Rosarita's Story...

Named after famous Mexican beachfront cities - these easy-going puppies are going to make you feel like you’re on a vacation! These cuties were born on the last day of April to sweet mama Matisse ( ), whom we rescued from the Kern County Animal Shelter in April. It was quite the pleasant surprise when we discovered that she was pregnant - and a few weeks later we have these adorable, thriving, lively puppies! So far they seem to be taking after their mom which is great news since Matisse is a sweet, gentle, and a very happy little lady. There are 4 boys and 1 baby sister in this litter, and we estimate they will be around 50 lbs full grown. The Mexican Beach puppies have spent their entire lives in the care of a foster home, and their foster parents have had nothing but great things to say about them. Little Rosarita (dubbed Rosie) was a premie and needs a little more special attention than her brothers, but that certainly isn’t holding her back any! Despite her partial deafness and blindness, her foster parents say she still very strong and is keeping up with her big brothers. She will need a patient and loving family to give her the life our sweet baby girl deserves!

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.
