Handsome and full of life – the perfect description for low-riding, Durado! Durado arrived at The Barking Lot in August, 2016 from Devore Shelter. There are zero shy bones in Durado’s squatty little body, as he walked right into TBL like he owned the place, giving everyone he met a tail wag and a friendly “hug.” This adorable Staffie/Basset Hound mix is one-and-a-half-years old and fully grown at about 30-35 pounds. Durant is quite the stunner too, with his adorable stubby legs and gorgeous, easy-to-care-for, brindle coat. Durant is incredibly loving and affectionate, and will greet everyone he meets with a smile and a wag, whether he knows them or not. Durant is also incredibly playful, so his forever family better be ready for a pup who loves all sorts of doggie games. Durant gets along great with other dogs, sharing his kennel with one “roomie” and belonging to a playgroup of similary-sized pups. Like we said before, Durant loves his buddies because they are perpetual playmates for his happy-go-lucky self. Durant walks well on a leash and is extremely treat motivated, meaning that training him shouldn’t be too hard! His medium-size is ideal for most living situations, and we know he would make a great hiking companion or man about town for those who like to take their dogs with them everywhere that they go. If you’re in the market for a self-assured, confident, happy, low-riding dude, submit an app for Durant 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.
