Petey Girl is such a sweetheart and a slam dunk pup! Petey Girl was originally adopted from the San Diego Humane Society last year. Petey Girl's adoptive home had a young kid that would hit her, so a neighbor stepped in and took her instead. However, the neighbor eventually had to give Petey Girl up because their landlord did not allow bully breeds in their apartment. Petey Girl is currently in foster with one of our volunteers, and she is every bit as wonderful in a home environment as she was at TBL! She is completely housebroken, crate trained, doesn’t bark or whine, knows sit and stay commands, and is just the perfect pooch all around. Petey Girl is also quite the lover. She is very sweet, loving, engaging, and attentive with all people. She loves to nuzzle and lean into you while you’re petting her. Petey Girl is great with other dogs, and fits in well with her 2 small Miniature Poodle foster siblings. She has even passed a cat temperament test with flying colors! Petey Girl is about 5 and a half years of age, and tips the scales at 61 pounds per her last weigh-in. She is built strong and solid just like a purebred American Staffordshire Terrier, though perhaps just a little rounder than average (we’re working on it!). She has a short black and white coat that will be easy to maintain as far as grooming is concerned. Come meet Petey Girl for yourself and you’ll see why we adore her!

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.
