Say hello to Murphy, an adorable 1-year-old Lhasa Poo! One of our partners at The Honest Kitchen found him running down the street at the end of March 2016, a matted, filthy, disgusting mess. Murphy was very afraid and did not like it when pressure was applied to his neck, but he was awesome with his rescuer’s 4-year-old son. We’ve given Murphy a handful of much-needed baths since his arrival, and though he is sensitive about parts of his face, paws, and rear, he tolerated and accepted each bath with grace. Murphy gets along well with all other dogs in his play group, and his fun, playful, feisty, and vocal antics makes him a hoot to have around. He is an engaging pooch who happily wags his tail at the sight of people. Murphy is a conveniently compact size of 15 pounds, and he will require regular grooming to keep his long cream-colored coat in tip top condition. He would love to find a forever family to call his own!

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.
