Meet Joey Doves! This handsome Staffy mix came to us from a shelter in Orange County. Joey Doves is known for stealing the hearts of everyone he meets by showing off his perfect leash skills, knowledge of basic commands, and love of snuggling (not to mention his dashing good looks!). This fun-loving yet well-mannered boy has accompanied volunteers on sleepovers and K9rs hikes all over San Diego county. Joey Doves proves himself to be a perfect gentleman and houseguest time and time again. He is quiet, respectful, completely housetrained, loves playing fetch, and he does not jump on the couch without invitation. He gets along well with other dogs and has even passed a cat test! Joey was a hit on a recent outing to Petsmart where he was quite popular amongst other shoppers, dogs, and staff alike. He’s the kind of guy who likes to follow you around the house like a friendly shadow, patiently waiting for treats and affection. Joey is 3 and a half years old as of summer 2017, and he is a great medium size of 55 pounds. His soft and short brown coat will require minimal grooming and upkeep. His ideal home is one that is balanced between some active outdoor adventuring, and ample couch-snuggling time. If Joey Doves sounds like the perfect guy for you, don’t wait to submit an application to meet him!

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 stacy@thebarkinglot.net

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.
