Ruff Ruff! My name is Tootsie
|Breed:||Dachshund||Color:||Brown/Chocolate - With White||Age:||Young|
|Size:||Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less||Sex:||Female||ID#:||4971600|
I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.
Yes, Tootsie has got an adorable face, but her personality is even more adorable! This three-year old gal was dealt a rough blow early in her life by either taking a hard fall or being hit as her back was broken. When we first got her about a year ago, she did not have use of her back legs and walked only with the aid of a wheelchair. However, with great care from her foster mom, Tootsie now has feeling in both her feet and can move her legs (check out her video to see how she gets around!) Though she still uses her wheelchair, Tootsie will wriggle right out of it and run around the room with the other dogs in her foster home. Her foster family will take her out to the pool during warm weather to help her with physical therapy, and feels confident that a forever family that is dedicated to her rehabilitation will help Tootsie walk without her wheelchair. This sweet girl loves to snuggle up at night, and during the day she has a favorite basket where she burrows under the blankets--how could you resist such cuteness! Despite her slight handicap, Tootsie loves walks and car rides and would love a family that will make her the recipient of much love and attention.

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.
