Ruff Ruff! My name is Hobbs
|Breed:||Cairn Terrier/Pug Mix||Color:||Unknown||Age:||Young|
|Size:||Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less||Sex:||Male||ID#:||3662843|
I am already neutered and up to date with shots.
UPDATE 2: This guy has skills! He has been well trained by his foster family; check out his video!! **UPDATE** It seems Hobbs has turned into a total love bug. While he isn't a lap dog, he wants to be with his people and wakes us up every morning with kisses. although if he has to choose between his person and his ball he does think about it, but then chooses to be with you. (of course he would rather have both, as in you playing fetch with him) And those ears are SOOOO expressive (reminds me of Yoda sometimes). As you can see from his previous information below, Hobbs has come a long way in being more personable. His foster mom says Hobbs totally cracks her up with all his funny antics.** Self-sufficient, independent, confident & curious, our little man Hobbs can entertain himself for hours on end. Give him a ball and a space in which to play, he'll roll, toss, tear, scoot, bounce, chase & have a total ball (no pun intended)! Point in case, as I write this he's in the back yard running the ball up to the top of the hill, at which point he immediately drops it & allows it to roll down the hill & then chases it to the bottom where the fun starts all over again. LOL!! I kid you not, he is a true monologue of entertainment!! Hobbs is a great player & truly lives life to the fullest.
He's a smart little bugger of 2 yrs & 15 lbs & although he's friendly toward people, he's not the warmest blanket in the closet...and by that I mean, he's not a needy guy and although will allow you to pick him up & hold him, so if you're looking for a lap dog, keep on searching. On the other hand, if you're looking for an all about business (and he's about the business of having fun!), then you've come to the right place. Hobbs will be fine as an only dog because he's typically playing solo with his toys & balls, but he is friendly toward dogs. He does have the 'typical' feisty terrier edge, so he needs a solid leader that will be able to 'put his/her foot down' when needed. Once the rules & boundaries are established, Hobbs respects them beautifully.
I would think Hobbs might not be a bad match for a working professional since he's an independent fella. I believe he could withstand hanging alone while mom/dad is at work. As long as he has his toys & some room to shove them around & do a bit of prancing, our little man Hobbs is happy! Come meet Hobbs today!

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.
