I am already spayed and up to date with shots.

Emily's Story...

"Love me, love me, love me!" Those are the words that seem to constantly run through Emily's mind. This girl is crazy about human affection and will make a beeline for any hand available for petting. She gets so happy when people give her attention; her long tail cant stop wagging and her body has this sideways wiggle movement at the end of this crazy, happy dance she winds up smacking herself in the nose with her tail. That seems to only make her wiggle and smile more. Emily is about 42 pounds and 2 years old. She still has a lot of puppy energy, and will need daily exercise or play time. She loves toys and enjoys interacting with other dogs. Her best friend and roommate at TBL is another awesome pup named Hoisin (, and they keep each other great company. This smart lady already has her basic commands down pat and is both house and crate trained. Emily is a sweet, fun-loving and friendly girl. Did we mention she passed a cat test with flying colors? This means she would also be a great addition to families with felines. She is still peering out of her barking space, waiting for that perfect adopter to come along and give her a great home. Her playful antics and endearing personality are sure to brighten anyone's day!

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.
