Ruff Ruff! My name is Starburst
|Breed:||Pug Mix||Color:||Tan/Yellow/Fawn - With Black||Age:||Young|
|Size:||Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less||Sex:||Female||ID#:||5158350|
I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.
UPDATE 3/27/2013: Starburst had a extended sleepover recently with one of our volunteers, and here's what she reported back: 'Starbust was really good - very loving and energetic. She is crate trained (slept fine in her crate all 4 nights), she is potty trained, good with other dogs (although she loves to be the center of attention so she may need help with dominant dogs). She was fine with my little dogs. She is a good runner and loves her walks/runs. She needs someone who will exercise her to get out her fun pug energy.'
What is it about a pug that just makes you smile? Starburst is no exception, and this 2-year old gal will keep you smiling all day long. With her curly-cue tail, smush face, and underbite, Starburst has all the classic looks of a Pug, but with something else thrown in we can't quite place. Her personality is classic Pug as well: playful, energetic, and if a dog does something she doesn't like, she corrects them and then moves on to the next adventure. Starburst was rescued from Kern County shelter in November, and she's loving her days with us playing and romping with all her doggie friends. She would love, however, to find a home that gives her endless love and play as these are two things she definitely cannot do without.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
