The name Leroy is of French origin, and it means the king. Awesome boy Leroy is hoping to find his forever kingdom soon! We rescued this tripaw from San Bernardino County, and he is a very special boy indeed. Instead of a fourth leg, Leroy has a little nubbin for his front right limb. We think he’s had this little nubbin since birth, and believe us when we say it doesn’t slow him down any! What he may lack in a full limb, he more than makes up for in his dashing good looks and charm. Leroy is an amazingly sweet boy with a wonderful personality to boot. He is a friend to all people young and old, and other dogs big and small. In fact, Leroy was immediately promoted to the ranks of front office greeter upon his arrival at TBL owing to his friendly and outgoing personality. He spent his days in the hustle and bustle of the office, greeting people with a wag of his tail, hopping around after volunteers like a happy shadow, or resting his head on laps or feet whenever he catches anyone sitting. Leroy joined a few volunteers on an outing to a dog-friendly restaurant, and he was a good boy and stole the hearts of all restaurant staff. Most recently, Leroy is enjoying the comfortable foster life in Del Mar and has been an absolute rock star! His foster parents, along with the rest of us at TBL, have no idea how he hasn’t been snatched up yet. Leroy is very lovable, affectionate, cuddly, mellow, easygoing, and completely housebroken. He transitioned perfectly into a home environment, and has still yet to have a single accident in the house. Leroy gets along swimmingly with his foster brother who happens to be a TBL alum, and the two like to hobble around the house side by side, play tug-of-war with toys, and are beyond adorable when they snuggle together on the couch (see photo). This unique and dashing boy is fully matured at just under 4 years of age, and weighs around 45 pounds. One look into Leroy’s handsome face and stunning light grey eyes and he’ll win you over!

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 stacy@thebarkinglot.net

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.
