Say hello to our very sweet girl, Dirado! Dirado arrived at The Barking Lot from San Bernardino in August, 2016. While Dirado was initially a bit shy upon her arrival, that shyness quickly dissipated as Dirado became more and more comfortable with our volunteer crew. We now know her as one of the most loving, most affectionate dogs at TBL, as Dirado happily greets all of our volunteers now and loves to snuggle in laps! At one-year-old, this Min Pin/Manchester Terrier mix is fully-grown at about 14 pounds. True to her breed heritage, Dirado is affectionate, inquisitive, and makes for a great companion dog. She has a beautiful black and tan coat that is short and easy to care for. Dirado gets along great with other dogs and currently shares a large kennel with three other similarly-sized pups. Dirado like to play with her buds and is never bossy or dominant, preferring to go with the flow when it comes to any puppy shenanigans. Dirado is also great with people, and has a calm, relaxed, gentle nature with our volunteer crew. She walks well on a leash, loves treats, and aims to please. Dirado’s small sizes makes her the perfect pup for any living situation, and she would be a great dog to take everywhere, as she’s a very “portable” pup! If you’re looking for a best friend and a loyal companion, Dirado is your gal! Submit an app 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.
