Say hello to Stan, one of TBL’s (many) favorite Chiweenies! Stan arrived at The Barking Lot in June, 2016 with a small group of pups from Orange County. Volunteers immediately fell in love with Stan’s adorably innocent face and his matching adorable personality. At just one-year-old, this little guy is at a great time in his life. He no longer has to endure the craziness of his puppy months, and he has the wisdom and maturity that come with being a pup of one year. Given his adorable face, floppy ears, and short legs, we think Stan is a Dachshund/Chihuahua mix. He’s fully-grown at just over 11 pounds, making him a great “portable” pup. Stan is very handsome, as well, with a tan and white coat that is short and will require minimal grooming. Stan gets along great with other dogs, and currently eats, sleeps, and plays with three similarly-sized pals. He also belongs to a large play group of small dogs, and is quite amiable in all of his relations with his buddies. Stan is great with people, and is happy to be carted around in someone’s arms, or hike alongside them, sniffing the world around them as he goes. Stan would be a great addition to a home looking for a pup they could take everywhere, like out to brunch or to the local coffee spot or to the neighborhood dog park (he would love all these places, we are sure)! His size makes him well-suited to any living situation, too! Looking for a low-riding, happy-go-lucky, loving pup to call your very own? Then submit an app for Stan 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.
