Pet Travel Question: How to Import a Dog to the United States

From: Tiare
From: Mexico City, Mexico
To: Chicago, Illinois, US

What do I need for my dog to be able to travel from Mexico to the U.S? I need to send my dog back to my family in Chicago, but I'm not sure what documents I need for her to be able to travel. She has been in Mexico for the past year and a half, but was originally from the U.S.
