Attention: come any closer and you will fall for Fallbrook! Consider yourself warned about this adorable, scruffy-yet-dapper little Shih-Poo. We rescued Fallbrook from Kern County in April where he was surrendered by his previous owner. Here at TBL, he spends all day in the company of other dogs young and old and big and small. While he gets along wonderfully with everyone during play time, nap time, and cuddle time, Fallbrook does prefer the perks of private dining. He has a curly white and black coat that should make life a little bit easier on allergy sufferers. Fallbrook is a compact size of about 15 pounds, making him ideal for many types of living situations. At around 4-years of age, Fallbrook is well past his rambunctious puppy years. Most days, you will find him lounging around on his doggie bed, preferring to dog and people-watch as opposed to getting in the thick of the action himself. If you are looking for an easy, calm, cool, and collected little cutie, then Fallbrook might just be your guy!

About The Barking Lot

About Our Rescue Group...

The seed for The Barking Lot was planted a few years back when I took in my first foster dog, Patti Cake, in hopes of making a bigger impact by helping my favorite furry friends. Before I knew it, I was put on some rescue email list and received an email stating, "This dog to be put down on Tuesday at 3pm". I was utterly horrified and jumped into action figuring out how I could save her. Well, I did and I'm glad to report Raspberry (my nephew named her!) is living happily in Encinitas to this day! After getting her adopted, I thought, "That wasn't so tough." And so it goes...over 500 dogs adopted into loving home and 2 1/2 years later...we are now creating The Barking Lot.

As well as being wonderful companions, dogs are amazing teachers and we've learned so much from them...first and foremost that they all deserve a chance at a better life and their behavior will balance beautifully if their needs are meet and good leadership is applied. These pups will be the most grateful creatures you've encountered. We rescue our furry friends from area shelters, humane societies and Mexico as they are at risk of being euthanized and/or abandoned.

We are a small organization with a handful of key volunteers and we are just getting started as a 501c3 non-profit, so we're looking for more volunteers to add to the fun and reward! We need both people and donations to help our furry friends, so we'd be grateful for either. Please contact

Thanks for choosing rescue,
Stacy, The Barking Lot crew and all the rescued recruits!

P.S. Patti Cake, my original foster dog, is among The Barking Lot residents as I couldn't possibly have given her up & I'm fortunate to call her mine! Yes, I'm proud to report I was a failed foster my first go around!!

Our Adoption Process...

Our goal to find the right match for each pooch based on lifestyle, energy level, exercise regime, environment and living situation. To ensure we find a great match for each pup, the process entails an adoption application, a play date with your furry friend, a home check of the potential adopter and an adoption contract.

The adoption fees include spay/neuter, up-to-date shots, rabies vaccination, microchip & microchip registration, de-worming and the benefit of getting a pooch who has been living in a stable and loving environment.
