If your ideal pooch is one who is gorgeous, mature, friendly, loving, laid-back, well-balanced, and slower-paced, then Saguaro may just be your girl! Say hello to Saguaro, a beautiful 7-year-old Boxer mix with a heart of gold. We originally rescued Saguaro from a shelter in California City, and she is currently enjoying the comfortable life of a foster dog. Right off the bat, she showed us that she is a very affectionate, social, tail-wagging pup who loves all people. Just ask her foster dad, and he’ll tell you that she is one amazing lady. Saguaro is completely housebroken, and settled quickly into a daily routine of going out 3 times a day. She enjoys going on long walks or short jogs around the neighborhood, and she knows how to sit and stay on command. Saguaro was in a play group with other dogs around her size at TBL, and she is extremely kind and gentle with all humans. In fact, she recently accompanied her foster dad on a trip to visit family in Northern California, and Saguaro was sweet and relaxed around their newborn baby. She has a short and low-maintenance tricolored coat that is very easy to care for, and she’s a great medium size of 42 pounds. In general, Saguaro enjoys laying around, being a couch potato with you, and and taking naps (and who doesn’t love those?). You will likely fall instantly in love when you look into her sweet face in person. If she sounds like your perfect pooch, then don’t pass up your chance to bring her home!

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.
