With an underbite that wins her fans everywhere she goes, say hello to Devaney! Devaney arrived at The Barking Lot in January, 2016 with a large group of dogs from Barstow Humane Society. TBL volunteers all immediately fell in love with her little underbite and her spunky personality. From the day she arrived, Devaney made it very clear that she loves people, as she follows volunteers all over the play yard, dancing on her hind legs asking for a little attention (which she always gets because who can say no to that face)! We soon found out that she was pregnant with a belly full of puppies, and she gave birth to the Three Musketeer Puppies (currently available for adoption) in March 2016. At 3-years-old, Devaney is fully-grown at the compact size of 14 or so pounds. Devaney gets along well with other dogs, currently sharing her kennel with three other similarly sized pups. She loves to bounce around the play yard, chasing her friends around and jumping on top of them during little wrestling matches. It's pretty clear that humans are Devaney's number one priority though, as she stops all of the puppy shenanigans and immediately rushes over to say hi as soon as any volunteer enters the play yard. This Dachshund/Japanese Chin mix is quite the looker, with a black and white coat and a sweet fluffy tail. Her coat is fluffy and will require some semi-regular grooming to keep it tangle free and pretty. Devaney's small size makes her the perfect addition to any living situation. She's small, leash trained, people and dog friendly, treat motivated, and has one of the cutest underbites we have ever seen - what more could you ask for in a pup?

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.
