/owner to confirm import requirements for the other countries.

Export of dogs and cats to Mexico

And this site says,

Origen México, EUA o Canadá y procedencia EUA o Canadá

Si visitas México, a tu llegada tu mascota será sujeta a una inspección física para constatar que no existan riesgos sanitarios. No es necesario presentar Certificado de Buena Salud y cartilla de vacunación*.

Requisitos y procedimientos para viajar a México con tu mascota

And this site says,

Establecer que el o los animales han sido sometidos a un tratamiento preventivo contra parásitos internos y externos, dentro de los seis meses previos, y se encuentran libres de ectoparásitos. (No se requiere para mascotas cuyo país de origen y procedencia sea Estados Unidos de América o Canadá).
