Ruff Ruff! My name is Fandango
|Breed:||Australian Shepherd/Papillon Mix||Color:||White - With Black||Age:||Young|

I am already neutered, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.
In the few months Fandango has been with us he has been dubbed The Happiest Dog on Earth. He greets every morning with unbridled enthusiasm and believes every homecoming by his foster humans should be cause for great celebration. Truly, it's impossible not to smile around this little dude. Fandango is an interesting dog mix - aside from being part mini Australian Shepherd and Papillon, we think he is part Einstein (note the crazy hair), part Helen Keller (he can't hear), and part Thumper (he has the cutest bunny hop when he runs). Fandango's favorite past time is getting pets from his people; if that isn't an option he loves to play with other dogs or sunbath in the back yard. On exceptionally hot days he can be found sitting in front of a box fan doing his best impersonation of a pop singer in a music video. One of Fandango's greatest qualities he is has no idea he isn't quite like other dogs. His deafness doesn't bother him one bit and he is clueless to the fact he has a genetic defect which affects the way his back legs move. When he walks, he has the swagger of John Wayne, when he runs he uses his back legs like a rabbit. His hind legs don't give him a lot of power, but he swears he is Air Jordan every time he jumps over the threshold of the doggy door! Fandango is about 1 1/2 years old and 14 pounds. According to the vet he should live a happy, healthy life; he'll just be a little weeble wobbly. None of his genetic issues require any special medicine or effort. He might just need a touch more patience and a loving home that doesn't mind if he walks funny. If you'd like to meet this pooch be prepared to fall in love.

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.
