Facts about Smokey

  • Breed: Pointer/Labrador Retriever Mix
  • Color: White - With Red, Golden, Orange Or Chestnut

  • Sex: Male

You only have to look into Smokey's smoldering eyes to know he's a sweet soul! This 4-and-a-half-year-old 50 lb Pointer/Labrador mix is a perfect blend of his two breeds: intelligent, playful, patient and affectionate. The first things you’ll notice about Smokey are his striking topaz eyes that automatically beckon you to pet him. Then while he’s enjoying a good petting from you, you’ll also notice everything from his athletic build and beautiful liver-speckled coat, to those adorably cute freckles by his nose. Smokey spends most of his time at The Barking Lot with his best friend Bandit (get it? Smokey and the Bandit!), a 5 lb Chihuahua. The fact that he gets along so well with someone ten times smaller than him tells us that he’s a big softie with a kind-hearted disposition. Smokey is the perfect balance between playfulness and gentleness, making him an ideal companion for almost any home and any family type!

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.
