Want a little dog who is sweet, loving, and a perfect, portable companion? Then we have the pup for you! Meet Ondira, new to The Barking Lot as of September, 2016. Ondira came from Southeast Area Animal Control, along with a few small buddies. Upon first meeting Ondira, all of our volunteers swooned over her tiny size (only about 6-7 pounds) and her gentle, loving nature. Besides having an adorable face and goofy, fat Doxie paws, Ondira’s tail never stops wagging. As soon as she sees someone, new or familiar, her little tail starts wagging at a mile a minute, as she works her way from lap to arms to face for kisses! Given Ondira’s beautiful black-and-tan coloring, short legs, chubby paws, and floppy ears, we think she’s a nice mix between a Dachshund and a Min Pin. At four-years-old, she’s also fully-grown at about 7 pounds, making her the perfect pup for someone who is “on the go” and wants to make sure their pup accompanies them everywhere! Ondira gets along great with other dogs, and shares her kennel with three other similarly-sized pups. At night, you can often find Ondira snuggled in the very middle of her kennel mates, as she’s a great “pack” member. Ondira is great with people, too, and is overall, just a very friendly, happy-go-lucky pup. Ondira’s small size makes her perfect for any living situation. She would love a home where she can accompany her family members on outings around town, to brunch and coffee shops, and for strolls in the park. She also would make an amazing snuggle partner during late night Netflix marathon sessions! If you’re looking for a happy, friendly, adorable, tiny pup, look no further than Ondira!

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.
