Who is cute, sweet, little, and a perfect companion pup? Struffoli, that’s who! Struffoli has a sad beginning to her story. Her former owners moved out of their home and left Struffoli and her buddy Friti in the home to fend for themselves. Luckily, TBL was notified and agreed to take both pups in and help them find their forever homes. Even though Struffoli didn’t receive the best treatment from people previously, you would never be able to tell by her adorable, sweet, affectionate personality. This gregarious girl is incredibly sweet and loves to cuddle! At two-years-old, she is past all that puppy nonsense but still has some of that typical puppy “zest” for life. A teeny thing, Struffoli weighs in at a mere 10 pounds, which makes sense given her presumed Chihuahua/Beagle heritage. Struffoli has a very pretty, cream/tan colored coat that is short and easy to care for. She gets along great with other dogs, and currently shares her kennel with three other similarly-sized pals. Struffoli would love a family who is prepared to make their pup an integral part of the household, taking her on outings to local coffee shops and for brunch dates on Sundays. Struffoli is an awesome little girl who is just waiting for a family to restore her faith in the concept of a “forever home.” Want to be the person to be the real family Struffoli’s been waiting for?

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.
