This is O’Donnell, a sweet and even-tempered Schnauzer/Miniature Pinscher mix from Mexico! Despite being only about 10 months young, O’Donnell already has a rough past under her belt. She was relinquished to us by terrible owners. She had babies when she was far too young to have them, and when our rescue partner learned of this and the fact that the owners did not want to care for the puppies, she attempted to bring the whole family to safety. Unfortunately our rescuer got there too late, and these people had already disposed of O’Donnell’s puppies because they did not want to raise them. She pleaded with them to get O’Donnell to safety, and that’s how she eventually made her way to us. You would never know of the hard hand she was dealt based on O’Donnell’s friendly, affectionate, trusting, easygoing, and pleasant temperament. She gets along well with all other dogs, and she is a great compact size of just 12 pounds. If you’d like to provide O’Donnell with the loving forever home she deserves, don’t wait to submit an application for her today!

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.
