If you’re looking for the perfect pooch, look no further than Rianne! Rianne arrived at The Barking Lot in September, 2015 from San Bernardino County. We were immediately struck both by Rianne’s beauty and her gentle nature. While Rianne is a big girl – fully-grown at about 70-80 pounds – she is extremely gentle, calm, and good-natured. She walks perfectly on a leash – never pulls and always stays right by your side. At four-years-old, Rianne is well-past any puppy shenanigans and has the wisdom and maturity (and mastering of basic commands) that comes with age. Given her black-and-tan coloring, overall build, and gorgeous face, we are pretty sure this lady is all German Shepherd. Rianne gets along well with other dogs, and currently shares her kennel with bestie, Iman. Iman and Rianne are quite funny together, as Iman is the goofball of the group and Rianne is the laidback, stoic partner. Rianne would love an active home that would keep her active on hikes and strolls around town, and understands a Shepherd’s need for structure and stimulation. While she would love a yard, she would do OK in a smaller living environment, as long as her daily exercise needs were being met. Rianne walks well on a leash, does well in a crate, knows some basic commands, and is an overall perfect pup, in our humble opinions! Did we mention she's housebroken? If an amazing, gentle, loyal German Shepherd is what you’re looking for, you must submit an application for Rianne 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.
