Proving that some of the best pups come in small packages is little guy, Dwyer! Dwyer arrived at The Barking Lot in August, 2016 with a small group of dogs from San Bernardino. Initially a little shy upon arrival, Dwyer has warmed up to his surroundings and the volunteers at TBL and proven himself to be a dog who lives for cuddles. Dwyer would make an ideal lap dog/errand-running dog as he just wants to be where his most beloved people are! At three-years-old, Dwyer is fully-grown at 10 pounds and has a nice, calm energy that is sure to soothe anyone even on their worst days. Given his handsome mug, gorgeous coat, and beautiful coloring, we think Dwyer is a mix between a Yorkie and a Lhasa Apso. Given that presumed breed heritage, Dwyer might be a great a dog for homes with allergy-sufferers. Speaking of his low-shedding coat, Dwyer will require some regular grooming to keep his mane primped and fancy! Dwyer gets along well with other dogs, currently sharing his kennel with several other little pups. During play time, he’s happy to relax in the play yard, choosing a nice, warm spot to sun himself. Dwyer is also great with people, and while he might be a little shy when first meeting new people, he warms up quickly and is then happy to claim their lap space as his own. His small size makes him a perfect fit for pretty much any living situation, and he is quite the gentleman on the leash. What are you waiting for? Submit an app for this little super star 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.
