Bailey is a shining example of the resiliency of dogs. He is a sweet, friendly, affectionate, and happy-go-lucky boy who doesn’t let bad circumstances dictate how he lives his life. Bailey was found as a stray who wandered across the path of one of our rescue partners in Mexico. He had a very tight collar on made of chain and electrical pipe wrapped around his neck, with even more chain dragging out behind him. It was quickly discovered that he was also deaf and missing some teeth. Despite the hand he was dealt, Bailey is one of the sweetest and most loving dogs you’ll ever meet. He is fantastic with other dogs, cats, adults and kids alike. We’ve seen him meet and dote on young children, enjoying pets and hugs from them, and being very gentle all the while. Bailey is a true mutt, and we suspect he’s got some Boxer in him as his whole backside wiggles nonstop when greeting people. Sometimes he won’t realize when it’s time to rotate play groups (as he can’t hear when we call his friends in), and we’d come out to find him contentedly chewing on a toy. We’d catch his attention by waving at him, and he would bound up in greeting, tail wagging, and trot happily back inside with you. Bailey is very playful with his buddies, and loves being in the company of people. He is a smart boy who knows the hand commands for sit and lie down. By all volunteer accounts, Bailey is a joy to have around. Bailey is about 3 and a half years old as of January 2017, and he is a great medium size of 45 pounds. Give this wonderful boy a chance and you won’t regret it!

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.
