Facts about Walt

Volunteers who have been volunteering at TBL since 2012 had a serious case of deja vu when Walt showed back up at our door late October 2016. His former adopter developed dementia and could no longer care for him, so poor Walt was returned to us after 4 years in a home through no fault of his own. Lucky for him, he is still dapper as ever and we are determined to find him a forever home this time around! This little man has charm to spare. Walt is the walking definition of a perfect companion dog; he is loving, affectionate, patient, and smart. Walt loves to sit in a human's lap and take in the world, looking up every now and again for a pat or a kiss. Many small breeds been bred over centuries to be a lap dog, and Walt takes this genetic mandate very seriously. Another great feature Walt possesses is his handsome coat. Walt has hair rather than fur, which means that he sheds only minimally and does not aggravate people allergies like a typical pet might. His coat takes some consistent grooming, but Walt doesn't mind. He is also very social with other dogs, and currently spends much of his time with a handful of other dogs his size. Walt is about 15 pounds, and at 5 years old, he is ready to settle down!

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.
