Ruff Ruff! My name is Shep
|Breed:||German Shepherd Dog/Labrador Retriever Mix||Color:||Black - With Tan, Yellow Or Fawn||Age:||Young|

I am already spayed/neutered, purebred, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.
Shep is proof of the enduring qualities of dogs: originally rescued by an organization that could not care for the dogs it had, Shep was confined to a dog run in the desert with only another dog for companionship. When we rescued him properly, Shep was hesitant and shy with people. However, within one day of being at The Barking Lot, Shep emerged from under the table to take treats out of the hand of a volunteer, and within two days, he was wagging his tail at the sight of people. Since then, Shep now greets us at the office window, gives doggie kisses, and willingly goes on walks with volunteers that are strangers to him. Though he is a little jumpy around quick movements, Shep shows that he naturally trusts people and wants to become everyone's friend. Shep responds very well to the example of other dogs and would probably do best in a home with another dog who is confident and can mentor him in the socialization he didn't receive as a young pup. Shep is a young dog and has many years ahead of him, and he has come so far already that it will just take being in a loving home to bring him fully out of his shell. If your heart has a soft spot like ours for those dogs that bloom under good care, then Shep is the perfect dog for you.

Rescue Group Info...
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 email@example.com
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!!
Please check our website for our upcoming adoption events, or fill out our application at www.thebarkinglot.net for an appointment.
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.
